For him to say that he took responsibilty for his past mistakes and is ready to move on is utterly laughable. He pointed his finger at everyone else but HIMSELF! I still remember Jim Brown coming to his aid and saying he was just a misunderstood kid and that what was hapening to him carried a hint of racism.
I knew people who attended OSU while Clarett was there. One of them was on the team and roomed with Michael Jenkins. Ask the student body what they thought of this kid while there. That is where you'll get the truth on him, and it wasn't pretty. He thought he was above everything else (including the NCAA regulations), and that no one would dare touch him. He was involved in alot more then just what came out in the media. And alot of the students on campus knew of it all too.
Where will he go? I'll tell ya where I'd like him to go.
I know I personally can vouch for everything you just said, but its a lot more involved than just Clarett... and i personally dont think there's a major athletic university in this country that can honestly say they don't give preferential treatment to their athletes.
