Maurice Clarett re-enrolls at Ohio State…maybe this time he will go to class and do his own work

July 27, 2010

These days are long gone...focus on the books

I certainly hope so.  The time of prison might have shown him that playtime is over…

COLUMBUS, Ohio — 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.

They are not escorting you to the Heisman ceremony or class

Ohio State spokesman Jim Lynch says in a statement that Clarett started classes on Monday after he was readmitted by the College of Education and Human Ecology, where he was originally enrolled.

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 a Toledo prison, where he took college-credit courses.

Maybe he got some credits in prison…I hope him good luck and that he truly learned from this lesson.  The education can take him farther than football…

    And we’re meant to feel good ’bout this? Here’s a guy who spurned a golden opportunity offered to him. Merely atypical of the loutish behavior of the modern day athlete too fuck_ng dumb for his own good !

    Wasted talent!!! Too bad MC is a bozo or we could have had a real challenge to the NFL draft exclusionary policies. Lesser know fact is that MC won his challenge in court but was overturned on appeal. The judgment was handed down by Obama’s girl, and new Supreme Court Justice, Sonia Sotomayor. Maybe this is how she sold out to get tapped.
