West Virginia DL Korey Harris kicked off team after burglary


West Virginia has kicked Korey Harris off their football team after an arrest for armed burglary.

According to a report issued by the Morgantown Police Department, Harris was one of three suspects who broke in to a residence on July 12 and held those inside at gunpoint while burglarizing the house.

Harris was arrested on Friday after being identified by a victim who noticed his No. 96 on his West Virginia issued sweat pants.

A sophomore, Harris played in 11 games last season for the Mountaineers and had four tackles. Harris was suspended by coach Dana Holgorsen last April, although the reason was never made public.

When asked about Harris a spokesman for the Mountaineers said the school had “no comment on individuals who aren’t with the West Virginia football program.”
