It is often to find solid information on new walk-ons, but today we meet a sophomore walk-on from Tampa.

Devon Connors - So.

Tampa, FL (Steinbrenner HS)

6’1”, 250 pounds

Linebacker

2020 Projection: Deep reserve

Connors will have some familiarity with an opponent early this coming season. He began his career at the Air Force Academy as a two-star recruit in 2017. Here is a small report from his commitment:

Devon Connors, a 6-foot-2, 240-pound senior linebacker at Steinbrenner High School, has committed to play football at the United States Air Force Academy, a Division I school. Connors previously committed to Florida International University on June 23. Through six games at Steinbrenner, Connors has 44 tackles, 8 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks and one interception.

I cannot find that he ever played at Air Force, however. He transferred to Purdue before spring practice in 2019, but then put his name into he transfer portal back in May, so it remains to be seen if he will stay. He is still listed on Purdue’s roster, at least. He is NOT currently on the 247 portal list.
