Terrelle Pryor Can Hoop a Little

It seems like Terrelle Pryor is just as dominant on the hardwood as he is on the gridiron.

On a night when his Jeannette team needed him to survive a 64-54 overtime battle in the WPIAL class AA playoffs, he went off to the tune of 24 points, 24 rebounds, 8 blocked shots and 7 assists.

24/24 with a couple of bounces away from turning that into a quadruple double. Sick. I know he's thought to be purely a football player at the next level, but assuming Michigan, Ohio State and Penn State are his top three choices, every one of those teams could use his services on the basketball court.

He even found the time to work in a little trash-talking with the opposing team's student section. The banter eventually lead to two students being removed from the game by police for what we can only assume was excessive smack talk. RUTS has a little more on the smack talking including the following photo:

Lil’ Tressel

That is pretty funny. But does it do anything for Buckeye psyche that he was jawing it up with these fans and then immediately after the game, he confronted the group? Was that a guy sticking up for his future coach? Here's what he had to say on the episode:

"People kept saying things. I try not to listen to it, but it makes you mad."

Just remember, Terrelle, each and every one of those mouthy punks is a young Nittany Lion fan. They'll soon morph into this.
