At 6-foot-8 and 235 pounds, O'Mara is a bit of a throwback player. He is a center who plays as a center. O'Mara thrives on the low block and is one of the best passers in the country from the low post.
Xavier made him a priority for a while, and he picked the Musketeers over offers from Wichita State and the hometown school Loyola.
"My relationship with the coaching staff is great," said O'Mara of Xavier. "I was down there with Makinde London for my official visit and everybody hit it off. From the coaching staff to the families I felt it was a really good place for me."
He continued, "Also I have a great opportunity to play. They have a really good center in Matt Stainbrook who will be a senior when I get there. I can learn from him for a year and then be prepared for the monster conference they are in. Also they have a really good history for bigs and it is the best place for me."
