Former Maryland quarterback Danny O’Brien has decided to transfer to Wisconsin.
O’Brien, who reportedly considered Ole Miss and Vanderbilt along with Penn State, made the decision after visiting Wisconsin during the weekend.
“The vibe I got at Wisconsin was special,” O’Brien told ESPN.com. “Being with the players on the team, the coaching staff, the city, the campus was great. It was everything I was looking for. It was the complete package: the style of offense, the coaches I connected with, the players I connected with, it’s a great area.”
As for the tampering charges filed by Maryland toward Vanderbilt and head coach James Franklin, that talk should die down now that O’Brien has decided not to play for his former offensive coordinator.
Vanderbilt forwarded its own findings to the SEC office earlier this month. Don’t be surprised if those findings are never forwarded to the public with O’Brien headed to the Big Ten.
