Tyrelle Pryor may have come across tough times in the NFL, with the onetime uber-recruit attempting to transition to life as a wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns. That means that his quarterbacking days are behind him, but that doesn’t mean that Pryor isn’t still inspiring today’s prospects with his past performances.
On Tuesday, Pryor tweeted out a photo displaying his collection of game-worn jerseys from his time as an Ohio State Buckeye. A day later, an Ohio State quarterback commit, Danny Clark, cited Pryor as the reason why he first became a quarterback, then offered up a more lasting honorarium.
Note that Clark didn’t just commit to wearing the number 2 jersey for Archbishop Hoban in the forthcoming 2015 season; he’s also insisting that he’ll wearing number 2 at Ohio State when he eventually arrives there in 2017.
Clark has turned heads as a true pro-style quarterback in Massilon during his first two high school seasons. Now he’ll move forward with added inspiration and a new number, thanks to a player who many feel may be on his last professional leg.
