Entrance Exam is a series at BuckeyeNation where we chat with incoming freshmen in Ohio State athletics.

According to the Denver Post, Joey O'Connor "is believed to be the first Colorado product to sign with Ohio State since Montbello grad Chris Sanders did so in the early 1990s."

Like Sanders, who caught 71 passes at Ohio State from 1992-94 and had a seven-year NFL career, O'Connor comes to the Buckeyes this summer with a ton of potential. An All-Colorado selection, O'Connor (Windsor, Colo./Windsor) was named the state's Class 3A Player of the Year last season.
