OBrien visits Maryland

Quarterback Danny O'Brien is quickly approaching a decision. The Kernersville (N.C.) East Forsyth prospect is down to two schools, Duke and Maryland. The 6-foot-3, 204-pounder just left College Park and sat down with Rivals to discuss how it went.
"I just left Maryland, it was a great visit," he said. "It really reinforced the people and I enjoyed myself today. I had a great visit.
"I got there and watched a power point and got the background on the whole staff and how they'd use me. Then I sat in Coach Friedgen's office and met with a couple of the wide receivers. They are cool kids. I saw the weight room a bit and that was it."
O'Brien met with Friedgen. How did it go?
"It was great," he said. "He's a real genuine guy. It was my second time in his office and he really shows his character in the kids I met. It reflects in all of them."
O'Brien added some final thoughts on the visit.
"Overall it was very impressive," he said. "I came away even more impressed than before and it was great top to bottom."
The Carolina quarterback maintains he is down to two schools.
"It's still Duke and Maryland," he said. "It was my mom and stepdad's first time up to Maryland and after the camp at Ravens stadium today we'll talk about both places.
"I think I'll decide pretty soon. I've got to make an objective decision and it will probably be in the next week or two."
Wake Forest has come in recently. Are they still a consideration?
"I'm not sure, they weren't recruiting me that hard before, so we'll see."
Meanwhile, O'Brien discussed his other finalist, Duke.
"I've been impressed with Duke from day one, with the new staff and the hire by the AD. I've always been impressed and still am."
