Max Garcia Transfer: Maryland Lineman Chooses Florida, According To Report

Former Maryland Terrapins offensive lineman Max Garcia will transfer to Florida, according to Keith Niebuhr of Rivals.com:

In addition to the Gators, the 6-foot-4, 310-pounder had narrowed his list to the Georgia Bulldogs, Ole Miss Rebels, Southern Cal Trojans and Wisconsin Badgers, where his former teammate, quarterback Danny O'Brien, recently transferred. It was rumored Georgia was the early front-runner for Garcia, as the lineman is from the Peach State.

Danny O'Brien To Transfer To Wisconsin

Former Maryland quarterback Danny O'Brien will transfer to the University of Wisconsin. O'Brien picked the Badgers over Penn State and Ole Miss. The news was first reported by Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel Badgers Blog and later confirmed by the university in a statement.

O'Brien seemed to have been blown away by his visit to the Wisconsin campus and really connected with Badgers head coach Bert Bielema and new offensive coordinator Matt Canada. A transfer like this helps the Badgers as they currently only have two healthy quarterbacks on their roster during spring practice.

Because O'Brien is on track to graduate early from the University of Maryland, he will be eligible to play right away for the Badgers and has two years of eligibility remaining. This is not the first time Wisconsin has benefited from this rule, last year quarterback Russell Wilson transferred to the Badgers and played right away, leading the Badgers to a Big 10 championship and a trip to the Rose Bowl.

Danny O'Brien Transfers: Ole Miss, Arizona and USF Interested, According To Report

Danny O'Brien wants out of the Maryland football program, and it doesn't seem like he will have an issue on finding a school that is interested in giving him a shot. According to a tweet by Terrapins Insider, there are many suitors out there for O'Brien's services.

O'Brien, the former ACC Rookie of the Year, decided Monday that he would like to transfer from Maryland to another program. However, O'Brien will not be allowed to transfer to schools that are former ACC opponents, Vanderbilt, West Virginia or Temple.

Per an earlier report, O'Brien wanted to transfer to Vanderbilt but was also considering Stanford.

Danny O'Brien Decision To Possibly Come Sometime Next Week

The waiting game on the transfer status of Maryland Terrapins quarterback Danny O'Brien continues, and a blog post from the Baltimore Sun suggest fans shouldn't expect a decision to come anytime in the very near future.

I'm told to expect some news by early next week," wrote Jeff Barker of the Baltimore Sun.

On Wednesday, it was reported that O'Brien was meeting with Maryland head coach Randy Edsall to discuss him leaving College Park. However, a tweet from O'Brien just an hour after the news broke refuted the claims of a transfer, but an individual with knowledge of situation said that O'Brien was going to take the weekend to discuss all options with his family.

O'Brien, a redshirt sophomore, is eligible to graduate this spring, which would enable him to transfer to another FBS school without sitting out a year. However, it is not clear whether O'Brien will actually graduate early.
