Jay Harris, one of the area’s top football recruits, was stripped of his scholarship by Michigan State earlier this month after he posted a series of profanity-laced rap videos on YouTube, a source said Tuesday.
Under the name “Jay DatBull,” the Downingtown East senior has uploaded nine videos to YouTube. Using explicit lyrics, Harris raps about drugs, women, and homosexuals.
His first single, “DatBull 4 Life,” surpassed 50,000 views over the weekend and appears to show Harris smoking marijuana while sitting behind the steering wheel of a car.
Harris, a senior wide receiver, said he freely chose a rap career over football. A Michigan State spokesman said it was “a mutual decision.”
“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,” Harris said.
The 5-foot-11, 162-pounder is ranked by ESPN as the state’s 17th-ranked senior and second-best wideout. He scored 13 touchdowns last season on 54 catches for 792 yards. He signed a binding letter of intent in February to attend Michigan State.
Ewwww....no college; no football; no education....hmmm WTF. Dayum, nobody can force son to lace up the cleats, instead of spitting nonsensical rhymes (I watched the video and the only skills on display is talking ish and smoking weed), but still: Really!!!
As one of the youtube viewer stated:
1. People would kill for a full scholarship. I hope one day you regret this decision and if not that's a shame.
2. You suck at rapping.
Real talk: Son, spend 6 months in rehab, get a strength/fitness trainer and get ur azz into someone's football program! Real Talk!
Here's an idea: Bo Jackson and Deion played football and baseball, you can't play football and learn how to rap?
