Oakley Proactive in His Search

While we love bringing you a good portion of high school news and updates, we also want to feature some of the state's top athletes and find out what's going down on the college recruiting front. Today, we feature Oak Ridge running back Torian Oakley. This is a TPI Premium article.

With the season over, the focus shifts for many of the uncommitted players in the class of 2010. One of those players still looking to get in somewhere is Conroe (TX) Oak Ridge running back Torian Oakley.

And though there is a not a whole lot of movement going on, there is some.

"I was just offered by William Penn a 70 percent scholarship to go an play there. But right now I am trying to get my video out to a few colleges," Oakley said.

Those few colleges include the in-town Houston program and the newly formed Southland program UT-San Antonio. The 5-foot-9, 170-pound Oakley is also hearing from schools UTEP and Division II programs Truman and Incarnate Word. 

Oakley finished the season with 1,300 rushing yards and 400 yards receiving, 17 total touchdowns. Most of the programs are recruiting him as a running back and/or slot receiver.
