COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Former Ohio State football star Maurice Clarett has withdrawn a request for early release from prison so he could pursue an NFL career.

Clarett had argued that the sooner he was released, the sooner he could make a comeback, possibly in the NFL. But he sent a letter Monday to the Ohio Parole Board explaining his decision to withdraw the request, Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction spokeswoman JoEllen Culp said Wednesday.

Parole board records are not public. A message left with Clarett's lawyer, Percy Squire, was not immediately returned.

Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien had opposed the move, saying the former Buckeyes standout hasn't made a strong case to be released so early in his prison term.

"It probably was a reality check by both Mr. Clarett and his lawyer that they had no chance of obtaining clemency under the circumstances," O'Brien said Wednesday.

Clarett, 25, was sentenced in September 2006 to serve at least 3 years for a holdup outside a Columbus bar and a separate highway chase earlier that year that ended with police finding loaded guns in his SUV.

O'Brien's office agreed to the 3-year term on the grounds Clarett behaved himself in prison.

Clarett could be out in March if a judge releases him early, although he would still have to spend six months in a halfway house.

Squire previously said Clarett had an opportunity to play NFL, arena or Canadian professional football if he was released within the next few months. O'Brien said it appeared Clarett wanted to be released in time to play football in Canada this year in preparation for a possible return to the NFL in 2010.

Hold the phone here shrink boy. It says he had planned to and was delayed due to not getting out early. Dont ya think he would still have the same intentions if he gets out next year???

It was bad enough the way it really happened...

We used our comp pick wich was the final pick of the 3rd round. Still HORRIBLE... but trading up for him might of gotten Shanahan canned 2 years ago.
