Jay Harris, a wide receiver from Downingtown East High School in Exton, Pa., is foregoing a football scholarship to pursue a rap career, Philly.com’s Matt Breen reports. Harris is a senior and had 54 catches for 792 yards and 13 touchdowns last season. He was listed as a three-star recruit by Rivals and Scout, but he says he had been thinking about his rap career for a while. “I’ve been thinking about doing this for a couple of years now,” Harris told Philly.com. “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 also told Philly.com that his commitment to Michigan State was halfhearted. It’s probably a good thing he didn’t stick to it especially since he seems to have a strong dedication to weed, too: But I roll Tha weed up… And I bake — Jay DatBull (@JayDatBullMusic) May 9, 2013 I be smokin on a lotta killa! — Jay DatBull (@JayDatBullMusic) May 13, 2013 #DOPE twitter.com/JayDatBullMusi… — Jay DatBull (@JayDatBullMusic) May 3, 2013 Harris performs under the name “Jay DatBull.” His rap single “Datbull 4 Life” was posted to YouTube on April 27 and has over 50,000 views. He’s planning to release a mixtape in June. You can listen to his single below. H/T Kegs N Eggs
