Korey Harris, a sophomore defensive lineman, is no longer with the West Virginia football team following an arrest for first-degree armed robbery.
Harris was arrested last Friday for a July 12 home invasion, where Harris and two others entered a Morgantown home and held the residents at gun point while burglarizing the house. One tiny flaw in Harris' plan: He was wearing his WVU-issued sweatpants with a #96 - his uniform number, as you can see above - on them. The three men got away with cash and electronics.
Harris is being held in North Central Regional Jail with bail set at $75,000. In April, head coach Dana Holgorsen announced that Harris was suspended from the team for spring semester.
Harris' bio is no longer on West Virginia's website and his name isn't listed on the official roster. When asked about Harris, WVU's director of football communications Mike Montoro told WBOY-TV, "We have no comment on individuals who aren't with the West Virginia Football program." The three-star Florida native played in 11 games last year as a true freshman, notching four tackles.
We have seen some dumb college football-related incidents so far this offseason - barking at a police dog and attempting a jail break with hedge trimmers, for example - but nothing that managed to mix the danger of armed robbery with the stupidity of wearing your uniform number during the crime quite like this.
