It has been a long time coming for Braylin Presley but the offers are finally starting to roll in for one of the most dynamic players in Oklahoma.
Presley has reported two new offers after having 413 all-purpose yards in Bixby’s 70-21 blowout win over Booker T. Washington on ESPN last Thursday. Presley, the younger brother of OSU freshman wide receiver Brennan Presley, announced the offer from Oklahoma State on Wednesday.
According to MaxPreps, Presley has run for 1,129 yards in eight games at a clip of 8.2 yards-per-carry and a whopping 18 touchdowns. Couple that with 45 catches for 584 yards and eight more scores and it’s hard to see how the Bixby product doesn’t have more offers. Like his brother, Braylin can make a difference at running back or in the slot, and the possibilities with getting him the ball are endless.
Brennan finished ranked as the No. 925 best player in the class of 2020 and is considered by most standards to be underrated. Braylin fits the same bill, currently unranked according to 247Sports despite offers from the likes of OSU, Memphis and Kansas.
Just a junior, Presley still has plenty of time to amass offers, but OSU figures to be in contention with the family ties that also include his sister Britney who ran track at OSU. Perhaps the reason Presley doesn’t have more offers is his size. At 5 foot-8 and 165 pounds, he reminds me of Texas A&M true freshman Devon Achane, an all-purpose back at 5’9 and 185 pounds. Achane has scored three touchdowns for the Aggies this season and Presley will look to follow that prototype. Colleges likely won’t be passing him up due to his size for much longer, so OSU getting in before any other power five schools (other than Kansas) is important.
