Maurice Clarett has joined the Tiger Rugby Olympic Development Program in Columbus, Ohio in hopes of making it to the Rio Games in 2016.
I really hope he is able to make the 2016 olympic squad and think he could be a fantastic rugby player. Apparently he is already getting pretty rave reviews from some of the trainers. He also may be starting a trend of former football players making a transition to rugby in hopes of winning an olympic medal. Carlin Isles is a current rugby player who recently transitioned from track and football to rugby with great success, being called the fastest man in rugby. Here's to MoC making a comeback via the olympics.
