Former Boston U. Terriers forward and 2009 America East Rookie of the Year Jake O'Brien has decided to transfer to Temple, according to a report.
O'Brien originally had no intention of leaving the Terriers but changed his mind when BU was banned from the America East's postseason tournament in 2012-2013. The Terriers will be moving to the Patriot League in 2013 and America East members voted to ban BU from the tournament this season.
O'Brien (6-9, 220) averaged 11.6 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1 block in 29 minutes per game for BU in his last season in 2010-2011. That season was ended by a foot injury after 14 games. The same injury cost him all of the 2011-2012 season when he reinjured his foot in Sept. 2011 and needed another surgery to repair the damage. O'Brien leaves BU having scored 1,020 points.
