VIDEO: Top MSU Recruit, QB Jayru Campbell, Arrested For Assault and Battery
Detroit Free Press: The quarterback of the Cass Tech High School football team has been arrested in connection with an attack on a security guard.
“Jayru Campbell was arrested yesterday by the Detroit Public Schools Police Department and charged with assault and battery, a misdemeanor, based on an incident that occurred inside the school at Cass Tech yesterday at dismissal time,” DPS Assistant Superintendent Steve Wasko said today.
Wasko was insistent that charges had been filed, but Maria Miller, a spokeswoman for the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office, cautioned that her office had not received information about the incident.
Campbell, a junior, verbally committed to play college football at Michigan State, but commitments are nonbinding until national letters of intent are signed in February 2015. Per NCAA rules, college coaches are not allowed to comment publicly on unsigned recruits.
Campbell committed to MSU in August, turning down scholarship offers from Alabama, Notre Dame and Wisconsin, among others. He is rated as a four-star recruit by Rivals.com.
