Ohio State University says former football star Maurice
Clarett has been granted re-entry to pursue his degree after he spent more than three years in prison.
Clarett says in a statement that it is a “surreal feeling to be back at Ohio State” and that he doesn’t want to be a “distraction or nuisance” to the football team or other students.
Clarett led the Buckeyes to the 2002 national championship in his only college season. He pleaded guilty in 2006 to aggravated robbery and carrying a concealed weapon, and served 3½ years in prison, where he took college-credit courses.
