Maurice Clarett trying his hand at Rugby Sevens


LINK

quote:

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.”


I wonder what that 4.72 40yd dash looks like 8 years later.

I've seen a bumper sticker that read
Football is for those who didn't make the Rugby team

Guess he's reversing the order

Wouldn't mind seeing him in a #12 jersey.

I bet there are some legendary drinking nights with the team after those matches.

In rugby your # is determined by your position.

#12 is inside center.

I'll pull for the U.S., if he's on the team then hopefully he helps them out somehow

He got out a couple of years ago. I think he played briefly in the UFL and a smaller league.

Nah, he's been out for a while. He was back at tOSU for a while and I believe he finished his degree(or is currently).

People like to hate on Tressel, but even years later(and after they screwed him) he still acts like a father figure to Clarrett and Pryor.

Probably not gonna work out for him. He's already 29 and Rio is 3 years away. A little late in age to be getting into learning rugby.

Heck, yeah. I like any kind of increased awareness of Rugby.

I guess those people didn't realize the several football athletes that made the US Sevens team a couple of years ago....with almost no prior rugby experience but extensive football experience.

Bennie Brazell for one, and Miles Craigwell (former LB with Dolphins and Browns) is playing now.

As long as he's Dinky fit, he should be fine.
