JEANNETTE, Pa. (AP) -Terrelle Pryor's choice for now is no choice.
Pryor, the Jeannette High School quarterback who is considered the nation's top unsigned high school football recruit, decided at the last minute Wednesday not to commit on national signing day and will delay his decision - a major plus for in-state Penn State.
``I don't have a choice yet,'' Pryor said.
Pryor, the only QB in Pennsylvania history to rush for 4,000 yards and throw for 4,000 in his career, recently narrowed his choices to Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State, with the Buckeyes and Wolverines apparently his top two choice. Ohio State looked to be the favorite, which would be a recruiting coup for coach Jim Tressel a month after losing the BCS national championship game for the second season in a row.
unce his decision at a news conference attended by several hundred reporters.
With a half-dozen satellite TV trucks parked outside the school gym, some from Ohio and Michigan stations, Pryor said he would delay his decision indefinitely.
Pryor's decision to wait is uncommon, as most top players have long since committed, but he doesn't not have to sign until April 1, and other top high school players in the past have waited past signing day to commit.
Family friends said Pryor simply is not ready to make a decision, and they are uncertain when he will make up his mind.
