Nearly four years after ending his football career with 16 percent body fat and an aggravated robbery charge, Maurice Clarett is heading back to school in order to get his life back on track. No word yet as to whether or not he plans to join the diving team or get even with that crusty old dean.
The 26-years-old former football star returned to Ohio State University campus this week after a brief stay in prison. He has begun taking classes over the summer semester and hopes to graduate in the coming years.
“This is a surreal feeling to be back at Ohio State in such a supportive environment," Clarett said in a statement. "I have looked forward to being back in school, and I'm doing my best to fit in with other students. I don't want to be a distraction or nuisance to the football team or to students on campus."
Clarett is unable to play football (or vote), but remains optimistic about his future. According to the Columbus Dispatch, he plans to get his degree and open a fitness center for geriatric patients.
Again, no word about the diving team, crusty old dean or hilarious plans to ruin the rival Fraternity's 'Golf Pros and Tennis Hoes" party.
