Danny O'Brien Transfers: Former Maryland QB Releases Statement On His Decision To Leave

From Washington Post Terrapins insider Eric Prisbell, now-former Maryland quarterback Danny O'Brien released a statement regarding his decision to leave the Maryland program.

After careful thought, contemplation, prayer, and consultation with my family, we have come to a consensus that it is in my best interest to continue my educational and athletic endeavors elsewhere.

This was a very difficult decision, one which I did not take lightly. I will forever cherish the friendships of teammates, academic and athletic support staff, fellow students, professors, and of course Terp fans.

Playing at Byrd Stadium and experiencing college life in College Park will remain as unforgettable experiences for the rest of my life. I certainly wish nothing but the best to the team next season and for years to come.

I look forward to completing one of my established goals of graduating from the University of Maryland this spring and becoming a proud alumnus of this great institution.

It is good to see that O'Brien is committed to finishing his academic obligations at Maryland before he goes to play anywhere else. He sounds like he thought about this decision for a long time and just thought that his fledgling football career would be better served elsewhere.
