Three Transfers Given Full Release

Randy Edsall has lifted the transfer restrictions placed upon quarterback Danny O'Brien (pictured), offensive lineman Max Garcia and linebacker Mario Rowson.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Head football coach Randy Edsall announced Wednesday that former offensive lineman Max Garcia, quarterback Danny O’Brien and linebacker Mario Rowson have all been granted a full release from the football program with no transfer restrictions. Each requested and was granted release from their scholarship commitments at the University of Maryland.

“While at first I thought it was important to limit the institutions to which they could transfer, I have since reconsidered my decision” Edsall said. “At the end of the day, I want what’s best for these guys and I wish them well in their futures.

“As a program we are looking forward to putting this distraction behind us and to moving forward. Spring practice opens on March 10 and we can’t wait to get back out on the field.”

“I am pleased to be able to move on and pursue a graduate degree and continue my athletic career at the school of my choosing.” O’Brien said. “I would like to thank Coach Edsall for his support throughout this process.”

“I would like to thank Maryland and the coaching staff and I wish my former teammates well” Garcia said. “I’m excited about the prospect of continuing my athletic and academic career at an institution closer to home where my family and friends will be able to see me play.”
