Terrelle Pryor Not Returning For Senior Season

COLUMBUS, Ohio (KDKA/AP) — Terrelle Pryor is not going back to Ohio State for his senior season.

The announcement came through a statement from his attorney.

“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.

Pryor is at the center of an investigation by the NCAA after it was believed he may have accepted more benefits than first reported.

He was already handed a five-game suspension back in December for the upcoming season because he accepted improper benefits from a local tattoo shop owner.

Pryor said he didn’t want to become a distraction to his teammates.

Ohio State’s head football coach Jim Tressel was forced to resign last week.

    Where is all his supporters now? The dude cheated. He lied. And he took advantage of the free education he got as well as his teammates. I actually hope people like him get Injured just enough to end their sports career just to show them what they threw away. What a joke.

  4. Brian says:

    Hopefully this turd will be serving burgers in a couple of years.

  5. John says:

    Coward. Leaving has nothing to do with his teammates. Its all about himself. Always has been, always will be.

    Good. He’s nothing but a cheat. I hope he falls flat on his face. Jeanette has nothing but trash there anyway. OSU can suck a fat one too.
