DETROIT (WJBK) -- A judge is considering whether to approve a plea deal in the case of a high school football star accused of body-slamming a school guard to the ground.

Cass Tech 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.

Wayne County Circuit Judge Timothy Kenny said Friday he would consider a prosecutor's recommendation that Campbell be sentenced under the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act, which allows young defendants to have a conviction erased if they complete sentence terms.

Reports say Kenny set a resolution date of May 2.

Campbell has said he will play for Michigan State University in 2015. He led Cass Tech to state championships in 2011 and 2012.
