Storm Klein Hopes To Clear Name, Return To Buckeyes' Defense

Head coach Urban Meyer wasted little time dismissing linebacker Storm Klein from the Ohio State Buckeyes football team after Klein was arrested and charged with domestic violence and assault on Friday after an incident with his ex-girlfriend.

Meyer may be willing to re-evaluate Klein's status with the team if the charges change which is exactly what Klein's lawyer expects to happen.

On Monday, Klein's attorney, Larry James, worked to turn that thin ray of hope into a bright future for his client, telling a local television station, "I am pleased that the door remains open to return to the team and I believe it will work out in Storm's favor." To the local paper of record, the Columbus Dispatch, James was more emphatic: "I believe when this is said and done, this will be resolved in Storm's favor, with an exclamation mark."

If nothing is settled out of court to clear Klein's charge, his next court hearing is scheduled for July 26th.
