Terrelle Pryor:  The next Mike Vick?  Maybe Vince Young?  Or Ronald Curry?

6’6″, 225, sub 4.5 forty yard dash, laser, rocket arm; Terrelle Pryor is supposed to be the next big thing in college football.  Tough to bet against those measurables really, but is it tough to bet against the hype? 

There’s enogh pressure on 18 year old kids as it is. I imagine being the “next Mike Vick” or “next Vince Young”, or even, though in a different sense, the “next Ronald Curry” isn’t easy either.  Of course, Terrelle, notwithstanding all hype and expectations his level of talent generates on its own, didn’t help matters much by waiting til Easter to sign his Letter of Intent, so I’m not saying I feel sorry for him.

Maybe that was part of the plan though.  You have to question the motivations of today’s top recruits now that recruiting coverage is such a huge business, at least relative to years past, but then, as noted, these are 18 year old kids.  Can you blame them?  I mean, I don’t necessarily respect it, but I understand.

    These guys think of themselves as not just athletes but celebrities now a days. Any publicity is good publicity for the young and naive…

    I was impressed how Ronald Curry saved his career by becoming a WR. Being a good QB is tough. It’s only gets tougher at the next level.

    Nothing is guaranteed. These young boys would serve themselves well by not completely buying into the hype, especially if you want to be a RB or QB.

    Hi everybody,
    Terrelle Pryor, the nation’s No. 1 ranked quarterback could be the piece that propels Michigan from a good program to an elite, national-title winning one.

    Young and Pryor both have size.
    And Young and Pryor both proved to have the play making skills to make a good team great and like it very much.I really appreciate all the good information you’ve provided.
