Owen Condon, a 6-foot-7, 300-pound offensive tackle from Oklahoma City (Okla.) Bishop Mcguinness added two huge offers to his list last week when Big 12 programs like Oklahoma State and TCU stepped up to the plate.
This week -- during spring break -- Condon will be making a tour through 'SEC Country'.
"For spring break I am going to see Florida, Georgia, and Vanderbilt. I am really interested in Florida, because I have a great uncle who played there and that is where my grandfather went and I kind of grew up a Florida Gator fan, so we are going to go visit there, Georgia and I have an interest in them because that is where my mom went to school."
Condon is open to considering programs in all parts of the country and is not necessarily your traditional OKPreps recruit, as he could see himself leaving the region if the college fits his needs.
"A lot of schools out there are kind of hesitant to offer Oklahoma guys because they think that if they offer that Oklahoma or Oklahoma State will just sweep in and grab them up at the last second," Condon said, "but I am not from Oklahoma. I was born in Atlanta, Georgia and we lived in Florida until I was in the fourth grade, so I did not actually grow up a fan of the in-state schools. They are great schools, but I do not owe any allegiance to them in that regard."
If at all possible Condon would like to have his recruitment wrapped up before the start of his senior season, however he does not have a hard timeline for his impending commitment.
"Ideally I would like to commit possibly this summer," Condon informed. "Sometime around August to get it out of the way before my senior year starts. We (Bishop Mcguinness) are going to have a good team. I just want to be able to focus on my team and not kind of worry about other people and other things that need to be done."
As a junior, Condon helped Bishop Mcguinness to a 12-2 record and the state championship game, paving the the way to over 200 rushing yards per game. He earned First Team All-State honors for his efforts.
