Bogar starting to heat up

Muskogee, Okla., cornerback Brenton Bogar is one of the best players in Oklahoma. But he's also been one of the most difficult players to reach to talk about the recruiting process. However, now the spring evaluation process is here, he's warming up to the whole recruiting process.
"I've been waiting for this to happen," Bogar, who is 5-foot-9 and 170 pounds, said. "I don't know how to handle all the attention I've gotten all of a sudden. It's a real blessing.
"But I'm still get really nervous talking on the phone. I don't want to mess anything up. I just talk to the coaches about how I can fit in down at their school. A big thing for me when I pick a school is that I find a good Christian environment."
At this point, Bogar said a few schools are working hard to get his commitment.
"Right now, Kansas State and Colorado State have really been talking to me," Bogar said. "I have an offer from Kansas State, and the coach at Colorado State said I'm going to get an offer from them. I've also been talking to a lot of schools like North Carolina, Texas Tech, Missouri, Colorado and Kansas.
"Kansas just sent me and my teammate Jeremy Burton an offer today. I also went down to Oklahoma State for their junior day. They said they needed more film. I sent them some new stuff, and coach (Jason) Jones said he's very interested."
At this point, Bogar said he's pretty focused on track. He's run a personal best 10.3 seconds in the 100 meters this spring and he hopes to bring home some medals in the 100 and 200 meters.
"Track is great because it keeps me in great football shape," he said.
