In trying to get his client's path clear to the NFL, Terrelle Pyror's lawyer wanted to get confirmation that Pryor couldn't have played for Ohio State in 2011. He got that confirmation and more in a letter from athletic director Gene Smith.
Beyond being suspended for the first five games of the 2011 season, Pyror was deemed ineligible for the whole season because he refused to cooperate with the NCAA and Ohio State investigations.
Smith said "The university also must dissociate you from its athletic program for a period of five years."
While Pyror, cannot have any contact with the football team in any way shape or form, Smith encouraged Pryor to enroll in classes and complete his degree.
Pyror will be trying to enter the NFL via the supplemental draft. No date has yet been set for the supplement draft.
