Just after 6 p.m. Saturday, Holley, who is in Orlando preparing for the Under Armour All-American Game, punched O'Brien's number into his cell phone.
I called him just to ask about the rumors, Holley said.
He said, 'You're gonna hear a lot of those things from other schools, saying I'm going to other teams. I'm not. I'm staying here,' Holley told Scout.com's Brian Dohn.
In related news, even as the O'Brien-to-the-Texans rumors were flying Saturday, Penn State received a verbal commitment from Virginia offensive lineman Chasz Wright, who had early committed to UConn before switching to the Nittany Lions.
