Or, the dream of a rap career. Either way, 2013 Michigan State commit Jay Harris (not pictured) is trading his helmet and pads for a microphone.
In an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer, Harris said his commitment to the Spartans was “halfhearted” and that he’s been more interested in a music career.
“I’ve been thinking about doing this for a couple of years now,” said Harris
Harris, a three-star wide receiver, goes under the name Jay DatBull and his first single, DatBull 4 Life, already has 50,000 views on YouTube. You can view the video HERE. It’s…. something!
But hey, I’m not one to put down someone else’s dream. Go get ‘em, Jay… DatBull.
And besides, do it now before you get on campus and the NCAA revokes your eligibility.
Updated 10:00 p.m. ET: Well, this is an interesting development.
The Philadelphia Inquirer has updated its story from earlier that Michigan State commit Jay Harris chose to chase his musical ambitions over a chance to play for the Spartans.
Turns out, that may not entirely be true. Now the paper states that Harris had his scholarship stripped by MSU after he posted his rap videos on YouTube. A Michigan State spokesman told the paper parting ways with Harris was “a mutual decision.”
