After this weekend’s big news that Taylor Decker had bolstered the Ohio State line with a verbal commitment, today we hear that Colorado standout Joey O’Connor has done the same and is a part of the Ohio State 2012 class.
A former Penn State commitment (sound familiar?), O’Connor checks in at 6’4″ and 285 pounds. The Windsor Colorado student is projected at an interior spot for Ohio State, although there might be a move to tackle in his future.
In addition to the Lions and Buckeyes, O’Connor held offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Iowa, Tennessee, and South Carolina, among others. His video shows tenacity and a bit of a “nasty” streak- think Justin Boren. Check it out after the jump.
Welcome to the Buckeye Family, Joey!!
