02/27/2013 - Alexander Ogletree, a part-time starting fullback for Georgia as a junior in 2012, is leaving the team for undisclosed medical reasons. Ogletree's decision was announced by Georgia in a brief statement on Wednesday. Ogletree is the twin brother of linebacker Alec Ogletree, who left school after his junior season to enter the NFL draft.
Georgia officials say Alexander Ogletree is on track to graduate and plans to continue classes while remaining on athletic scholarship. Ogletree started two games and appeared in eight games last season. He had three carries for 14 yards and one touchdown and four receptions for 25 yards. Former walk-on Merritt Hall, a rising sophomore, started six games at fullback last season. - AP Sports

01/01/2013 - Alec Ogletree has made it official: The junior linebacker is going pro, forgoing his final year of eligibility with the Georgia football team. "I'm leaving this year, this is my last game," Ogletree said after Georgia's 45-31 win over Nebraska. "It was a great run while I was here, just want to take a chance on this opportunity to go to the NFL and pursue my dreams." Ogletree is projected by many analysts to be a first-round pick. He said he applied to the NFL draft advisory committee, but had not heard back yet.
"You don't know where you're gonna get drafted at, but I just felt it was the right opportunity for me to go, and just based on my parents and coaches and stuff like that, I feel like I've got a good hold on the situation," he said. His final play at Georgia is a sack: Ogletree took down Nebraska's Taylor Martinez to seal the win. "It's great," Ogletree said. "I was real joyous. Coach called up a blitz for me, and I just took advantage of it and made the sack." - Seth Emerson, The Macon Telegraph

12/04/2012 - 12/4/12 NFL DRAFT SCOUT RISER: 1. Alexander Ogletree, ILB, Georgia...With 98 tackles on the season, it's pretty impressive that Ogletree leads the Bulldogs in tackles considering he missed the first four games of the season due to suspension. He had a few hiccups against Alabama in the SEC Championship Game, but for the most part, he was the best defensive player on the field for Georgia, finishing with a game-high 11 tackles.
A former safety, Ogletree showed off his terrific range and athleticism, making plays all over the field. With terrific quickness around the edge, he made a couple stops in the backfield and was fast in pursuit. Ogletree needs to be more consistent filling against the run and tackling with better pad level, but he doesn't shy from making the big hit. And although he doesn't look like much with his leaner-than-ideal frame, Ogletree arrives with deceiving power and violent intentions.
He made a costly mistake with a helmet-to-helmet personal foul hit on the quarterback, but for the most part he played disciplined most of the game, showing quick read/react skills. In nine games this season, Ogletree has finished with double-digit tackles seven times and has all the makings of a future first-round pick. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

09/08/2012 - Four Georgia defensive starters will miss Saturday's SEC opener at Missouri due to suspensions, ESPN reported Friday. The Bulldogs, ranked No. 7 in the coaches poll, will play without safety Bacarri Rambo and linebacker Alec Ogletree, who are serving suspensions for failing the school's substance-abuse policy, according to the report. They are already without cornerback Sanders Commings and outside linebacker Chase Vasser, who are serving two-game suspensions for getting arrested in the offseason. ESPN reported in March that Ogletree and Rambo would be suspended for multiple games but coach Mark Richt has not said anything about their availability for Saturday's game. Walk-on Connor Norman is expected to start at free safety in place of Rambo. Sophomore Malcolm Mitchell, a converted receiver, is back after missing last week's 45-23 win over Buffalo with a sprained ankle. Vasser, a junior, was suspended after he was arrested for a DUI in May. Commings, a senior, was suspended after his January arrest related to domestic violence charges. Bulldogs linebacker Cornelius Washington tweeted Friday: "S/O to the soldiers we have to leave behind. Y'all will be missed." Washington listed the Twitter handles for Ogletree, Rambo and Vasser. His message was later deleted. - The Sports Xchange
