Danny O'Brien Transferring From Maryland Football, According To Report

Maryland's one-time quarterback of the future, Danny O'Brien, and offensive lineman Max Garcia are reportedly headed out of College Park. UPDATE: O'Brien appears to have denied the NBC4 reporthttp://www.sbnation.com/ncaa-football/2012/2/8/2785442/danny-obrien-transferring-maryland-football.

The great Under Armour exodus of 2011-2012 continues, reportedly. The 2010 ACC Rookie of the Year, quarterback Danny O'Brien, could be the next to leave the Maryland Terrapins, based on a report by NBC4's Dan Hellie. If true, he'd become the next in a long line to leave since Randy Edsall took over. Hellie also reports the exit of rising junior offensive lineman Max Garcia.

UPDATE: O'Brien appears to have denied the NBC4 report.

Maryland fans are kind of freaking out a little bit.

In 2011, O'Brien fell out of favor early in the year, throwing five interceptions in three games, including one in a blowout loss to the Temple Owls. He was pulled in Week 5 against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, replaced by the dual threat C.J. Brown. He managed to regain significant playing time through the season, winding up with just a seven-to-10 touchdowns-to-interceptions ratio. Still, he was only a sophomore.

Complicating matters, O'Brien served as a host for top 2012 Turtles recruit Stefon Diggs just days ago, our own Testudo Times reported. What in the world might he have told Diggs during that visit?
