Tarpon Springs (Fla.) offensive lineman Connor Donovanis flying under the radar in his recruiting process, but he is keeping focus on his upcoming senior campaign. Donovan believes that Tarpon will have a big 2014 season.
The Spongers reached the second round of the Class 5A state playoffs in 2013. They defeated Anclote 31-0 and then lost to Lakewood 31-9.
Donovan is starting to pick up interest on the recruiting front as Stetson, Florida Tech, Cornell, Suwanee, and Wheaton are recruiting him.
"Most of the recruiters talk about how close it would be to my home, and how their program's are young with a bright future," Donovan said. "I honestly have no clue when they could offer me. I'm just going to keep working and see what happens."
That same patient approach has helped Donovan on the football field as well.
"I think the biggest factor for school's interest comes from my effort and technique. I try to be as aggressive as i can while keeping my technique on every play."
Donovan currently does not hold any scholarship offers, but playing college football is something he's hoped for as a kid.
"Playing college football has always been a dream of mine. Since playing for Jr. Spongers when i was 5 years old making it into college football has always been the ultimate goal. I love football, and college means i get to play it for four more years."
