"I'm trying to look more at the 40-, 50-year plan, rather than the four or five," said O'Connor, who as a junior passed for 3,600 yards and 37 touchdowns, both Edison single-season records, and rushed for 415 yards and 10 touchdowns.

"It kind of just came down to where do I want my future to go. Yale is such a prestigious school."
