The saga of former star Ohio State running back Maurice Clarett continues to roll. The latest news, however, is hopefully a step in the right direction for a man with all of the talent in the world.

According to, Clarett has joined the Tiger Rugby Olympic Development Program in Columbus, Ohio in hopes of making it to the Rio Games in 2016.

Maurice Clarett has joined the Tiger Rugby Olympic Development Program in Columbus, Ohio. “He’s committed to try to make Rio 2016,” said Tiger Rugby director Paul Holmes. “That’s Maurice’s plan.”

The 29-year-old former Ohio State and Denver Broncos running back met and worked out with Holmes Wednesday before agreeing to join the program. Holmes was impressed with Clarett’s athleticism, despite his being out of football for years.

“He’s ridiculous. That’s all I can say,” said Holmes of Clarett. “His footwork is phenomenal. He’s nowhere near conditioned for rugby, but that will come…The stuff he’s doing in the gym right now, he’s just ridiculous.”

While he has a long road ahead of him to make the U.S. Team, it’s good to see Clarett striving to achieve something after spending several years in the dump.
