OBrien has three big July trips

Danny O'Brien just finished up at The Opening in Oregon and is back home in Michigan resting and trying to get back to 100-percent.
As if the travel and the event weren't exhausting enough, the four-star Flint (Mich.) Powers Catholic defensive tackle came down with the flu, a sickness that kept him out of action on Saturday, the last day of The Opening.
In spite of the flu O'Brien drew positive reviews for his performance and feels good about the event.
"I just got back home at 6 a.m. today so I'm still trying to get used to the time change," O'Brien laughed on Sunday.
"It was amazing. NIKE really went all out on it. It was definitely the best event I've been to. I had a great time with the other prospects competing against some of the best players in the country.
"I feel good about how I did. I did really well in the one-on-ones. I think I only got beat twice, and that was against some great competition. I proved I deserve a high ranking."
That point doesn't seem to be debatable and college coaches certainly agree.
While he's trying to get back to full strength O'Brien won't be resting for long.
"Later this month I'm going to get out to Alabama, Florida and Tennessee," O'Brien noted, explaining that those trips will be unofficials visits and part of one road trip, meaning he'll hit the schools consecutively.
Within the next week or two O'Brien, ranked the No. 222 prospect nationally by Rivals.com, will start to give thought to official visit plans in the fall.
