One of the top offensive linemen in the Midlands for next year’s class is Oklahoma City (Okla.) Bishop Mcguinness 2018 offensive tackle Owen Condon. At 6-foot-7, 300-pounds, many schools have taken notice of his physically impressive stature as well as his game.
Condon’s recruitment has started early by already racking up offers from Ohio, SMU, Tulsa, Texas Tech, Louisiana Monroe, and Iowa State along with also hearing from others including the Wolverines.
“Yes I have (heard from Michigan),” Condon told The Michigan Insider. “(Defensive Line) Coach Greg Mattison came by my school in the spring and said they really liked me and invited me to camp. I was supposed to attend the satellite camp they were doing with Baylor, but it was cancelled because of the whole Baylor scandal thing.”
Despite the four-star prospect not getting the opportunity to learn and work with the Wolverine coaching staff at the satellite camp, they are still a program that is definitely on his radar, especially with their great offensive linemen history.
“I'm very interested Michigan because they have had some really great lineman come through their school and because their program is on the rise,” said Condon. “I think they will be a top 5 team in the next couple of years. I think that good offensive lineman go to Michigan to play. Michigan is known for a good line and I think that is why they have had recent success in recruiting offensive linemen.”
With no offer currently on the table from the the Maize and Blue, if one were to come, it would put the Wolverines heavily in the mix.
“It'd mean a lot because they would be by far the biggest school to offer me,” said Condon. “I would definitely take a visit there because I've never been and I would seriously consider attending Michigan.”
Condon has been training and preparing this off-season for another run at the state title and hopes his work shows on the field this upcoming year.
“We're looking really good coming into the season,” said Condon. “We made it to the semifinals last year and we return a lot of guys. For me, I'm looking to finish more blocks this year. I think I've gotten a lot stronger and I'm looking to prove that with my play this year.”
