Danny O’Brien checking out Ole Miss?

With two Big Ten schools (Penn State and Wisconsin) already on the radar with former Maryland quarterback Danny O’Brien, an SEC school not named Vanderbilt has also reportedly emerged as a possible landing spot for 2012’s hottest collegiate free agent.

According to tweets from Ole Miss beat writer Yancy Porter of (Ole Miss’ affiliate) and CBS’ Bruce Feldman, O’Brien is set to visit the Rebels on Tuesday. Former Terps tackle Max Garcia will also be on that visit.

Earlier this month, O’Brien’s high school coach, Todd Willert, told CFT that at least 15 schools have expressed interest in O’Brien and that the former Terp will “take three or four official visits”  before deciding his collegiate fate in late April.

O’Brien was the ACC’s Rookie of the Year in 2010 under old head coach Ralph Friedgen, but was benched midway through last season after an inconsistent start. Still, O’Brien was productive enough early on in his career that he’s still one of the most sought after transfers this offseason, and the Rebels got zero production out of the quarterback spot last season.

Of course, Ole Miss was bad in general on offense and adding O’Brien could give the Rebs a boost. As a plus, O’Brien still has two years of eligibility left even though he’s on track to get his undergraduate degree this spring.
