Sugar Land (Texas) Fort Bend Austin three-star all-purpose back Bryson Oglesby is a two-time second-team all-district selection, and one of the more versatile running backs in Texas.
The 6-foot, 190-pound back has made a name for himself as an all-around threat in the Houston-area, and he hopes to continue to do the same on the college level.
"That's my goal for the next level. I enjoy it," Oglesby said. "This was probably the most fun football season I've ever played because I got to do just about everything."
Oglesby, who rushed for 327 yards and 5 scores while recording 9 receptions for 310 yards and 5 scores as a junior, already holds scholarship offers from Houston and Illinois, and he anticipates a few more coming in the near future.
"Right now it's been kind of slow just because college football is starting up their spring and they have their spring games, but this spring I'm expecting a nice amount of offers," Oglesby said. "In about two or three weeks they should really start rolling in."
Who are some of the schools to watch?
"Well, not too long ago Bob Stoops came to my school and said he was coming back along with the position coach," Oglesby said. "Fresno State, Cal looks interested. TCU came by and Nebraska. Nebraska is really interested."
Coaches from Baylor, Washington, SMU, Texas, and Arkansas have also shown interest, and out of all the schools there are a few coaches who have caught Oglesby's attention.
"I like TCU and Nebraska," Oglesby said. "I like the coaches they brought down. They were pretty cool coaches. I liked the Illinois coach. Of course I like all of them but just from what they told me those are guys you know (stood out)."
Oglesby has not been able to make any visits so far this spring. He was unable to attend junior days at Texas and SMU, and while he has thought about visits to TCU and SMU, he has not been able to schedule them yet.
The standout running back does plan to attend Houston's spring game.
Oglesby is currently ranked a No. 8 among the nation's all-purpose backs and No. 57 in the Rivals.com Texas Preseason Top 100 for 2015.
