Cleared Duke Lacrosse Player Opts To Attend Brown

One of three former Duke lacrosse players cleared of rape charges has decided he will attend Brown University in the fall.

Reade Seligmann says in a statement that he's looking forward to being a student again.

The announcement comes a day after the Blue Devils lost to Johns Hopkins 12-to-11 in the N-C-A-A championship game in Baltimore.

Seligmann's attorney Jim Cooney says his client will play lacrosse at Brown. Cooney says Seligmann earned a three-point-five grade-point-average despite being charged with rape, kidnapping and sexual offense.

Collin Finnerty and Dave Evans were also indicted after a woman told police she was attacked by three men at a team party. Seligmann and Finnerty, both sophomores at the time, were suspended from Duke after the charges were filed.
