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

On Friday, the University of MI announced that junior wide receiver Grant Perry has been fully reinstated to the football team after some legal issues following an incident that took place in East Lansing last fall.

In June, Perry pleaded guilty to resisting a police officer and misdemeanor assault and battery in connection with a confrontation outside an East Lansing bar.

We conducted an athletic department and institutional review following the conclusion of the legal process.

Perry had been participating in the summer conditioning program and fall camp practices but was officially reinstated on Friday. Perry was also suspended throughout the spring and missed the team's trip to Rome. "Based on that review, we have determined that Grant is reinstated to full participation with the football team".

Manuel said in the release that Perry served "multiple team suspensions, including two games during the 2016 season as well as the Orange Bowl against Florida State".

The announcement came after Perry's felony charges were dropped and he was placed on a 1-year probation.

Perry is not allowed to consume alcohol during his probation and must stay away from establishments that sell alcohol. Now that Perry is reinstated, he'll need to meet the terms of his probation - no alcohol or drugs - and also abide by "additional internal requirements" from MI. 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.

MI suspended him for two games immediately after the arrest before allowing him to play in the final four games of the regular season. He caught 13 passes for 183 yards and a touchdown last season.
