I’m so over Terrelle Pryor.
It was less than two hours until the star high school quarterback let the world know his college choice was Ohio State, and Mr. Pryor was nowhere to be found.
He did not show up for classes yesterday morning at Jeannette High School. Athletic director Bob Murphy couldn’t get him on the phone. Guidance counselor Rick Klimchock was starting to get nervous as members of the media were arriving for a noon news conference.
Never mind wanting to know where Mr. Pryor was going to college. Jeannette officials simply wanted to know where he was. Forty-two days earlier, Mr. Pryor called a news conference — to announce he hadn’t made a college decision.
“Not again,” Mr. Klimchock muttered yesterday morning.
Mr. Pryor eventually arrived at school, an hour before the news conference. But he was still being coy. Fifteen minutes before the announcement, Jeannette football coach Ray Reitz emerged from a meeting with Mr. Pryor and said, “He’s still not telling us yet.”
Mr. Pryor eventually meandered down two hallways to the auditorium.
And you thought PittGirl had an ego the size of 15222?
“It’s the University of Ohio State,” Mr. Pryor said.
The University of Ohio State? Is that near the College of Cincinnati? Or maybe it’s closer to The Dayton State University of Columbus?
Here’s hoping he humbles himself right quick before someone else does it for him. Maybe he needs to hang out with Sidney Crosby for a while so that Sid can smack some humility into Terrelle’s fight-mongering, giant diamond-wearing head.
