HS Phenom Pryor Will Pick A School This Week

On the heels of winning a state championship in basketball, Jeannette High School senior Terrelle Pryor said that he would finally make an announcement on which college he would attend next fall.

Pryor, arguably the nation’s No. 1 high school football recruit, made headlines when he declined to make that decision on National Signing Day last February, leaving his finalists, Ohio State, Michigan, Oregon, and Penn State, flapping in the proverbial breeze.

CBSSPORTS.COM says that Pryor will make the announcement within a week. He has narrowed the field to two choices, though he declined to say which two.

“I can’t tell you [which two,]” said Pryor, the only Pennsylvania player to rush for more than 4,000 yards and pass for 4,000 in his career.

Pryor’s 23 points and 8 rebounds helped his team win the Pennsylvania AA state title on Saturday . Oh, and he also won a state title in football this year, too.

Pryor’s father, Craig, wants him to go to Penn State. Terrelle nearly decided on Ohio State last month, but changed his mind. The two-sport star said that the decision process has been a difficult one, especially since he declined to make campus visits during basketball season.

“Getting to know all these college coaches, I mean the relationships with them …” he said, his voice trailing off. “It’s hard to tell them no. That’s how I am. It’s hard to tell them no. Eventually I got to do it.

Pryor does not have to sign until April 1, according to NCAA rules.
