ANN ARBOR, Mich. (WXYZ) -- Michigan has reinstated wide receiver Grant Perry, athletic director Warde Manuel announced Friday.

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.

In a release, Manuel said the university and the athletic department "have closely followed the legal proceedings" involving Perry since October.

"During this time, he has met every institutional expectation," added Manuel. "Grant has served multiple team suspensions, missing two games during the 2016 season as well as the Orange Bowl against Florida State. He was suspended from all team activities in the Winter of 2017, including all of spring practice and the team’s trip to Rome. Grant was only recently allowed to participate in summer conditioning prior to the start of fall camp."

Manuel says that in addition to following the terms of his probation, Perry must "continue to meet additional internal requirements from the university, athletic department and football program."
