Jayru Campbell was in court for just 15 minutes as his lawyer requested his client's preliminary exam be waived.

Campbell's next court date in March 10th at 9 a.m. where he'll be arraigned in Circuit Court.

Campbell, a junior quarterback with Cass Tech, has been highly recruited by college football programs. Michigan State University offered him a scholarship and he gave a verbal commitment to the East Lansing school.

The university won't comment on whether Campbell's scholarship would be pulled.

It released this statement: "NCAA rules prohibit institutions from commenting on specific prospects until a National Letter of Intent has been signed."
