Ohio State made a historic QB hype trailer that conveniently left out Terrelle Pryor
Apparently Terrelle Pryor wasn’t one of the great Ohio State quarterbacks.
Well, at least he wasn’t worthy of being included in an official Ohio State video that touted the program’s historic line of quarterbacks.
Instead, Kirk Herbstreit (team captain), made the cut:

Pryor was obviously at the center of the tattoogate scandal, which ultimately forced him into withdraw from the university and enter the 2011 NFL supplemental draft.
Still, his on-the-field accomplishments were certainly worthy of being included among the Buckeye greats. The 2010 Rose Bowl MVP finished his OSU career with 74 total touchdowns, 8,341 total yards and was runner-up for B1G Player of the Year in 2010.
Pryor has since of course had a second life in the NFL as a receiver. Coming off his best season to date as the Cleveland Browns’ No. 1 wideout, Pryor is now regarded as one of the league’s up-and-coming wideouts.
But Ohio State’s omission of Pryor is more evidence that while the state of Ohio forgave him, the university isn’t quite ready to honor his accomplishments just yet.
Meanwhile, Art Schlicter, who battled a severe gambling addiction and committed an estimated 20-plus felonies, was still allowed to be part of the OSU hype trailer.
Perhaps more time will heal the wound Pryor left.
