Former Ohio State running back Maurice Clarett will try a new sport in a rugby event next week, reports the Columbus Dispatch.

Clarett will play for the Columbus affiliate of Tiger Rugby, the rugby development program for selecting the team that will represent the U.S. at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Clarett is scheduled to play in the The Ohio Rugby Sevens Invitational in Mechanicsburg on May 25.

Clarett played one season at Ohio State, rushing for 1,237 yards and scored 18 touchdowns and helped Ohio State win the 2002 BCS National Championship.  He was dismissed from the program the following season for accepting improper benefits.

The Denver Broncos selected Clarett in the third round of the 2005 NFL Draft but released him in training camp. He served 3½ years in prison on robbery and concealed weapons charges, then played for the Omaha Nighthawks in the UFL in 2011.
