JEANNETTE, Pa. (AP) Terrelle Pryor’s godfather and legal guardian believes the embattled quarterback will finish his career at Ohio State.
Willie Burns said he spoke with Pryor two days ago. While they did not discuss specifics about Pryor’s football future, Burns said Friday he doesn’t think the quarterback will leave for the NFL until after his senior season.
Pryor has been suspended for the Buckeyes’ first five games in 2011. He is also under NCAA investigation for other potential violations.
The 63-year-old Burns says Pryor will only turn pro “if somebody pressures his butt bad.” Pryor lived with Burns while he was in high school.
Ohio State coach Jim Tressel resigned on Monday amid mounting evidence of widespread problems with the football program.
