Should the Jayru Campbell saga that lingers on really play out in court? 

That's the question people are asking the morning after charges were sought on Campbell for his bodyslam on a security guard at his Cass Tech high school last month. 

Of course we all know by now that Campbell is a verbally committed football player of the Michigan State as of 2015. 

That scholarship has been in doubt ever since the incident, and these charges will surely compound the quarterback's future football problems. 

Campbell is still only 17, and Charlie Langton, a Fox News Legal specialist spoke on the network in a three-way, very one sided discussion about Campbell.

"These charges are majorly serious charges. First of all the prosecutor will come back with a charge to do with assault that could do great bodily harm, less than murder," he told Fox.  

"And if you took a look at the tape. The size of this football player and the force that he used. I'm telling you, I'm surprised it took this long to bring charges. Nobody will justify throw a guy on the floor like this guy did."

The interview on Fox was one sided, with Rico Beard also laying into Campbell.

"I think they may make an example of him. They could well be a bit harder on him because of who he is," admitted Beard."

Jayru is still only a child, and it's a shame that even though he may deserve this punishment, the very public nature of the saga could well destroy his future on and off the field.
