Michigan State recruit Jayru Campbell gets 60 days in jail


Heralded Michigan State quarterback recruit Jayru Campbell was sentenced to serve 60 days in jail Friday for body slamming a Detroit Cass Tech security guard earlier this school year.

According to MLive.com reporter Gus Burns, the sentence begins July 28, after the Cass Tech standout finishes summer school to make up the time he missed because of his explusion from school.

This court order certainly impacts Campbell’s upcoming football season, because the five star may still be in jail after the 2014-15 school year begins.

“If he’s not released for good behavior, Campbell could miss nearly a month of his senior year and the beginning of football season,” Burns wrote.

If he’s not released for good behavior, Campbell could miss nearly a month of his senior year and the beginning of football season.

It’s very likely Michigan State will come forward in the next couple of months on whether it’ll honor Campbell’s scholarship or not. The best bet is that the Spartans pull his offer and he attends a junior college to repair his image away from the spotlight.

Campbell, who is 6-foot-3 and 180 pounds, helped Cass Tech win back-to-back state championships in 2011 and 2012, but the Technicians fell to Detroit Catholic Central 28-0 in the state playoffs last season.

He is credited with three days served in jail.
