RB Jae'lon Oglesby Profile
Offensive coordinator Chad Morris recently explained to him how that status as a Clemson commitment works.
"I talked to coach Morris and he was telling me, now that I was committed to not really talk to anybody like that. They'll go look at other running backs," Oglesby told CUTigers at Daniel High School, earlier this week.
"It's like a promise that I made to them. I haven't really been talking to anybody."
But that hasn't stopped mail from other schools from flooding into coach Randy Robinson's office. Tennessee, the other school with an offer to Oglesby, continues to pursue, and rightfully so.
Oglesby, a three-star on Scout.com, is a quality prospect.
"He's a gifted talent…he's working in the weight room, his numbers have gone up in the weight room," Robinson said.
Oglesby recently maxed out with a 345-pound squat.
"That was big for him," Robinson said. "He's been great on that end [in the weight room]."
Clemson last had Oglesby on campus in March for Junior Day.
"I sat down with my position coach [Tony Elliott], coach Morris and talked to Dabo [Swinney] some. My family really got to meet them," Oglesby said.
What was the message from the coaches?
"They were just making sure I'm staying focused right now in school, just making sure I get there first, before anything," Oglesby said. "I've got to stay focused on my grades, stay focused on the field [and] just keep working hard."
Lately, there hasn't been a whole lot of contact between Oglesby and the Clemson staff.
"I haven't really been talking to them since Junior Day," he said.
As a junior, Oglesby rushed for 2,400 yards and 28 touchdowns.
As a sophomore, Oglesby rushed 221 times for 1,731 yards and 25 touchdowns. He caught nine passes for 97 yards and a score and returned three kickoffs for 105 yards.
"My main goal, my only goal so far in high school is to win a state championship. That's my only goal, besides to go to college," he said.
