Jayru Campbell, the troubled Detroit Cass Tech quarterback who missed his senior season after run-ins with the law and time in jail, announced on Twitter tonight he’s going to college at New Mexico Military Institute.

He’ll presumably attended the two-year junior college program in Roswell, N.M. The football team is in the Western States Football League, though Campbell has not indicated if he’ll play football.

Though Campbell didn’t say he was going to play football, the Broncos are in the Western States Football League. After graduating, students could “pursue commissions in the U.S. Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Merchant Marines,” according to the school’s website.

Once a highly-touted prospect, Campbell, who won a state championship as a freshman and sophomore quarterback, was committed to Michigan State. But he was videotaped bodyslamming a school security guard at Cass Tech early last year, which eventually landed him in jail for a couple of months.

Once he was released from jail in September, he assaulted his girlfriend on school grounds, violating his probation. He went back to jail until this past January.
