MI junior wide receiver Grant Perry has officially been welcomed back to the football program.
MI has reinstated wide receiver Grant Perry, athletic director Warde Manuel announced Friday.
Perry had been participating in the summer conditioning program and fall camp practices but was officially reinstated on Friday.
We conducted an athletic department and institutional review following the conclusion of the legal process.
Athletic director Warde Manuel said in a release that Perry "has met every institutional expectation" since his arrest October 15 in East Lansing, Mich.
Perry is not allowed to consume alcohol during his probation and must stay away from establishments that sell alcohol. "Based on that review, we have determined that Grant is reinstated to full participation with the football team".
Perry was suspended for two regular season games right after the incident occurred, and the Orange Bowl against Florida State after charges were made in December. He had two fourth-degree sexual assault charges and an underage drinking charge dropped after pleading guilty to "resisting or obstructing an officer", which is a felony. He was accused of grabbing a woman's backside and groin while arguing with her and then running from police officers when they arrived outside the bar. He already has been suspended for three games, including the Orange Bowl, and was forced to sit out spring practice and the Wolverines' trip to Rome.
MI suspended Perry for two games immediately after the altercation. Manuel said Perry must abide by the terms of his probation as well as "additional internal requirements" in order to remain a part of the football team moving forward.
Perry, who is from Bloomfield Hills, has 27 career receptions for 311 yards and two touchdowns.
