Three-Star Dual-Threat QB, Jayru Campbell, Decommits from Michigan State

Jayru Campbell, who was recently sentenced to 60 days in jail (among other things) for body-slamming his Cass Tech security guard, has decided to decommit from Mark Dantonio's Michigan State Spartans.

Campell is an electric, dual-threat quarterback prospect and was considered quite the haul by the Spartans.


“I would say I have opened up the recruiting process again and decommitted from Michigan State,” Campbell said in an interview with Detroit’s WXYZ-TV (Channel 7) that aired late Monday night. “I’m just trying to enjoy the recruitment process for my last year in high school.”


Campbell, who told WXYZ he has been taking anger management classes on Saturdays, was sentenced to 60 days in jail, probation and community service last month for the assault that occurred in a school hallway. He must turn himself in July 28, which gives him time to complete summer school. Then he will begin serving the final 57 days of his sentence — he was credited with three days spent in custody — in the Wayne County Jail.

Michigan State coaches can't comment on a recruit until he signs a National Letter of Intent.
