Arkansas All-American track star teases he'll play football for Hogs
Is Sam Pittman about to add one of the fastest college athletes in the country?
On Thursday, Arkansas track star Josh Oglesby, who was a 2019 All-American as a freshman, teased on social media that he would be suiting up on the gridiron for the Hogs.

Oglesby was rated a 2-star prospect exiting high school and was ranked as the nation’s No. 42 all-purpose running back and the state of Texas’ No. 400 overall prospect in the class of 2018, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings. The 5-foot-8, 180-pound back boasted offers from BYU and Montana State in football; however, he chose to compete in track at the next level. He was committed to the Cougars for much of 2018 before decommitting to pursue track. Now, he may make his return to the gridiron this fall.
The Katy, Texas, native set a personal best 6.74 in the 60-meters at the SEC Indoor Championships. He was named a First-team All-American in the 4 x 100-meter relay team. His father, John, played football for TCU.
