Default Re: Terrelle Pryor going to Ohio state

I wouldn't count out Penn State...

Mr. Pryor said Penn State assistant coaches Tom Bradley and Jay Paterno have dealt more with his parents than other schools' coaches and that his father feels a trust with Penn State's coaches that he doesn't feel with other schools. "My dad loves [Mr. Bradley]," he said with a laugh.

"Penn State has done a lot," he continued. "They showed up a lot more. They recruited me a lot more. They've sent pages upon pages of handwritten letters."

In the fall, Mr. Pryor questioned Penn State's offensive style. Last week, Penn State coach Joe Paterno, Mr. Bradley and Jay Paterno all visited with Mr. Pryor at Jeannette, and with his parents.

"I just didn't know about their offense because I never had a meeting with their coach," Mr. Pryor said. "I didn't know what they were about. I thought it was just a power offense. It's not."
