Terrelle Pryor Issues Apology But Is It Too Late

When Terrelle Pryor hired super agent Drew Rosenhaus it was only a matter of time until we heard from Terrelle Pryor. Rosenhaus knows how to work the media and letting Pryor give a brief apology starts the process to getting his client back on track. Here is some of what Pryor said in his short apology.

“I say sorry to all the Buckeye nation and all the Buckeye fans across the country,” Pryor said. “I never meant to hurt anybody directly or indirectly with my conduct off the field and I am truly sorry.”

“In terms of coach Jim Tressel, a special shoutout,” Pryor said. “I’m sorry for what all went down and I apologize with all my heart. I love you just like a father. You taught me a lot and I apologize for putting you in a situation and taking you out of a job and place that you loved to be. I regret the fact that you’re not there any more and I regret the fact that I’m not there any more.”

Typical apology from a guy who made mistakes. I am sure Drew Rosenhaus crafted for him. No matter who wrote it the damage has been done to the Buckeyes program. It will be interesting to see how well Pryor performs at the next level. I think he will find it much tougher than he ever imagined.
