Buckeyes' Pryor eyes return as senior

Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor said yesterday that he expects to return for his senior season.

"I'm a Buckeye until I break all the records," he said during preparations for the eighth-ranked Buckeyes' showdown tomorrow against Penn State.

The junior said he had no intention - at least right now - of jumping into the NFL draft.

"I feel like I want to get my degree and finish off strong and maybe have a better season next year with no losses," he said. "I love being here and I need to develop more knowledge as a human being and not worry about money and stuff like that.

"I want to get my degree, so I can finish that up. I want to have a legacy here and maybe someday get my jersey hung up. That's one of my goals here as well. I think I just have to develop my brain, develop my mind."
