Kieran HaweAnalyst IMarch 19, 2008

Well the wait is finally over for schools trying to recruit Terrelle Pryor. The much sought-after quarterback recruit from Pennsylvania announced today his decision to play for the Ohio State Buckeyes.

At his news conference Pryor, who is also a basketball star at Jeannette Senior High School near Pittsburgh, unzipped his windbreaker to reveal a Ohio State t-shirt and put on a Buckeyes hat. Michigan and Oregon were both in the running but fell short for various reasons. Pryor never considered nearby Penn State. Pryor will come to Ohio State as a back-up to current starting quarterback, and senior, Todd Boeckman.

Pryor is the only player in Pennsylvania history to both rush and pass for at least 4,000 yards - he also has 2,285 career basketball points. Below are some video highlights of Terrelle Pryor - enjoy and get ready to watch him be one of the top talents in College Football in a couple years.
