    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Terrelle Pryor's career at Ohio State, which started with so much promise and potential, has come to an abrupt and scandal-ridden end.

    The Ohio State quarterback announced through his attorney on Tuesday that he would not play for the Buckeyes this season.

    "In the best interests of my teammates, I've made the decision to forgo my senior year of football at The Ohio State University," Pryor said in a statement issued by Columbus lawyer Larry James.

    James said entering the next NFL supplemental draft is Pryor's "desire." But James acknowledged labor uncertainty could lead to consideration of the Canadian Football League or working with a personal quarterback coach first.

    James said Pryor told him of the decision within the hour and that Pryor said it was "in the best interest of my teammates."

    The Cleveland Plain Dealer first reported Pryor's announcement.

    Pryor had already been suspended for the first five games of the 2011 season for accepting improper benefits from a Columbus tattoo-parlor owner. The NCAA is looking into all aspects of Ohio State's once-glittering program, from cash and tattoos to players, cars and other potential violations.

    Pryor's announcement comes just eight days after Buckeyes coach Jim Tressel was forced to resign for knowing about the players' improper benefits.

    "He did not want to be a a distraction to his teammates," James said. "This is something he came to consider after much thought."

    Ohio State's athletic director, Gene Smith, quickly issued a statement wishing Pryor the best.

    "We understand Terrelle's decision and wish him well in this next phase of his life," Smith said. "We hope he returns to The Ohio State University one day to finish his degree."

    Luke Fickell, who will serve as Ohio State's interim head coach in place of Tressel this fall, found out about Pryor's decision on Tuesday night.

    "I was notified this evening that Terrelle has decided to pursue a professional career," Fickell said. "I wish him the best in his pursuits."

    Not a surprise at all. I guess the only question is what happens with the supplemental draft as a result of the lockout. I assume someone would be willing to throw out a 5th or whatever for him.

    Tressel and Pryor did nothing wrong.

    I know this because ESPN college football anaylst Chris Speilman said so yesterday.

    He should have left when they initially suspended him.

    Of course he probably got some less than flattering news from NFL talent evaluators.

    I am hearing he would be a 5-6 rounder in the sup draft and he is considering the CFL.

    OVER-RATED, UNDER-ACHIEVER, who is selfish and arrogant! .... A waist of time and a 5-6 round pick. Pryor will end up in prison someday.

    UFL is a possibility also.

    Now there are allegations that Pryor had envolvement with an agent well before he ever went to OSU....

    .... Man, I said it back then, and I'll say it again now..... He's nothin' but a snot-nosed punk....
