Jayru Campbell decommits from Spartans, says 'I'm not a thug'

Written By Bill Bender

Detroit Cass Tech quarterback Jayru Campbell, who pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge in May, decommitted from Michigan State on Monday.

Campbell, a three-star recruit for the 2015 class, was sentenced to 60 days in jail, probation and community service from an incident in which he body slammed a Cass Tech security officer in January.

Campbell decommitted in an interview with WXYZ-Detroit.

"I’m not a thug," Campbell said in the interview. "I would not consider myself as a criminal. I would consider myself as a natural-born leader and someone that likes to help others."

Campbell is taking anger management classes, and Cass Tech coach Tom Wilcher said the quarterback is considering offers from schools such as Miami, LSU and Cincinnati.
