Maurice Clarett will be headed back to school this summer, when he continues his education at THE Ohio State University. The former freshman sensation was released from prison in April after serving four years of a seven and a half year sentence for aggravated robbery and carrying a concealed weapon. You know, college stuff.

After almost four years in jail, Maurice Clarett is headed back to school … the same school he left after his freshman year. Ohio State confirmed Clarett has been granted enrollment at the university and will start classes this summer.

“Maurice Clarett has been granted re-entry into the Ohio State University, following a review by the College of Education and Human Ecology,” said Jim Lynch, director of media relations for Ohio State.

“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.”

Who was the guy that got rejected so Maurice could be accepted? A go-getter, I’m sure. His resume must have been written in pencil on a barbeque-sauce-covered Chili’s napkin. Psh Amateurs. My resume is written on a Red Lobster napkin, to distinguish myself as a classy gentleman. Maurice highlights after the jump.
