Maurice Clarett Appears in New Commercial for Columbus Auto Finance Company

In the three years Maurice Clarett has been out of prison, he's worked hard to rehabilitate his image. He's worked extensively with charity, penned a book and even has a new ESPN 30 for 30 coming out.

The hard work on his end is starting to pay off, literally, as local auto financing outfit Columbus Approved called upon Clarett to appear in a commercial promoting loans for those that may have trouble getting one.

It's hard not to now. There's nothing better than seeing someone understand the errors he previously made and correcting them the best way he possibly can, but also work very hard at educating children on understanding humility and being a class act. I'm glad to see that he's made a 180 in his life and will continue rooting for him as well!

Have you tried Not Your Father's Root Beer?  It tastes just like the real thing, but it packs a punch (5.9%ABV).  It's a little sweet for me though.  Two is my limit.

I saw him and Roy Hall at BJ's Brewhouse in Polaris a while back. They were promoting their charity.
It's hard not to cheer for this guy to get back on track... 

And when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of boooooooooze!! And we'll drink to old Ohio 'till we wobble in our shoes.

I thought Maurice Hall was the pitch man?

Very respectfully,

I would rather have Maurice Clarett on the coaching staff than Tim freaking Tebow. 
Way to go, Mo!

I can only imagine Mo coaching up OSUs stable of RBs.
