Despite a slow start to his recruitment, the offers have started piling up and are coming from all over the country.
With 9 offers on the table, O'Connor is still sourcing through schools and planning visits, including one to PSU.
"Right now I'm trying to keep my options open. I've only seen Colorado State and Colorado, so I want to stay open until I see what else it out there. I'm going out to Penn State on June 24th, and I'm also headed to Utah on June 14th."
An impressive combination of size and athleticism, the 6-foot-5, 288-pound lineman brings a nasty streak that the coaches love.
"All the coaches I've been talking to say that I like to get nasty. I'm a pretty nasty player on the field. I like to finish my blocks and drive that other player into the ground no matter what."
In no rush to make a decision, O'Connor plans on letting the process take it's course while taking all of five of his official visits.
"I think I'm going to wait a little bit longer and enjoy the ride while I have it and take my official visits."
