A University of Kansas football player was arrested Monday morning in Missouri.

Corione Harris, 20, was arrested on suspicion of failure to appear, according to the booking log on

Per court logs, Harris received a ticket for speeding on March 8. Harris’ license was suspended on July 29 after missing his court date on July 23.

“We are aware of the matter involving our student-athlete and will handle it internally,” Kansas Athletics spokesman Dan Beckler said in a statement to the Journal-World.

The Platte County Sheriff's Office did not respond to a phone call seeking more information Monday afternoon, but a current inmate list did not show Harris’ name.

Harris, a sophomore cornerback from New Orleans, has played in all six games this season for the Jayhawks. Harris has 14 tackles on the year, while recording two pass deflections as well.

Last season, Harris played all 12 games as a true freshman. He finished with 44 tackles and one interception to go along with five pass deflections. Harris, who was a four-star recruit out of high school, was brought to the program by the previous coaching staff.

Kansas (2-4, 0-3 Big 12) has a bye this week but will travel to Texas on Oct. 19.

Dipsht. He needs to worry more about how he plays than he does his glorious mane. And maybe he should show up at court or pay the fine before the court date or just get his sht together. And maybe intercept a pass every once in awhile.

This is getting to be an annual profile of a KU football or basketball player. How many more players from Louisina are going to get arrested? Anyone want to lay odds on how many more football or BB players are going to get in legal problems? I hear the O/U is 10!

A college student gets a speeding ticket and doesn't pay fine! This is an outrage! Call in Woodward and Bernstein, we need to get to the bottom of this immediately or before you know it, college kids will get out of control and start drinking or having sex.

Before you know it.

Other comments would be even more comical if they weren’t serious 🤪

"Suspicion" of failure to appear? Does that mean that the court "suspects" that he didn't appear? Are there any lawyers out there who can explain that wording?

Coach Miles should mandate crew cuts for all and be done with all this tomfoolery. And lights out at 10 pm.

Just freaking go to court. Nobody is going to frown on you for having to go. You aren't the only one.
