Danny O'Brien Transfer: O'Brien Not Going To Visit Vanderbilt For Now, According To Report

With the recent news that Maryland head coach Randy Edsall has granted quarterback Danny O'Brien, lineman Max Garcia and linebacker Mario Rowson their unconditional release, the question now is whether or not they will transfer to Vanderbilt. Right now it appears unlikely that O'Brien will even schedule an official visit, at least at this early stage, according to Washington Post Terrapins insider Eric Prisbell.

Part of the reason that O'Brien is hesitant to schedule anything with Vanderbilt is because of a formal complaint, filed by Maryland to the ACC and forwarded to the SEC that alleges improper contact with transferring players.

Given the swirling allegations that remain, O'Brien is unlikely, at least at this point, to visit Vanderbilt. He does not want to subject Commodores Coach James Franklin, whom he greatly respects, to any further scrutiny, and he also has no shortage of other options.

O'Brien right now is expected to make three official visits this weekend, though its not known yet where they are going to be.
