Prep QB picks Ohio State

March 20, 2008


— Highly regarded prep quarterback Terrelle Pryor is headed to Ohio State.

The two-sports star announced his decision Wednesday at Jeannette High School, about 25 miles east of Pittsburgh, where he had one of the greatest prep careers in Pennsylvania history.

Flanked by his parents, brother, sister and other supporters, the 6-foot-6 Pryor wasted no time with his decision: "If everyone's here," he said, "University of Ohio State."

He then unzipped his windbreaker to reveal an Ohio State T-shirt and donned an OSU hat.

Pryor picked Ohio State over Michigan, Penn State and Oregon.

Pryor said Oregon was too far away and Penn State too rural. He said he liked Michigan and new coach Rich Rodriguez, but felt that he had a better shot at making it to the NFL by going to Ohio State.

Good grief - the "University of Ohio State?" This guy, purportedly one of the most talented recruits ever, can't decide among Michigan, Penn State, Oregon and Ohio State, and when he finally announces his decision he doesn't even know the proper name of the University to which he has committed? Is there a loyal Buckeye anywhere who wouldn't cringe at this? Is this not the entire problem with big-money college athletics in a nutshell?
