College Football Recruiting: Terelle Pryor Makes His Decision

Russell IvanacSenior Analyst IMarch 19, 2008

Roughly six weeks after the “National Signing Day,” No. 1 quarterback recruit Terrelle Pryor has made his decision.


He’s going to be a Buckeye.


In a press conference on Wednesday, Pryor announced his decision to attend Ohio State University. He called Ohio State Coach Jim Tressel shortly before he announced his decision.


Pryor’s decision was delayed for this long because he “didn’t want it to interfere with basketball.”


It is understandable that he would want to focus on his team’s playoff run, but you can’t tell me that part of it wasn’t getting as much hype and publicity as he can possible get for himself.


Pryor narrowed his decision down to four schools as most everyone knows (Oregon, Ohio State, Michigan, and Penn State), but it truly came down to deciding between bitter rivals Ohio State and Michigan.


The QB has yet to put on a Buckeye jersey and he has already helped fuel an already intense rivalry between the two schools even further. His time in college will forever be linked to this moment and his decision. 


Only time will tell if it was the right one.
