Michigan WR returns to team while facing trial for criminal sexual conduct

Michigan WR Grant Perry will return to the program even while he faces charges on criminal sexual conduct.

It was just a few short months ago that the Michigan football program suspended wide receiver Grant Perry after he was charged with criminal sexual conduct and assaulting a police officer.

Perry was originally suspended for two games last season while charges were pending. Once charged, he was jettisoned from the football team immediately.

It now looks like the Wolverines and head coach Jim Harbaugh are welcoming Perry with a trial scheduled on the charges.

“Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh confirmed the news Friday after saying Perry would be one of the receivers in the mix this fall,” the Detroit Free Press reported.

This will obviously lead to questions regarding the priorities of the football program in Ann Arbor.

Perry, a three-star recruit out of Bloomfield Hills in Michigan back in 2015, recorded 13 receptions for 183 yards and a touchdown last season.

He’s set to face trial on these charges in July.
