Willimantic, Conn. - Eastern Connecticut State University's Office of Equity and Diversity will present "A Conversation with Maurice Clarett" as part of the University Hour Series at 3 p.m. on Feb. 26 in the Student Center Theatre.
Clarett's life has been very public as football took him places he never could have imagined. In his freshman year at Ohio State University, Clarett rushed for 1,247 yards and helped lead his team to the national championship. Clarett has been referred to as one of the greatest impact freshman collegiate football players to ever play the game by many sports enthusiasts. His life choices in the years following that stellar freshman year lead to his dismissal from college and a four-year prison sentence. In this University Hour event, Clarett will share his life story with the hope of imparting wisdom he has learned the hard way.
University Hour is free and open to the public.
