"The NC State camp went well for Josh," Ike Oglesby, his father, said. "NC State has now offered him a scholarship. It is the first scholarship offer for Josh, and I know it means a lot to him to get that first ACC-level scholarship.
"They worked him out at tailback and safety, but from what I've gathered the defensive coaches really seemed to be impressed. The defensive coaches were calling first dibs on him."
As a junior, Oglesby, who played fullback, rushed for 1,032 yards and 13 touchdowns, while adding 231 yards and one touchdown through the air. In limited time on defense, he recorded 45 tackles and three interceptions at the strong safety position.
A teammate of NC State soft verbal Chris Culliver, Oglesby is a superb high school player blessed with great athleticism. Checking in at 5-foot-11 and 205 pounds, Oglesby has been timed at 4.45 in the 40-yard dash this spring.
Oglesby will continue to camp and try to secure more scholarship offers. His upcoming camping schedule includes Clemson, Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, and Virginia.
