West Virginia sophomore defensive lineman Korey Harris has reportedly been dismissed from the team after being arrested late last week.
According to multiple reports, the already-suspended lineman has been charged with first-degree armed robbery. The robbery allegedly happened July 12 in Morgantown and involved breaking into a home, holding two residents at gunpoint and stealing cash and electronics, according to a report on WBOY-TV.
While his dismissal from the team has not been officially announced, WV MetroNews reported that WVU football sports information director Mike Montoro said, "We have no comment on individuals who aren't with the West Virginia football program," when asked about the incident. The report also noted that Harris has been removed from the team's online roster.
The story further states that "a relative said one of the victims recognized Harris, who was wearing his WVU-issued sweatpants with the No. 96 on them."
Harris was suspended from the team for the spring semester for undisclosed reasons.
