Another day, another football player transferred to the SWAC, as former Kansas and McNeese State defensive back Corione Harris announced Tuesday he is transferring to Southern.
Harris is one of two players that have recently announced their commitment to Southern, as former Grambling State quarterback Noah Bodden also announced he too is transferring to play for the Jags.
Entering the college ranks via Landry-Walker High School in New Orleans, Harris was a four-star recruit in the class of 2017.
He received offers from LSU, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Missouri and Arkansas among other schools. After originally committing to LSU, he later decommitted deciding to attend Kansas.

Harris played 28 games in three seasons with Jayhawks totaling 69 tackles, two forced fumbles, and an interception.
He then transferred to McNeese State where he contributed to what was the best defense in the Southland Conference.
Harris posted 52 total tackles, 3.0 tackles for loss, 2.0 sacks, and seven passes defended (9th in Southland).
Southern has loaded up on defensive transfers including former All-SWAC defensive lineman Jason Dumas and Colorado linebacker transfer Zephaniah Maea.
In what will be head coach Eric Dooley’s first season with the team, the Jags certainly look like a contender in what is sure to be a loaded SWAC conference.
