2015 QB O'Connor to visit SEC school
By Dave Hooker
Michael O'Connor will make a rescheduled visit to Alabama this weekend for the Texas A&M game, the sophomore quarterback told ESPN via text message on Tuesday evening.
The prospect from Chattanooga (Tenn.) Baylor was originally scheduled to visit Tuscaloosa for the Mississippi State game on Oct. 27. However, a late high school game the previous Friday forced him to postpone the visit.
This will be O'Connor's second trip to Alabama for a game. He was in Tuscaloosa when the Crimson Tide hosted Ole Miss on Sept. 29.
O'Connor has shown strong interest in Alabama, telling ESPN he thought he'd be a good fit in the Crimson Tide's offense last month. O'Connor has also said he will visit Tuscaloosa next spring to be evaluated by Alabama's coaches in hopes of receiving a scholarship offer.
O'Connor is scheduled to visit Vanderbilt on Nov. 17 for the Tennessee game. The 2015 prospect has a scholarship offer from the Commodores. He also has scholarship offers from Akron, Buffalo, Michigan State, Mississippi State and Toledo.
