Terrelle Pryor's extra-long recruitment created a buzz. How he would be used for Ohio State created a buzz. And his first action as a college player created a buzz, as well.

Pryor, a 6-foot-6, 235-pounder from Jeannette, Pa., was the nation's No. 1 recruit. His first action came in the first quarter, on the third series, of Ohio State's season-opening 43-0 victory against overmatched Youngstown State.

Pryor was 4-for-6 for 35 yards through the air and also carried nine times for 52 yards and a touchdown.

"I wanted to get out there so bad to see how fun it is," Pryor said. "I was calm coming into the game, but as soon as I got in (there), when everyone was cheering, I was like, 'Aw, man.' "

Pryor's touchdown came on an 18-yard run on a designed quarterback draw in the fourth quarter. It gave the Buckeyes a 40-0 lead.

"I thought he did a good job," Ohio State coach Jim Tressel said. "He's worked hard. He's studied hard to learn what we do."
