Oglesby ready to run-and-gun with the Hawkeyes

Sure, he’s a proud dad.

But after 32 years of coaching basketball, the last five as an assistant at Mount Mercy University following a successful stint at Kirkwood, Ted Oglesby knows college talent, too.

And he’s convinced his high school senior son Josh will shine next year for the revitalized run-and-gun Iowa Hawkeyes under new coach Fran McCaffery.

“They like to get out and go, and Josh is athletic enough that he’ll fit right in,” the elder Oglesby said Wednesday at Washington High School after his son signed his formal national letter of intent to attend the University of Iowa.

“I wouldn’t have said this a year ago, but the coaching philosophy there now is perfect for Josh. He brings a lot of dimensions to the game.”

A 6-foot-6 shooting guard who averaged 16.2 points a game for the Warriors as a junior while hitting on 40 percent of his three-point shots, Oglesby is also a deft passer.
