Former Windsor standout O'Connor leaves Ohio State football program
By Coloradoan staff/Jan. 24, 2013 11:03 PM,
Former Windsor High School star offensive lineman Joey O’Connor has left Ohio State’s football program and plans to transfer to a school closer to home but hasn’t yet decided which one, his high school coach said Thursday.
O’Connor, a 6-foot-5, 305 pound lineman, still is taking classes at Ohio State and using their training facilities to rehabilitate a surgically repaired knee while he weighs his options, Windsor coach Chris Jones said.
O’Connnor had scholarship offers out of high school from Colorado State University and the University of Colorado but signed with Ohio State. He originally committed to Penn State, but switched to Ohio State after news of the Jerry Sandusky sexual assault scandal came out.
O’Connor redshirted as a freshman last fall at Ohio State, where former CSU assistant Urban Meyer is the coach, after undergoing knee surgery.
O’Connor is interested in criminology, which is one of the reasons why he chose Penn State and Ohio State, both of which have reputable programs. CSU offers a bachelor’s degree in sociology with a concentration in criminology.
Attempts to contact O’Connor and his parents, who live in Windsor, were not successful.
O’Connor was rated the No. 12 offensive tackle prospect in the nation by Rivals.com and a four-star recruit. He was a four-year starter on the offenisve line at Windsor and the Colorado Class 3A player of the year as a senior in 2011.
EDIT: to add that the pics are of him originally committing to OSU
