1280253636 97 Maurice Clarett back at Ohio State

Former Ohio State football star Maurice Clarett is back at Ohio State.

Clarett has been granted re-entry at the school to pursue his degree after spending three years in prison.

The former Buckeyes running back started classes on Monday according to a statement by the school and was readmitted by the College of Education and Human Ecology.

Clarett spent one season at Ohio State leading the Buckeyes to 14-0 record and a BCS national championship in 2002. He finished the year rushing for 1,237 yards and 18 TDs. the Ohio native was in-and-out of trouble with the university and eventually was dismissed after he filed a false police report concerning clothes, cds, and stereo equipement stolen from a car he borrowed from a local dealership.

After winning a lawsuit that allowed him to enter the NFL Draft, Clarett was selected by the Denver Broncos in the third round. Trouble followed Clarett to Denver and eventually the Broncos released him in 2005.

He pleaded guilty in 2006 to aggravated robbery and carrying a concealed weapon. He served 3 1/2 years in a Toledo prison where he took college-credit courses.

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.
