Michigan State Pulls Scholarship from WR Who Would Rather Be a Rapper Anyway
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.
Harris, ranked the 17th-best recruit in the state, originally signed a letter of intent with the Spartans in February.
Honestly, a rap career may be less dangerous than going over the middle in MSU’s aerial-challenged offense, so good luck to him.
