Well, this doesn't happen too often:
Downingtown East star wide out Jay Harris said he decided to forego attending Michigan State on a football scholarship in order to chase his dream of being a rapper.
Harris said he told Spartans quarterbacks coach Brad Salem of the news last week. He will release a mixtape on June 1 and has a single here on YouTube. Harris conceded that his commitment during his senior year was half-heated and the only career he saw was music.
Harris originally chose the Spartans over offers from Old Dominion and Temple. Seantrel Henderson's father was unavailable for comment.
It appears that Michigan State may have had a hand in Harris quitting football. He has also been dropped from Pennsylvania's Big 33 roster.
