O'Connor Talks About Michigan, Camp

2015 Canadian quarterback Michael O'Connor has had quite the week performing well at Sound Mind Sound Body, Michigan State's camp and Sunday and today in Ann Arbor at the Michigan football camp. O'Connor talks to GBW about his experience in a Winged Helmet, his thoughts on the practice facilities, and what the coaches have said about a scholarship offer.

2015 quarterback Michael O'Connor out of Ottawa, Canada hasn't slowly worked his way onto the college football recruiting radar; instead, the soon to be sophomore has exploded with several strong performances over the past few weeks.

First emerging in front of GBW's cameras at the Detroit IMG 7 on 7 just a few weeks ago, followed by an impressive performance in front of numerous coaches at Sound Mind Sound Body, O'Connor was asked to be in Ann Arbor for the Michigan football camp, which turned out to be a very important two days for the rising star.

"I think it went pretty well," O'Connor told GoBlueWolverine. "I really enjoyed working with the Michigan staff. They're really nice, and I definitely learned a lot from them that I'll take back and try to work on my game."

While Michigan was able to get another up close and personal look at what could be one of the most talented 2015 quarterbacks in the country, O'Connor took the time to appreciate the facilities the Wolverines have to offer in between throw after throw into the receivers hands.

"Oh I really like them, they're state of the art," said O'Connor. "They're beautiful, definitely top in the country, and I really like them."

O'Connor, at 6'5 and 205 pounds, stayed consistent with his velocity and accuracy throughout the two day camp experience at Michigan, managing to turn his strong performances over the past week into scholarship offers from Mississippi State, Akron, Toledo, Buffalo and Michigan State.

With the Michigan coaching staff having the opportunity to evaluate O'Connor in person on three separate occasions, the Wolverines didn't extend a scholarship offer just yet. But that could all change with one phone call in the near future.

"Coach Borges told me to give him a call next week so as far as that we'll see," O'Connor said.

While O'Connor was able to build a strong bond with Borges, the man in charge in Ann Arbor, Brady Hoke, spent a considerable amount of time with the quarterbacks Monday afternoon and even took a minute to speak with the talented, young signal caller before he and his teammates headed home.

"He told me that I did well, that he wants to see me back next year and that he'll see me bigger and stronger," said O'Connor, smiling.

After spending almost an entire week in the State of Michigan for Sound Mind Sound Body, as well as camp stops in East Lansing and Ann Arbor, O'Connor will get some much needed rest and relaxation before officially moving, permanently, down to Tennessee in order to enroll at Chattanooga Baylor School in a little less than a month's time.
