Various Buckeye message boards have lit up over the course of the past 24 hours with news that The Yearned-For One will be taking an unofficial visit to Ohio State for the Wisconsin basketball game on Sunday.
This is completely unconfirmed at this time, but Monday's Mike Farrell piece for Rivals.com did mention that Pryor didn't get to see everything that he wanted to in Columbus:
"I've seen everything at Michigan, but I didn't get to see everything at Ohio State. I am still in touch with all the Ohio State commitments I've become friends with, but they're being really cool about it, not pressuring me."
If there's any truth to this, you have to feel even better about the Buckeyes' chances to land him. Taking time out of his basketball schedule to make a 200 mile Sunday drive to a school he's already seen is saying a lot.
Then again, one half of watching the 2008 basketball team could be enough to discourage anyone from wanting to attend Ohio State. Or worse yet, he could experience that raucous home court hoops advantage first-hand and be completely blow away by the silence and lack of enthusiasm. Perhaps they could pipe in sounds from the Horseshoe last fall?
Feel free to light up the comments if you have any further news on this.
