Questions on Bobcat Recruit Dominique O’Connor

I have fielded a handful of questions the last few months on Bobcat recruit Dominique O’Connor from Westchester high school in Los Angeles. My response as of late, has been, that I do not thing we have much of a chance and are probably not recruiting him any more. It sounds like I am only half right.

Just to review, Dominique O’Connor is a 5-9 to 5-10 true point guard, with a set of jets, who averaged 16.7 points, 6.3 assists and 2.3 steals a game. He was named the LA City player of the year by a panel of sportswriters. His Westchester high school team went 34-2 this year winning the California state championship. In the championship game his Westchester team beat future Grizzly, Will Cherry’s McClymonds high school. O’Connor’s stock has been going through the roof this year, from a possible D-2 or Low D-1 recruit to a possible Pac-10 caliber player right now.

A few weeks back I read an article where O’Connor stated he wanted to stay close to home, and had crossed a handful of teams off his list that did not meet those requirements. He also stated, USC, Fresno State, San Francisco and San Diego State his four favorites, and schools he wanted to visit. At that time USC had not offered him but was the team he grew up cheering for. In an article published in Scout.com today, O’Connor mentions that that USC offered him this week end and they have moved to the head of his list with San Francisco second and a trip scheduled to Fresno State for this week-end. Now despite this he did, though, mention that he is also still receiving recruiting interest from Montana State, UC Riverside, UC Santa Barbara, and Santa Clara, and he may entertain a visit from one of them. It looks like the Bobcat’s are kind of sort-of still in the picture. So for the extreme optimists among you keep you fingers crossed, but I would not go printing up any jerseys quite yet.
