I was thinking about this earlier. How good exactly is Danny? Obviously this season has been horrible for him, but I wouldn't peg that on his skills, more so the system he is in.
So do we see Danny transferring? Is he good enough to play in the NFL to the point where he feels the need to really leave and start over. I remember reading that he graduates this spring, so does that make him eligible for the Russel Wilson rule? If he is graduating, I guess that rule technically is applicable to him, but he is only a red shirt sophomore, so I don't really know the deal with that.
Anyway, I guess the move to Vanderbilt to get back with Franklin would make sense. They have a young program there who was not all that bad this year, and it would give a chance for Danny to also go against the best defenses in the country. I have heard a rumor from a former walk-on that he may be considering Stanford. I couldn't tell you how reliable that info is, just is what I was told.
What are your thoughts? Is Danny NFL caliber? Does transferring really benefit him? Or would it be a mistake? Can Edsall find a way to utilize the talent that is Danny O'brien? I guess we'll all find out soon, but it would be a damn shame to see the kid we had so much hype around transfer after a sophomore season where he was benched.
