Yesterday, Bruce Feldman of CBS Sports noted that former Maryland quarterback Danny O’Brien would be visiting Ole Miss today as he decides his next — and hopefully, final — destination at the collegiate level.
O’Brien’s high school coach told CFT last week he expected O’Brien to take three or four official visits, with the first one coming within a matter of days. Judging by the following reports, the former Terp is right on schedule for a reported April decision.
FightonState.com reports that O’Brien visited Penn State over the weekend. New Nittany Lions coach Bill O’Brien confirmed last week that PSU was recruiting the heralded collegiate free agent, so to speak, but wouldn’t go further than that. O’Brien (the player) is also set to hit up Wisconsin this weekend, according to BadgerNation.com.
“Yes, I will be visiting this coming weekend,” O’Brien confirmed in a message to the Scout.com affiliated site.
O’Brien has been connected to the two Big Ten schools and the three stops on his tour have immediate needs at quarterback. Wisconsin’s QB situation, while promising down the road with highly-touted signee Bart Houston, has short-term depth issues. And Penn State… well.. you know.
There’s still time for O’Brien to go another direction, but it appears as of today, the aforementioned trio, plus Vanderbilt, are the frontrunners for O’Brien’s QB talents.
