It's hard to find a kid that has the total package both on and off the field, but Arlington (Texas) Grace Prep defensive end Wesley Oglesby is one of those rare finds. At 6-foot-6 and 230 pounds, Oglesby has the body and frame to be a big-time college football player. Off the field he has a 3.56-grade point average and through the roof test scores. It seems, though, that he really prides himself with his on the field success.
"I think I have good quickness, and I have good size and my long arms help," Oglesby said. "I work hard to keep the other guys on my team focused on winning, and I also have great coaching to go along with my quickness."
Put all of those things together and that's a deadly package.

Duke and Cal agree as both schools have already extended Oglesby a scholarship offer. But those probably won't be his last.
"I've talked to those two on the phone, but I've also talked to other schools," Oglesby said. "I've also talked to Texas, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Baylor and Florida so far on the phone. I don't know if those schools are going to offer me. It's hard to tell. They just told me that they're very interested in me."
Oglesby said he's working on his plans now for this summer. He plans to camp in California at USC and Cal. He's hoping to hit a few camps in Texas and also take an unofficial visit to Duke to check out the campus.
"Location isn't one of the big keys for me," he said. "I'd like No. 1 to get to play at a great school and get a great education."
