Clarett cleared to practice during suspension
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio State went 3-0 without Maurice Clarett last year, in its way to a national championship. The Buckeyes may have to double that performance this season, if they want to repeat.
Clarett will miss six games due to suspensions for violating NCAA rules and giving false statements to campus police, an Ohio State source told the Cleveland Plain Dealer for Saturday's editions.
Clarett was suspended from the team for "multiple games" on Friday for his role in the exaggerated theft report. Clarett reported losses of $800 in cash and $9,500 in merchandise after a 2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo was burglarized in April. Clarett borrowed the car from a local dealership.
Clarett, who rushed for an Ohio State freshman record 1,237 yards last year, helped lead the Buckeyes to the national championship. He scored the winning touchdown in Ohio State's 31-24 double-overtime victory over Miami in the Fiesta Bowl.
