Senior linebacker Storm Klein has been re-instated at Ohio State after recently requesting to return to the team, as Tim May of the Columbus Dispatch reports. According to May, Klein will be allowed to return to the Buckeyes' football program, "barring a late complication."
In July, new Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer dismissed Klein from the Ohio State football team just one day after his arrest on charges of domestic violence and assault. The linebacker has since pleaded down to misdemeanor disorderly conduct, though, being given a sentence of 18 months probation.
With the developments in the justice system, it appears that Meyer has re-considered his stance on Klein's status with the team. After appearing in 38 games, including ten starts, during his first three years with Ohio State, he'll likely be competing with Curtis Grant for playing time this fall.
