Graduating from high school, wide receiver Jay Harris was ranked No. 17 overall in Pennsylvania on ESPN’s RecruitingNation. That would explain why Michigan State recruited the standout player.
Don’t expect to see him on the football field anytime soon, however; you might catch him on MTV Jams.
Yesterday, Philly reported that Harris was giving up his Michigan State scholarship to become a rapper.
Jay was quoted as saying:
“I’ve always had this in the back of my head, but never had the courage to tell my parents that this is what I want to do.”
The site changed its story slightly today, saying that Jay had his scholarship taken from him after posting a pretty ratchet rap video on his YouTube page.
So where does the truth lie? Somewhere in the middle
MSU associate athletic director John Lewandowski officially said that Harris leaving the school was a mutual decision.
The video in question is called “DatBull 4 Life,” and it features Jay, who goes by the name Jay DatBull, rapping about the usual ratchet things in life: fast cash, easy woman, good drugs, etc. And there’s a lot of cursing, too.
We hope the kid doesn’t regret this decision. Watch the “DatBull 4 Life” video below.
