Maurice Clarett is a former American football running back who played for the Ohio State Buckeyes football team. He also played professionally for the Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League. During his freshman year at The Ohio State University in 2002, he helped lead the Buckeyes to a national championship. In a widely unexpected move, Clarett was drafted on the first day of the 2005 NFL Draft with the final pick of the 3rd round (#101 overall) by the Denver Broncos. He is well known for unsuccessfully challenging the NFL’s draft eligibility rules requiring a player to be three years removed from high school.
Clarett is author of One and Done: How My Life Started After My Football Career Ended, a nationally celebrated public speaker, founder of a successful behavioral health agency in both Youngstown and Columbus, and co-host of Business and Biceps, a top-rated business podcast.
