Terrelle Pryor won't return to Ohio State

June 7, 2011 |  3:48 pm

Fabforum Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor won't return for his senior season with the Buckeyes and will probably make himself available for an NFL supplemental draft, his attorney, Larry James, said Tuesday.

Pryor had already been suspended for the first five games of the 2011 season for accepting improper benefits from a Columbus tattoo-parlor owner. The NCAA is looking into all aspects of Ohio State's program, including potential violations involving players receiving cash and cars.

Pryor's announcement comes just eight days after Buckeyes Coach Jim Tressel was forced to resign for knowing about the players' improper benefits.
