Junior receiver Grant Perry is officially a part of the Michigan Wolverines again.

University of MI wide receiver Grant Perry received full reinstatement from the Wolverines program Friday to make him eligible for the 2017 college football season. Perry was also suspended throughout the spring and missed the team's trip to Rome.

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. Grant was only recently allowed to participate in summer conditioning prior to the start of fall camp.

Perry, who attended Birmingham Brother Rice, has continued to practice with Michigan's football team, though U-M coach Jim Harbaugh said Perry would not "represent the team in games until" until the conclusion of the legal process.

In a release, Manuel said the university and the athletic department "have closely followed the legal proceedings" involving Perry since October. "Based on that review, we have determined that Grant is reinstated to full participation with the football team". 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. Perry said he "tried to wriggle away" from East Lansing police when they arrived at the scene.

MI suspended Perry for two games immediately after the altercation.

"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".

Perry averaged 14.1 yards per reception last season as a sophomore, catching 13 passes for the Wolverines.
