OL Joey O'Connor (6-5 285) of Winsor, CO has offers from Colorado, Colorado State, Utah, and Penn State and says USC will offer as well. "I called them and they told me that they will have a scholarship waiting for me," O'Connor said.
He says he does not have any ties to the state of South Carolina but is interested in the Gamecocks. "I want to visit them either on an official visit or an unofficial (visit) over the summer," he said. "We are setting up a time for me to talk to Coach (Elliott)."
O'Connor grew up a hockey fan and says he does not have a favorite team. "I don't have any allegiances to any college football teams," he said. "I never watched it growing up. I have gotten more into it since I started playing in high school."
He attended junior days and Colorado and Colorado State where he picked up offers from each school. He is heading to Penn State for a visit this month and Utah in May. O'Connor says he is very interested in USC but does not have a favorite.
