Ohio State football star Maurice Clarett had it all, leading the Buckeyes to the national football championship in 2002.

But after being dismissed from school and falling into some bad life choices, Clarett eventually landed in prison for aggravated robbery and carrying a concealed weapon. In the walls of his confinement, though, he found a new purpose: to help other athletes avoid the same mistakes he made. 

Today on All Sides, former Ohio State football star Maurice Clarett discusses his new book and what he learned in his life after football.
