Danny O'Brien Still Considering Transfer From Maryland Football, According To Report

It was first reported on Wednesday afternoon that Maryland Terrapins quarterback Danny O'Brien had met with Terps head coach Randy Edsall to inform Edsall of his intent to transfer from the football program. O'Brien denied this report with on his official Twitter account less than an hour after the initial report surfaced. Eric Prisbell of the Washington Post is now reporting that O'Brien is still seriously considering a transfer and will spend the weekend with his family before coming to a decision.

According to one individual with knowledge of the situation, O'Brien will spend the weekend deciding with his family whether to leave Maryland. If he departs, O'Brien would be the 11th player with eligibility remaining to leave the program for various reasons since Edsall's first season - a disastrous 2-10 campaign - ended in November. In total, O'Brien would be the 23rd player with eligibility remaining to have left the program since Edsall was hired in January 2011.

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.
