O'Brien to transfer to Wisconsin

Former Maryland QB Danny O'Brien is going to transfer to Wisconsin.

The news, first reported by JS Online and confirmed by CBSSports.com, was announced by the school Wednesday afternoon.
O'Brien picked Wisconsin over Penn State and Vanderbilt. He was blown away by his visit to the UW campus and really connected with coach Bret Bielema and new Badgers offensive coordinator Matt Canada.
O'Brien, the 2010 Freshman All-American and former ACC Rookie of the Year, is on schedule to graduate with a business degree in the spring and is eligible as a graduate transfer this fall -- much like former N.C, State QB Russell Wilson was for Wisconsin this past year. Wilson led the Badgers to an 11-3 record and the Rose Bowl. One key distinction with O'Brien as opposed to many other recent graduate transfers is that the QB does have two seasons of eligibility remaining, not just one.
In 2010, O'Brien had a 22-8 TD-INT ratio while helping lead Maryland to a 9-4 record and a top 25 finish before leaving the Terps program after the tumultuous first year of the Randy Edsall Era.
