QB Spurns Duke, Commits to Maryland

Despite the lure of having David Cutcliffe, well-known for his quarterback grooming abilities, as his college head coach, Kernersville, N.C. native Danny O’Brien recently gave a verbal commitment to Maryland. The pro-style quarterback had been considering Duke and East Carolina along with the Terrapins. In Maryland head coach Ralph Friedgen’s still-early, three-person 2009 recruiting class, O’Brien is already the second quarterback.

Rivals.com lists him at 6-foot-3, 204-pounds, with a 4.64 40-time and a 4.0 GPA. This may just be speculation, but Cutcliffe’s biggest recruiting grab so far–Sean Renfree, one of the top 11 quarterbacks in the 2008 class–may have deterred O’Brien from becoming a Blue Devil.

In any case, we’ll keep you posted as more summer recruiting news filters in.
