Gian Clavell set to return to CSU basketball

Gian Clavell has been cleared by the Colorado State to resume play immediately for the CSU men’s basketball team, the University released in a statement.

Clavell was suspended indefinitely by the University following his arrest on Nov. 9 over a misdemeanor charge of false imprisonment with a domestic violence enhancement involving his ex-girlfriend. The arrest was Clavell’s second in 14 months.

The Puerto Rico native was cleared to begin practicing with the team last weekend, and has now been fully reinstated by the University’s athletic department.

The University released the following statement:

“The University has completed its process of reviewing the incident involving Gian Clavell and his arrest on November 9. In a situation such as this, when a student is involved in the legal process, they also go through an independent university conduct review. With the student conduct review completed by the Student Resolution Center, and Gian remaining in good standing as a student at Colorado State, the Athletic Department has made the decision to reinstate him to full eligibility for competition, effective immediately.”

While the University has completed it’s own investigation, there is still an ongoing legal portion regarding Clavell’s arrest. Because of the ongoing legal investigation, Colorado State has opted to not comment further on the incident.

Clavell played in the opening exhibition game against Regis, when he recorded 13 points and 12 rebounds, but the senior guard has not played in a regulation game since the last time CSU played Northern Colorado on Dec. 13, 2015. Before breaking a bone in his hand, Clavell was averaging 20.8 points and 6.9 rebounds.
