Terrelle Pryor opts for the NFL amidst scandal


Ohio State Buckeye QB Terrelle Pryor opted out of his senior year to go straight to the NFL. This comes amidst scandal, and the NCAA bearing down on the Buckeyes. Many of the players were caught up when they were trading Buckeye memorabilia for tats. Tressel was forced to resign, and Pryor received a five-game suspension for this upcoming season. Pryor was also seen driving fancy cars around the campus. If he entered the draft on time, he would have been a top-25 first-round pick most likely. Pryor has a strong skill set, check out his stats. Read the statement he released, courtesy espn:

“In the best interests of my teammates, I’ve made the decision to forgo my senior year of football at The Ohio State University,” Pryor said in a statement issued by Columbus lawyer Larry James.
