Felony, Misdemeanor Charges Sought Against MSU QB Commit Jayru Campbell

Above, you will find a video of what is allegedly highly-touted 2015 dual-threat QB (and Michigan State commit) Jayru Campbell almost suplexing Cass Tech's security guard through the crusts of the Earth. 

The event made waves a few weeks ago, and the ramifications are just becoming known. Today, a recommendation for a warrant was filed against the 17 year-old in the 36th District Court. 

According to records online, the possible charges include assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder (a felony) and aggravated assault, (a misdemeanor).

Here's Cass Tech's coach:

"I just heard about the charges,’’ Cass Tech football coach Thomas Wilcher said. “I really don’t know what to say. I don’t have anything to say about it, really. I’m just really in awe. I’m just ticked at the whole process.’’

It looks like you need to be ticked off at your star quarterback, coach.

No word yet on Campbell's commitment status from Michigan State, as they'll probably wait for this to run its course in full. Campbell isn't set to graduate until next year, so they have plenty of time.

Regardless, Campbell's about to get a glimpse into just how quickly everything you've worked for can get body-slammed to the turf.
