The 19-year-old has impressed manager Brian Laws in recent trials at Glanford Park and he has now penned a permanent deal with the Third Division outfit.
"I am very happy to sign a contract at Scunthorpe," said O'Connor.
"I have been on trial here for a while and now it is up to the gaffer to see if he wants me involved with the first team.
"I haven't played in a first team at this level yet, but the manager has told me he wants me involved either on the bench or whatever.
"I do not rely a lot on pace but I like running with the ball and I can come on and change a game.
"I am a centre forward but I do not mind playing out wide but it is whatever is best for the team.
"So far I have fitted in okay because there is a young squad here at the moment. Brian Laws has told me to keep on doing what I am doing and not to be shy.
"Basically I just need to get on with everyone, train hard and do what is asked of me."
