O’Brien Tells Recruit ‘I’m Staying’
This story just keeps getting more bizarre.
News broke a few hours ago that Bill O’Brien and the Houston Texans were close to finalizing a deal that would take the coach away from Penn State with three years remaining on his contract. This would obviously have some impact on the 2014 recruiting class, which is shaping up rather nicely for the Nittany Lions. Four-star defensive tackle Thomas Holley is one of the bigger parts of that class.
Luke Stampini of 247Sports spoke to Holley moments ago, who said that he and O’Brien had talked within the last hour.
“I just off the phone with him,” Holley said. “He said he isn’t going. It’s not true.”
Holly on O’Brien “He said everything they have put out there is not true, and he’s here for Penn State…he’s going to be here for me.”

It’s a reassuring sign that contradicts the ESPN report that a deal between O’Brien and Houston is likely within the next few days. And now we wait.
