Former Maryland Terrapins quarterback Danny O'Brien, who's been barred by Randy Edsall from transferring to play for his former offensive coordinator with the Vanderbilt Commodores, is expected to file a NCAA appeal against the block. Bruce Feldman has all the details, including a quote from O'Brien's high school coach.
According to the coach, an appeal wouldn't be a guarantee that O'Brien would choose to head to Vandy. Instead, it would give the passer the chance to make a decision with a full suite of options in front of him, rather than those approved for him by a coach he never signed up to play for in the first place.
Feldman also cites a NCAA source, who says this kind of appeal has a good chance of succeeding. Edsall may want to drop the matter himself instead of letting the NCAA do it, as this sort of thing isn't exactly great for future recruiting.
