COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -Terrelle Pryor, the prep quarterback out of Jeannette, Pa., acclaimed as the top football recruit in the nation, got a warm welcome Sunday at Ohio State's men's basketball game.
He sat in the second row and watched the Buckeyes play No. 11 Wisconsin at Value City Arena.
Ohio State's student section chanted, ``We want Pryor'' and ``Terr-elle Pry-or'' as he left his seat at halftime, walking to a nearby room where he was joined by Buckeyes coach Jim Tressel.
Pryor sat opposite the Wisconsin bench with two Buckeyes recruits, linemen Michael Brewster and J.B. Shugarts. Brewster, from Orlando, Fla., and Shugarts, of Klein, Texas, have already enrolled at Ohio State.
Brewster and Shugarts were introduced during a timeout early in the game and received a lengthy standing ovation from a crowd of 19,049.
The veiled message from the fans: ``Imagine what we'd do if YOU came here.''
Pryor, who walked away from reporters, is still mulling his college decision. The 6-foot-6 high school senior has made official visits to Ohio State and Michigan and has expressed interest in Penn State and Oregon.
Ohio State did not recruit a quarterback in the class announced earlier this month. Todd Boeckman is entering his senior season. The Buckeyes also have backups Antonio Henton and Joe Bauserman.
Pryor is the only player in Pennsylvania high school football to both run and pass for more than 4,000 yards in his career.
Scouts have compared him to former University of Texas and current Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young.
