Former Saginaw BV and Mott standout Torian Oglesby sets D-1 record

Posted: January 5, 2012 by Jared Field in College

Many of you will remember Torian Oglesby, the former standout at Mott Community College and lesser-known prospect out of Saginaw Buena Vista. Oglesby, from the time I first saw him as a sophomore in high school, has always had major-league athleticism. In high school, he didn’t have much else.

After two years at Mott Community College and another year at Bowling Green University, Oglesby is starting to live up to his potential.

Recently, he broke a longstanding NCAA record for consecutive made field goals. Over seven games, Oglesby made 26 straight shots. For the season, he is an incredibly efficient 33-of-37.

Now don’t get me wrong, he won’t be transitioning to the wing anytime soon — he knows his role. Still, that level of consistency is really remarkable.
