The former OSU running back says he received a number of improper benefits in his 1+ year at Ohio State. He told ESPN that Jim and Dick Tressel were involved with giving him loaner cars, that he got money from boosters, got lined up with a job that he didn't need to attend, and had help with papers. Several former teammates support Clarett's statements.
