One of the weirdest recruitments in Michigan football history finally will come to an end tomorrow as quarterback Terrelle Pryor is set to announce his decision.
Pryor, star quarterback at Jeannette High School, plans to announce his college decision at noon Wednesday at the school’s auditorium.
Pryor led Jeannette to the PIAA Class AA basketball championship Saturday at Penn State, and said after the game that he had narrowed his college choices to two. But he wouldn’t say what two. Sources said Tuesday the final two are Ohio State and Michigan.
Earlier this week I said that I believed the final two schools were Ohio State and Penn State, but it does look like PSU is out of it. Then again, it looks like Michigan is as well. I know Pryor claimed he was down to two schools, but there is no way he doesn’t pick OSU. I would be beyond stunned if his choice was anything different.
I did have hope that Michigan would be able to pull off the upset in Pryor’s recruitment back in January, but around signing day – even though he didn’t announce – I came to the realization that all signs pointed to Ohio State. In the end, I think Rich Rodriguez and U-M did do a great job of recruiting him, but they were just too late to the party. By the time Rodriguez was at Michigan and able to recruit him there, Pryor had really been a Buckeye unofficially already.
I’ll have a story up tomorrow after noon once he announces (for OSU).
