Terrelle Pryor, the No. 1 high school football senior in the nation according to most recruiting Web sites, told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he "probably" would make an official visit to Penn State the weekend of Jan. 18. The Jeannette High quarterback periodically supplies the newspaper with a diary as he nears his college decision. Pryor said he would visit Michigan the weekend of Feb. 1, just days before National Signing Day, Feb. 6. Pryor also wrote that a trip to Florida was possible.

It's two-minute drill time, as Penn State pursues a few undecided recruits, hoping to improve what is considered a mediocre 2008 recruiting class. Today is national signing day, the first day high school football seniors can sign binding letters of intent, and the Nittany Lions are expected to receive at least 15 signatures. Still, three recruits who have Penn State on their lists have yet to commit, even if Joe Paterno's Lions are likely the underdogs. The most prominent is Terrelle Pryor, a 6-foot-6, 235-pound quarterback from Jeannette High, just outside Pittsburgh.

Bob Murphy couldn't stay off the phone. During a 45-minute span yesterday, Murphy, Jeannette High's athletic director, was trying to talk to a reporter in his office. Instead, he spent the entire time picking up his phone. In every instance, the caller wanted an update on Terrelle Pryor, Jeannette's all-everything quarterback. Everyone wanted to know: Where is Pryor going to college? Will he definitely sign a national letter of intent today? If so, who will be able to attend the signing?

Lights. Cameras. No action! Jeannette High's all-everything quarterback, Terrelle Pryor, strolled to the portable stage in his school's gymnasium a little before noon yesterday, with his mother, Thomasina; his coach, Ray Reitz; and mentor and Pittsburgh Steelers backup quarterback Charlie Batch at his side. Over the next eight minutes, two rows of anxious reporters and television cameras waited as Pryor and his contingent traded the occasional whisper in an otherwise silent gymnasium.

The Terrelle Pryor show came to Villanova last night, and it had almost nothing to do with football. But with the top-ranked high school quarterback nearing his college decision, almost everything everyone wants from Pryor has to do with football. The problem with that was evident last night at the Pavilion, where Pryor and his teammates faced Chester in the PrimeTime Shootout. Yes, the Jeannette (Pa.) High School senior was in town because of basketball, a sport he plays extremely well - it's just not the one that everyone believes he'll play someday as a pro. Football is his ticket, and with less than a week until national signing day and Pryor still undecided, his every move has been tracked with ferocity - by the colleges, the media and the fans.

After leading his team to the Pennsylvania Class AA football state title, Terrelle Pryor tried to navigate his way through a bevy of well-wishers at HersheyPark Stadium. He didn't get very far. Following his five-touchdown performance in Jeannette High's 49-21 win over Dunmore, the star quarterback was in high demand. Some sought out his autograph. Others wanted hugs. And a few just longed for an up-close glimpse of the 6-foot-6, 235-pound sensation. Deep down inside, they all wondered what college coaches and recruiting analysts are wondering: Where will he end up in college?

Tomorrow is T-day. Terrelle Pryor, the nation's top-ranked football recruit, will announce his college decision at noon during a news conference at Jeannette High in Westmoreland County, Pa. Yesterday, the 6-foot-6, 235-pound quarterback pared his list of schools to three after eliminating Oregon: Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State. Pryor had considered pushing back his decision so he could make official visits to Oregon and Penn State. He said yesterday, however, that the Ducks were out and that he would settle for the many unofficial visits he had made to State College.

The Eagles worked out free-agent quarterbacks Terrelle Pryor and Thad Lewis last week, an NFL source said. Pryor, who spent his first three NFL seasons with the Raiders, was traded to the Seahawks in April and was released in August. The 6-foot-4, 233-pounder wants to continue to play quarterback, but he could have a better chance to land with a team as a wide receiver. The Eagles also worked out the 6-2, 220-pound Lewis, who has four seasons of NFL experience as a backup, in August.

Connecticut swept the men's and women's team titles yesterday at the Big East Indoor Track and Field Championships in New York. Villanova's Bobby Curtis won the 3,000 meters in 8:02.91, earning an NCAA provisional mark. Curtis anchored the distance med-ley relay team that set a meet record of 9 minutes, 32.89 seconds. Also, Villanova had a record-setting performance of 7:26.24 in the 4x800 relay. The team of Michael Kerrigan, Carl MacKenzie, Mark Korich and Sean Tully beat the previous mark of 7:26.

There was one good thing that came out of yesterday's visit that legendary Penn State coach Joe Paterno made to Jeannette High School to meet Terrelle Pryor: The Nittany Lions are not completely out of the picture in the recruiting war for the gifted, 6-6, 225-pound senior quarterback. Penn State is in the mix for Pryor - rated the nation's top recruit by several scouting services - along with Michigan, Ohio State and Oregon. Paterno made the trek to Jeannette, a Pittsburgh suburb, with his son, Jay, Penn State's quarterbacks coach, and Nittany Lions defensive coordinator Tom Bradley.

IT IS ONE of the mandatory questions for any coach, player or sports executive returning to this place, like "Geno's or Pat's?" or even where they were for those rarest of events, a victory parade. "Did you ever boo?" I asked John DeFilippo at the end of an interview the other day, forgetting for a second who he was, and more important, who his father was. "Never," he said, the smile disappearing from his face. "Never. Ever. Here's why: My dad was in it. My dad was even a coach when I was younger.

EARL WOLFF can't make Eagles fans forget that the franchise passed on All-Pro safety Earl Thomas in the draft 3 years ago. Can't make them forget that it did draft Jaiquawn Jarrett a year later either. What the rookie safety is doing, though, is helping the Eagles' fast-improving defense keep people out of the end zone. After a rocky start in which it gave up 126 points and 1,787 yards in their first four games, defensive coordinator Bill Davis' unit has held five straight opponents to 21 points or less.

OAKLAND - Zach Ertz was going to score a touchdown sooner or later, everybody sees the second-round rookie tight end's talent. It just happened to come in his ninth NFL game, with more than 20 friends and family watching from the O.co Coliseum stands, about a 20-minute drive from where Ertz grew up in Danville, Calif., and less than an hour from where he played in college, at Stanford. "This is the first time I've been back in the Bay [Area] since I left for camp in July, so it was a lot of fun to be out there . . . Scoring here was really special," said Ertz, whose 15-yarder after a Nick Foles scramble might have been a pivotal moment in yesterday's 49-20 Eagles victory, if there can be such a thing in a blowout.

Maybe it was returning punts once again. DeSean Jackson was electrifying against the Raiders, catching five passes for 150 yards and one touchdown and returning three punts for 13 yards. It looked like Jackson may have got his punt return job back for good. Damaris Johnson was active and also had his kick return duties yanked. He was back to return a fourth quarter punt. On Jackson's first return, he meandered his way through the Raiders cover team for 35 yards. A personal foul penalty on the receiver, because he grabbed the punter by the face mask, brought the return back 15 yards.

OAKLAND, Calif. - Terrelle Pryor does not like to be called a running quarterback. On Sunday afternoon, however, the Eagles defense made sure that label stuck. The Eagles kept the Oakland QB on the run throughout their 49-20 victory over the Raiders at the O.co Coliseum. They forced the pocket to collapse up front, sending Pryor scrambling to avoid being sacked. They blanketed the Raiders receivers in the secondary, taking away his downfield options and forcing Pryor to do much of Oakland's legwork.

Opposing defenses have attempted various schemes to combat Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor, a dual threat who is among the top 20 rushers in the NFL through eight weeks. Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis said some teams are using a "spy technique," sometimes with defensive ends or defensive backs. Pryor said he has seen safeties creeping toward the line to shadow him when he roams. The Eagles could use a safety in this role or avoid the technique altogether when they visit Oakland on Sunday.

CHIP KELLY spoke yesterday of a rotation replacing nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga, with Sopoaga traded to the Patriots. Two main beneficiaries would seem to be Bennie Logan and Damion Square. Logan, the third-round rookie from LSU, is now listed on the depth chart as the nose-tackle starter. Square, the undrafted rookie from Alabama, hasn't been active since Week 2 but will be now, Kelly indicated. Logan also plays defensive end, so moving him inside creates more reps for DEs such as Clifton Geathers, who played well in a 13-snap appearance against the Giants on Sunday, Kelly said.

The Eagles play the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, and for the first time in his fledgling NFL career, Chip Kelly finally will coach a game that features a quarterback who would be ideal for orchestrating a read-option offense. Michael Vick's frame is too frail for the pounding that a mobile quarterback must withstand, and both Nick Foles and Matt Barkley run as if Steve Sabol had trained one of his slo-mo cameras on them and John Facenda were narrating. But the Raiders' Terrelle Pryor is 6-foot-4 and 233 pounds, and he has completed 63 percent of his passes and rushed for 391 yards this season, including a 93-yard touchdown - another member of this generation of quarterbacks who have the size and speed to destroy opposing defenses with their feet and their arms.

Let's just go ahead and name the NFL quarterback tough-guy award for Peyton Manning and make him the emeritus winner. It's not enough that the guy came back from what looked like career-ending spinal fusion surgery, he's been playing on not one, but two sprained ankles. Manning sprained the ankles against Jacksonville on Oct. 13, then aggravated the injury during last Sunday's loss to Indianapolis when Colts linebacker Robert Mathis sacked him. Never mind the spinal fusion, most would be propped up in front of the TV with two bum ankles.
