It's never too early for prospects to start getting into legal trouble...

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- Oregon cornerback Cliff Harris has been cited with driving 118 mph on a suspended license.

Oregon State police say Harris, 20, was pulled over after an off-duty trooper spotted him about 4:35 a.m. PDT Sunday on Interstate 5 south of Albany, Ore. An on-duty officer clocked Harris and pulled him over.

Harris was cited for driving with a suspended license and exceeding the speed limit in excess of 100 mph. Police say he was driving a rental car.

The fine for driving a vehicle faster than 100 mph is $1,148.

Harris excelled as a sophomore last season at cornerback and on special teams. He had six interceptions and set an Oregon record with four punt returns for touchdowns.

Known for his entertaining banter with reporters, Harris dubbed the BCS championship "The Natty." Oregon lost to Auburn in the title game in January after going 12-0 last season.

Oregon officials did not immediately respond Monday to a request for comment.

Last month, Oregon linebacker Kiko Alonso pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of trespassing and criminal mischief. He was sentenced to two years of probation, 200 hours of community service and alcohol treatment.

Alonso, 20, was suspended indefinitely from the team by coach Chip Kelly.

Can he even rent a car? I know for a lot of companies you need to be 25, but some have exceptions.

Others have an under 25 fee instead.
Military members get the under 25 restriction/fee waived.
A nice perk I learned when I was 18 and didnt know under-25 people couldn't rent cars.
Thank God I opened my wallet in front of the clerk.

Perfect example of why we should pay student-athletes. They need a little extra spending money.

Apparently the car was rented by someone who works for Oregon and because of that it is a ncaa violation. Saw this on ESPN and they acted like the violation wasn't too major.

They actually do get allowances due to their scholarship going over the ammount needed.

Listen dude, the 40 will be fast. It's time to move on to other things. Like what an idiot he is.

I dunno. He's a young kid and young kids make mistakes. At least wasn't drunk, high or getting a blowy from a hooker. He made a mistake and now he'll pay for it.

I wouldn't go ahead a slap a DND label on him. He's a great player and will probably run pretty close to a 4.42. I suppose we'll see.

You mean "lots of mistakes". He has over $8500 in unpaid fines.

The only reason that this isn't bigger news is that it's Oregon.

As Jimmy Smith proved, it won't take long for those "flags" to disappear.

Oh, I have no doubt that the NFL doesn't really care.

And I'm sure an Oregon staffer, er Nike, er his parents will pay the fines.

I'm not saying anything about his draft stock. I'm just saying that by this, and all other accounts, he's an idiot.

Also, I'm saying shylo needs to get past the 40 thing. The 40 is fast regardless of what the Ducks' website says.

Why deal with small cash players like Pryor and instead borrow money from someone in the SEC?

He would have clocked 130 at tOSU.
