DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit schools have readmitted a high school football star accused of body-slamming a school guard to the ground.

Cass Technical High School quarterback Jayru Campbell is charged with assault. Prosecutors say the 17-year-old junior slammed the guard to the ground in January after refusing to follow school policy and pull a hood off his head.

The confrontation was recorded on video.

The Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press report the Detroit Public Schools announced Thursday that Campbell has been readmitted to Cass Tech.

Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Timothy Kenny says he’s considering a prosecutor’s recommendation that Campbell be sentenced under the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act, which could clear any conviction. A decision is expected May 2

Campbell has said he’ll play for Michigan State in 2015.
