Jeannette's Terrelle Pryor has hired an agent since leaving the Ohio State football team, the Associated Press reports, preparing himself to enter the NFL.â†µ
Pryor's lawyer, Larry James, said Monday that Pryor was in Miami and had signed an agreement with [Drew] Rosenhaus, a high-powered agent who represents some of the biggest names in sports.â†µ
James also said he had formally notified Ohio State that Pryor had an agent, making him ineligible and clearing the way for him to participate in an upcoming supplemental draft.â†µ
Pryor, who will turn 22 next week, came out of Jeannette Senior High School, just east of Pittsburgh, and became Ohio State's quarterback in 2008. He had his best season in 2010, throwing for 2772 yards and 27 touchdowns while rushing for 754 yards and four touchdowns. His college career was derailed, however, as he became involved in the NCAA scandal that currently surrounds Ohio State. He was suspended for five games in 2011 for accepting cash and tattoos from Edward Rife, and there are allegations that he may have driven as many as eight different cars while he was a Buckeye. Pryor announced last week that he would skip his senior season with OSU.â†µ
We'll see whether Pryor will be a quarterback or a wide receiver at the NFL level.
