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.
@DanHellie Source: Maryland QB Danny O'Brien is leaving. Met with Randy Edsall today and will transfer.
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?
