COLUMBUS, Ohio - Maurice Clarett will be at Ohio State for the start of classes Sept. 24, and playing for the Buckeyes again is still a possibility, a key member of Clarett's inner circle said yesterday. While NCAA violations have cost him the 2003 season, Clarett can return to the team next year if he meets certain criteria. "All that stuff got blown out of proportion with the NFL releasing that statement," said Clarett's cousin Vince Marrow. Clarett, meanwhile, entered a not-guilty plea through his attorney on a misdemeanor falsification charge in Franklin County Municipal Court.

Maurice Clarett took the microphone and worked his way down the stairs on the left side of the stage of the Frederick Douglass auditorium. He wasn't going to put himself on a pedestal, he was going to tell his story about hitting rock bottom, from the ground floor. Wearing a gray suit, Clarett - in a low, raspy voice - told 69 football players from Baltimore high schools that three and a half weeks after his now-fiancee, Ashley Evans gave birth to his daughter, he was arrested, and subsequently served three and a half years in jail.

INDIANAPOLIS - Maurice Clarett had it all and then he had nothing. Three years ago, he was a celebrity at Ohio State, and then he became a pariah. In one long, slow-motion slide toward oblivion, Clarett went from ramrod on the Buckeyes' last national championship team to national afterthought. Or worse, national embarrassment. Now he's back. Back from self-imposed exile in California. Back from a two-year hiatus from the football field. And in that rarity of rarities, back in the NFL draft.

The federal judge who opened the NFL draft door to Maurice Clarett pushed him through it yesterday, denying a motion to suspend her week-old decision to eliminate the league's eligibility rule. U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin reaffirmed her ruling that the NFL violated antitrust law by allowing only players three years removed from high school graduation to enter the draft. Her rejection of the NFL's appeal for a stay frees the 20-year-old running back, along with other college underclassmen and even high school players, to enter the April draft.

TEMPE, Ariz. - Ever since he stepped onto the Ohio State campus last spring, Maurice Clarett has rarely stepped out of the spotlight. Yet the attention Clarett has received this season for his exploits on the field, and the notoriety that followed his disagreements with teammates and coaches, seems to have paled in comparison to the circus-like atmosphere that has shadowed the freshman tailback the past two days. As the second-ranked Buckeyes get ready for Friday's national championship game against No. 1 Miami in the Fiesta Bowl at Sun Devil Stadium, the spotlight is on Clarett.
