Danny O'Brien Transfer News: Penn State's Bill O'Brien Addresses Rumors

STATE COLLEGE, Pa.--Penn State coach Bill O'Brien addressed rumors of Maryland quarterback transfer Danny O'Brien's interest in the program at the Nittany Lions' pro day on Wednesday at Holuba Hall.

"Danny does have an interest," O'Brien said. "He obviously was granted a release by the University of Maryland and contacted us. He's contacted a few other schools so I'd say we're one of many schools that he's looking at. But like I've said to our football team from the beginning, if I can do anything to improve the football team within the rules, whether it's a recruiting idea, or a scheme or a transfer, then I'm definitely going to look into it, and that's part of the process right now with Danny O'Brien."

The sophomore quarterback threw for 1,648 yards, seven touchdowns and 10 interceptions this past season with the Terrapins.

If he were to join the Penn State quarterback stable, he'd compete with Matthew McGloin, Rob Bolden and Paul Jones for the job. O'Brien said that trip will split reps equally during spring practice as things with the roster stand now. He said he'll form most of his opinions on the quarterback situation from what he sees in drills.
