College of DuPage QB Devin O'Hara was one of the top passers in the NJCAA last season

Now that he's finished up a successful sophomore season and his two-year degree, College of DuPage QB Devin O'Hara (6-5, 215) waits patiently for the right opportunity to present itself. He has several schools looking his way, but so far, none have extended offers and he updated recently on where things stand...

"I've gotten heavy interest from Indiana, Purdue and Arkansas State, but so far, none have offered yet," O'Hara noted. "I actually worked out for the Indiana coaches and I felt like I did really well. I also threw for the entire staffs of Utah and Utah State during the summer and both were really interested in me, but they haven't had much contact lately."

As a third-year sophomore this past season, O'Hara had a very big season, completing nearly 67% of his passes for over 2,200 yards with 24 touchdowns and five picks while running for 200 yards and four touchdowns as well.

"I'm definitely a dual threat guy," O'Hara said when asked about his style of play. "I excel at dropping back and throwing the ball, but I can run as well. 

"This offseason I want to work on bigger and stronger and continuing to work on keeping my footwork clean."

As a senior at Prospect High School in Illinois back in 2012, O'Hara finished with over 3,000 yards and 32 touchdowns and was named All-Conference, All-Area and All-State for his efforts, but he didn't have a lot of options, so he decided to sign with Western Illinois, but things didn't quite pan out there.

"I never felt like I really got a chance so I decided to leave and start fresh," O'Hara noted. "I also wanted to be part of a winning program and coach Foster, the minute I met him, I knew he was all about the truth and he's the best football coach I've ever played for.

"I just felt like DuPage would be the best fit for me and felt like they are on the rise. It was the most fun I've had playing with a team of guys ever.

"Shout out to the Bird Gang. I love all of them!"

As we noted at the beginning, O'Hara has already wrapped up his academic work and he will have two years to play two starting this fall. will continue to keep tabs on O'Hara in the coming weeks and we will update news on him as it happens.
