After a round of reports that former Maryland Terrapins quarterback Danny O'Brien has put the Penn St. Nittany Lions on his list of possible landing places, new PSU coach Bill O'Brien pretty much confirmed the story at Penn State's Pro Day.
Bill O'Brien "Danny O'Brien is interested in Penn State...I told the team I'll do anything I can to improve the team within the rules"— Ben Jones (@Ben_Jones88) March 14, 2012
O'Brien (the quarterback) has reportedly narrowed the rest of his field to the Vanderbilt Commodores, Wisconsin Badgers, and Connecticut Huskies. The Nittany Lions would offer him the most established offensive mind there, as O'Brien (the coach) just helped coach the Patriots to the Super Bowl. He'd also have a great chance at immediate playing time, since ... well, you watched Penn State last year.
