This weekend, the Philadelphia Eagles travel to Oakland to take on the Raiders. Besides pitting two of the most ferocious fan bases in sports against each other, the game will also feature two famous Pennsylvania high school stars. Both Eagle LeSean McCoy and Terrelle Pryor are PA kids (their high schools are a little less than three hours apart), and today McCoy was asked if the two ever knew each other from way back. His response was gold: LeSean McCoy with line of day on Terrelle Pryor: “Yeah, I know him. I tried to recruit him to #Pitt. But we couldn’t afford him.” #OhioState — Matt Lombardo (@MattLombardo975) October 30, 2013 LeSean tried to recruit Pryor to Pitt. Said he couldn’t afford it. Immediately then said he was kidding. — Jimmy Kempski (@JimmyKempski) October 30, 2013 Of course, Pryor was at Ohio State during the infamous tattoo scandal — he himself said he “was kicked out of school” because of it. McCoy was just giving Pryor a hard time about OSU’s recent reputation and reiterated that it was a joke. Later, the media told Pryor of McCoy’s comment, but he just brushed it off: Pryor didn’t answer the question when asked if LeSean McCoy recruited him to Pitt. Gave some strange answer about McCoy being a great back. — Bob Grotz (@BobGrotz) October 30, 2013 It looks like Pryor is still having a hard time escaping that Ohio State past.
