Perry fully reinstated with football program
Written by Matt Pargoff   

Jim Harbaugh revealed in June that wide receiver Grant Perry had resumed activities with the team after serving a suspension, stating that he could still face added repercussions both within the program and legal system. On Friday evening, Perry was fully reinstated in a statement from Athletic Director Warde Manuel.

Perry pleaded guilty to in June to a felony count of resisting a police officer and misdemeanor count of assault and battery, receiving a 12-month probation sentence last week. Counts of misdemeanor fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct and an alcohol charge were dropped.

Warde Manuel Statement on Perry:

“The University and Michigan Athletic Department have closely followed the legal proceedings involving Grant Perry since October.

“During this time, he has met every institutional expectation. Grant has served multiple team suspensions, missing two games during the 2016 season as well as the Orange Bowl against Florida State. He was suspended from all team activities in the Winter of 2017, including all of spring practice and the team’s trip to Rome. Grant was only recently allowed to participate in summer conditioning prior to the start of fall camp.

“We conducted an athletic department and institutional review following the conclusion of the legal process. Based on that review, we have determined that Grant is reinstated to full participation with the football team.

“In order to maintain his full participation with the team, and in addition to complying with the terms of his probation, Grant must continue to meet additional internal requirements from the university, athletic department and football program.”
