Former Boston University forward Jake O'Brien has transferred to Temple, according to a report. O'Brien, a senior from Weymouth, missed all of last season after redshirting following a second foot surgery that took place back in September.

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.
