Michael O'Connor has a pretty good idea what he wants out of a college, even if he is just a sophomore.

"One of the things that's most important to me is the academics," the quarterback from Chattanooga (Tenn.) Baylor said. "I want to go somewhere where I can be able to succeed in the classroom and I'd also like to play in a pro-style offense, a team that likes to pass a lot and a good relationship with the coaches as well, that's real important to me [and] how we communicate."

Academics will play a key role in O'Connor's recruitment. He said he'd like to attend a very strong academic institution.
