Jayru Campbell, a high school junior quarterback at Cass Tech in Detroit, may be in danger of losing his scholarship offer from Michigan State after being caught on video bodyslamming a security guard at school on Wednesday.

Word of the events from Wednesday began to spread over social media. A video purportedly showing Campbell bodyslamming the security guard was posted to Instagram and was widely shared. The video was later removed from Instagram, but it was uploaded to YouTube. One of his high school teammates discouraged fellow students from sharing details and media from the event on social media:

Though it’s nearly impossible to see who bodyslammed the security guard based on the video, multiple people have said it was Campbell. Campbell’s coach also confirmed to WXYZ that Campbell got in trouble at school on Wednesday, but the coach did not elaborate on the details.
