WVU player leaves number, arrested

July 21, 2013

No. 96 in your program, No. 1 in your police lineup.

West Virginia defensive lineman Korey Harris might as well have worn a T-shirt that said, “I am Korey Harris” when he allegedly participated in an armed robbery in Morgantown.

Police say Harris and two others robbed residents of a home at gunpoint. A victim said Harris was one of the robbers. How did the victim know? The robber was wearing Mountaineers-issued football sweatpants with No. 96, Harris’ number, on them.

Harris reportedly was arrested Friday. He previously had been suspended from the football team for the spring semester and now has been kicked off the squad.


If he’d been kicked off before, maybe he wouldn’t have been wearing those sweats.
