Bethune-Cookman’s Peter O’Brien set to transfer to Miami

Former UM broadcaster Justin Antweil has confirmed the Internet Reports that Bethune-Cookman catcher Peter O’Brien will be transferring to Miami. (Link) O’Brien was one of the top catchers in the country in 2011 at Bethune-Cookman while being selected in the third round by the Rockies. He was not able to come to an agreement with team making him eligible to return to school. He is expected to appeal to the NCAA for a waiver to become eligible for the 2012 season. 

Last season, we had rated O’Brien was the 18th best player in the nation in our Top 100 countdown. He is expected to be on our countdown this season.

We have spoken to several coaches throughout the country about this news today and they were stunned that O’Brien did not sign with the Rockies this summer. He will enter the ACC as one of the top catchers.
