I think I read somewhere (or it may have Jadaki saying it) that Pryor wanted to play football AND basketball. Landing at a top program for both was important to him. Michigan basketball doesn't have nearly the upside of OSU basketball.But mainly I am keeping hopes that he will actually come to Columbus. No way do I want to face that guy the next 3 years.

It wasn't me who said it. I think it was from an article Fryer posted. Your right about OSU basketball though
I've posted articles that said it....and maybe said it myself. Anyway...If we're talking Pryor in OSU vs. UM only, OSU definitely has the basketball plus over UM. UM has RR and his offense over OSU. Someone said OSU would adabt to an offense for him, which I am sure is true, but RR has mastered it.While we're talking about him, from yesterday's paper...Pryor on the verge of 2,000 points
Tuesday, January 22, 2008By Mike White, Pittsburgh Post-GazetteJeannette's Terrelle Pryor reached some impressive milestones in football. Now he's approaching one in basketball.Pryor, a senior, needs only 79 points to reach 2,000 for his career. Only 22 other players in the history of the WPIAL have scored 2,000 points.Pryor scored 20 points in a 63-50 victory against Burrell last night. Jeannette has four games in the next six days, so Pryor has an excellent chance at reaching the milestone by next week. He averages 22 points a game.In football, Pryor became the first player in Pennsylvania history to rush for 4,000 yards and pass for 4,000. No WPIAL athlete has ever rushed or passed for 4,000 yards in football and scored 2,000 points in basketball.What do Terrelle Pryor and Gnarls Barkley have in common?
January 22, 2008Tuesday, January 22, 2008From Mike White:The word Terrelle Pryor used today to describe his recruiting is "crazy."College coaches are turning up the heat on the Jeannette High School football star. Media members are calling. Veteran Sports Illustrated writer Jack McCallum was at Jeannette today to talk to Pryor, coaches and townsfolk for an upcoming feature in the magazine.Pitt offensive coordinator Matt Cavanaugh and another Pitt assistant ("I think it was their running backs coach," Pryor said) came to Jeannette this morning to meet with Pryor. Pitt apparently still hasn't given up on Pryor, even though he has repeatedly said he has no interest in attending Pitt."I understand. They're just doing their job," Pryor said.Pryor said he has no plans to make an official visit to Pitt, but he acknowledged he has left open the possibility of making a quick unofficial visit to the school, just to talk with Coach Dave Wannstedt."I don't know if I will or not. I'd basically do it just for my dad," Pryor said. "He likes Pitt. But I'm not going there."After meeting with the Pitt coaches today, Pryor spent some time with McCallum. Then Penn State defensive coordinator Tom Bradley and quarterbacks coach Jay Paterno showed up at Jeannette to talk with Pryor. Joe Paterno might come to Jeannette next week.Penn State is one of five schools Pryor is considering, but the Nittany Lions are an extreme long shot. Pryor visited Michigan this past weekend. He already has been to Ohio State. He said he might go to Oregon in the middle of next week and then make a trip to LSU next weekend.
