Jayru Campbell no longer a Michigan State commit


Jayru Campbell told reporters Friday that there’s now a wait-and-see approach to his recruiting process.

We didn’t have to wait too long to see what’s next for the Cass Tech quarterback, because Monday night the 6-foot-3, 175-pound standout announced the he is no longer committed to Michigan State.

The announcement came four days after Cincinnati offered the three star at a local camp. There have been rumors floating around that the Bearcats are now the favorite to land them, while another rumor claims that he wants to leave the state to start a new life. However, neither rumor has been verified at this time.

Michigan State decided to move on from Campbell in May after he received a sentence of 60 days in jail, probation and community service for body slamming a school security guard last school year. Because of his jail sentence, he is expected to miss the beginning of the football season and will most likely lose his starting position on the team altogether.

Campbell still holds offers from Eastern Michigan, LSU, Miami, Notre Dame and Wisconsin. Now that his recruitment is open again, he’ll likely see more offers from middle-tier programs in the American and Mid-American conferences.

It’s open season. Who wants a dual-threat quarterback?

    “Who wants a dual-threat quarterback?” In this case the threats are assault and battery. (Sorry, I could not help myself.) I do wish Mr. Campbell well in whatever direction he goes.
