Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel gave the five suspended football players an ultimatum. Eventhough, the NCAA said that they were eligible to play in the Sugar Bowl, Tressel wanted to test their loyalty to the University, team and fan base.

Before the team left for New Orleans, Tressel told them to make a decision about their future. Go to the NFL and you won’t play in the Sugar Bowl. Stay in 2011 and face the suspensions and they could play in New Orleans.

Coach Tressel announced earlier Thursday in his press conference in New Orleans that the five football players suspended for the first five games of next season will return in 2011.

All five, gave their word to return to the team before Tressel agreed to allow them to play in the January 4 Allstate Sugar Bowl.

Tressel said that the five players, Terrelle Pryor, Dan Herron, DeVier Posey, Mike Adams and Solomon Thomas, were all in agreement that they would staf for the 2011 season. All are eligible to enter the NFL draft had they decided to leave school.

All five players were suspended for the first five games of the 2011 season for selling awards and memorabilia. A sixth player, Jordan Whiting, was suspended for the season opener next season.
