Clarett will try rugby

Former Buckeye tailback Maurice Clarett may be done with football, but he's not hanging up the cleats permanently. He's making a run at rugby.

The Columbus Dispatch reported Friday that Clarett will play for the Columbus affiliate of Tiger Rugby, the rugby developmental program for selecting the squad that will represent the United States in Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

The Ohio Rugby Sevens Invitational will take place in Mechanicsburg on May 25.
