Report: LSU transfer CB Denver Harris faces discipline for role in fight

Cornerback Denver Harris, a former five-star prospect who transferred to LSU this offseason, may be given “time away” from the program over his role in a fight at practice last week, 247Sports reported Tuesday.

Harris was absent from practice Monday and Tuesday, according to reporters in Baton Rouge, La. He was missing from the LSU team photo for the upcoming season, as well.

247Sports reported that Harris had a “pretty big role” in a fight at practice last week and attempted to instigate it further in the locker room.

The fight occurred Aug. 7 and involved punches and players being taken to the ground, the Baton Rouge Advocate reported. Wide receivers Malik Nabers and Kyren Lacy were dismissed from practice, and star linebacker Harold Perkins Jr. did not play another snap the rest of the day, the report said.

LSU coach Brian Kelly has not addressed Harris’ absence but is expected to do so Wednesday.

Despite rumors on social media, Harris has not been dismissed from the program, and his player bio is still available on the LSU football roster online.

Harris began his college career at Texas A&M and was one of three freshmen suspended indefinitely by coach Jimbo Fisher last season for an incident in the locker room at a road game. He did not play again for the Aggies after that.

In five games as a true freshman in 2022, Harris had 14 tackles and three pass breakups.

Reports: Texas A&M suspends 3 freshmen indefinitely

Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher has suspended three freshmen, including cornerback Denver Harris and wideout Chris Marshall, over a locker room incident at South Carolina last week, TexAgs and The Athletic reported Tuesday.

The suspensions, which also include offensive lineman PJ Williams, are indefinite, per the reports. Williams has not appeared in a game since the season opener.

Harris and Marshall were also part of a group of four freshmen suspended in September for a violation of team rules. They all missed the Miami game.

Harris has 14 tackles and three passes defensed in five games. He was a 5-star prospect and the 23rd best player in the Class of 2022, per the 247Sports composite.

Marshall has 11 receptions for 108 yards in three games (two starts). He was also a 5-star recruit in Fisher’s stellar 2022 class.

Texas A&M (3-4, 1-3 SEC) hosts No. 15 Ole Miss (7-1, 3-1) on Saturday. The Aggies lost to the Gamecocks 30-24 last week, marking their third straight loss.
