Rivals100 2007 offensive tackle Josh Oglesby out of Brown Deer (Wis.) Saint Francis was intending to make a junior day at Notre Dame over the weekend. The 6-foot-7, 315-pounder didn't make the trip.
"I was suppsed to be there, but I didn't get a chance to go because my mom had to work and my dad was out of town on business," he said. "I've rescheduled for another junior day on February 25th when their basketball team plays Marquette."
What does Oglesby like about the Irish?
"Notre Dame is definitely one of the schools at the top of my list," he said. "Who wouldn't look at them with all the success they've had and their staff is amazing. Now they really have a program built for winning and are bringing in a lot of good athletes."
Despite his strong interest in Notre Dame, the tackle prospect confirmed everyone is even.
"I've got offers from Wisconsin, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Illinois, Arkansas, Louisville, Stanford and Iowa. Right now I'm looking at the schools that have offered," he said. "I plan to take other junior days to Iowa, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Michigan. The other school I like a lot is Wisconsin because it's my home state and I've had the most contact with their coaches."
Oglesby is beginning to line up summer camps.
"I plan to go to the same ones as last year including Wisconsin, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Notre Dame and Iowa," he said. "I also plan to add a few other schools in the Big Ten or some southern schools."
Oglesby was named first team all-state, first team all-conference and first team all-area as a junior. He was also invited to the Army All-American combine, but couldn't go.
