Pryor Still Thinking
There seem to be several different schools of thought on the situation with star recruit Terrelle Pryor. By delaying his decision there is no doubt that it is giving PSU a shot at reeling him in but if you watch this video he doesn't seem very enthusiastic about any of the schools he is talking about and the final question about the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry would make you think he wants to be part of that rivalry.
This reminds me a lot of the situation with Vidal Hazelton just a few years ago. Vidal's father strongly wanted him to consider PSU to the point that he wasn't ready to sign his letter of intent to USC as a way to force his son to pick PSU. Pryor's father is strongly pushing him to reconsider the Nittany Lions which in most cases gets PSU fans pumped up and hopeful, but often leads to a recruit wanting to rebel against their parent and go somewhere else.
At this point I still feel like Pryor is leaning towards Ohio State but is going to give the legendary coach and in-state program a courtesy visit and get his father off his back. What we can hope for is that by simply making this official visit he is taken in by Dear Old State the way that most of us were and he realizes that it would be a great place to play and live.
We shall see what happens over the next few weeks. Hopefully we will all be out buying #11 PSU jerseys.
