Tressel reacts to Clarett news

Quotes from Coach Tressel on the news of Maurice Clarett's lawsuit

At today's coach's luncheon, OSU head coach Jin Tressel reacted to the news of Maurice Clarett's lawsuit that has been brought against the NFL.

"I just heard that five or ten minutes ago," Tressel said. "I don't know much about what's behind that decision.

"If he's testing the waters, and that's how he's approaching it, I don't have much reaction because I don't know how he's approaching it."

Tressel did confirm he talked to Clarett's mother Michelle last night.

"I talked to his mom last night, and she said he is all set to begin classes on Wednesday, so as far as I know, yeah, he should be in class," he said.

Will the legal challenge work against the chance to be reinstated?

"No, not that I'm aware of," Tressel said.
