CHICAGO (WSCR) In their last game of the 2010 season, Terrelle Pryor led the Ohio State Buckeyes to a 31-26 win in the Sugar Bowl. And as each day passes, and more reports about Pryor surface, it looks like that could prove to be his final college game.
“I don’t think he’s ever playing college football again,” Pete Fiutak, of College Football News, said on the Danny Mac Show. “There’s no way he’s going to be a Buckeye again.”

In the wake of head coach Jim Tressel’s resignation, a result of him withholding information from the university and lying to NCAA investigators, the spotlight on Pryor and the improper benefits he may have received grows larger.
So with his collegiate career likely behind him, Pryor could turn to the NFL sooner than he had anticipated. But his jump to the pro-game might not be all that easy.
“He’s maybe a third to fourth round flier of a pick, at best,” Fiutak said. “The killer for him was losing those five games where he would get time to continue to hone his craft as far as being a pure passer. But he’s not it, he’s not an NFL quarterback right now, he’s got a lot of the skills and a lot of the tools, but he just did not progress that way.”
