Still Available - WR Nesly Ovincy

After two solid seasons, Sierra WR Nesly Ovincy (6-1, 195) is a player still looking for a place to call home this fall. caught up with the talented wideout recently and he updated us on where things stand...

"Things have been going pretty well, but I'm still waiting for an offer," Ovincy told "I have a bunch of D-2 programs talking to me and a few D-1s, Alabama State, Toledo and Troy, have been talking to me too.

"A lot of schools just want to see my transcripts and to make sure I will be done in May. Hopefully after they get a look at that stuff, that's what I'm sorta waiting on now, things will pick up."

As a freshman in 2012, Ovincy worked into the Wolverines' receiver rotation, one that featured Vince Mayle, finishing with 14 receptions for 174 yards.

After redshirting in 2013 so he could earn some money to continue his schooling, Ovincy returned in 2014 ready to play and he finished with a team-leading 39 receptions for 493 yards and five scores.

"I'm a down-the-field receiver mostly," Ovincy said. "My deep speed (4.4) is good and I can go up and get the ball. Typically I am stronger and faster than the guys I am going up against, so I usually can make my plays down the field, but I can run short routes or intermediate too and do well."

His head coach agrees.

"Nesly is a phenomenal kid who is strong in the weight room and he can fly," Ben Noonan told recently. "His best football is ahead of him, as he continued to develop his craft here on a daily basis.

"I cannot recommend Nesly any higher to anyone still looking for a D1 talent at WR, who has the grades to go with the athletic ability."

With his academics on track, Ovincy will finish his two-year degree in May and he will have two years to play two starting this fall.
