JEANNETTE, Pa. — Even on the stage of his high school's auditorium, Jeannette quarterback Terrelle Pryor couldn't get away from one of the nastiest rivalries in sports.
In front of the stage and pulled back to the side were a pair of Ohio State-red curtains. Behind him were a set of curtains that were close to Michigan's blue. While those are Jeannette's school colors, they also symbolized Pryor's toughest decision.

His father, Craig, had hoped that he would attend nearby Penn State, also a Big Ten school. His quarterbacks coach at Jeannette, Roy Hall, thought that Ohio State should be his choice. His football coach, Ray Reitz, had shown a preference for Michigan, as did Pryor's mentor, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Charlie Batch. Pryor's grandmother, Marlene Arnold, and Hall's brother Larry were simply praying for the decision.

In the end, though, it was the 6-6, 235-pound Pryor's choice. More than a month after deciding not to decide on National Signing Day, he put on an Ohio State hat and a Buckeyes T-shirt and proudly, if incorrectly, announced he would go to "The University of Ohio State."

I have seen the kid play many times on the field and on the court.  He will be a great college player, but I am one of the skeptics as to his potential success in the NFL.

Pryor picked OSU because they will also let him play basketball.  Sonny Vaccaro has him in the top 50 of national basketball recruits.

I can honestly say that I am not looking forward to UM playing a non-pro oriented offense even though it's what they need.  Their players almost always made really solid pros since they were ideal for a pro-style system.  This is just something I'm not used to, and watching a bunch of "athletes" just isn't UM.

It would have been nice to have Pryor if he's as good as the hype, but they supposedly got a pretty good QB before this for the system so we'll see.
