PRYOR PLAYED 'EXCEPTIONALLY WELL' SATURDAY IN GRAY VICTORY


It was quite apparent on Saturday that Ohio State quarterback, Terrelle Pryor, has definitely put in the work this offseason trying to improve as a passer.

The 6-6, 240-pound sophomore whipped the football all over the field with great confidence and authority, during the 2009 Annual Spring Game at Ohio Stadium, leading his Gray squad to a 23-3 victory over the Scarlet.

Pryor was able to read the defense effectively, he was able to use his athleticism to make plays downfield with his arm, and his throwing style wasn't robotic like it was during his freshman season.

"The world saw today that I can throw the football," Pryor stated after Saturday's game.

Well, maybe not the world, but a good part of it. The record crowd (95,722) in Columbus witnessed the Buckeyes "leader" pass for 191 yards (13-of-18) and two touchdowns, including a 44-yard strike down the left sideline to junior receiver, Taurian Washington.

"I think I played exceptionally well, getting better at those little things, footwork, throwing the ball in there and learning the offense." Pryor said.

If Pryor continues to develop as much this summer as he has this winter and spring, the Buckeyes could be in store for remarkable things this fall.
