DOB-related news continues to pile up, and probably will until he picks his new school. Today, he released a statement about his decision to transfer from Maryland.
After careful thought, contemplation, prayer, and consultation with my family, we have come to a consensus that it is in my best interest to continue my educational and athletic endeavors elsewhere.
This was a very difficult decision, one which I did not take lightly. I will forever cherish the friendships of teammates, academic and athletic support staff, fellow students, professors, and of course Terp fans.
Playing at Byrd Stadium and experiencing college life in College Park will remain as unforgettable experiences for the rest of my life. I certainly wish nothing but the best to the team next season and for years to come.
I look forward to completing one of my established goals of graduating from the University of Maryland this spring and becoming a proud alumnus of this great institution.
Pretty straightforward and standard, as far as press releases go. Seems this kind of thing (press release when a big-time college player makes a decision like this) is becoming more commonplace, but it's still kind of odd to me. Again, best of luck to DOB wherever he ends up.
Any thoughts on the statement? It's pretty bland, all in all, but still worth reading.
