Ogletree made a complete recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, an injury that kept him on the sideline for the entire 2007 season. The fourth-year junior produced a second 50-plus reception season in his three years with the varsity in 2008, but chose to forgo his final year of eligibility and applied for the 2009 NFL Draft.
In 21 games as a starter, he moved ahead of All-American Herman Moore (1988-90) to take over the seventh spot on the school's career list with 117 receptions. His 1,332 receiving yards placed 13th in Cavalier annals. He hauled in 58 passes in 2008, tying Wali Lundy (2002) for fifth on Virginia's season-record chart, while his 52 grabs in 2006 rank tenth.
Ogletree was an Honor Roll student and standout receiver at Holy Cross High School. He was named the New York Daily News and Newsday Player of the Year, adding All-City and All-Queens honors after catching 61 passes for 1,170 yards and 19 touchdowns, all figures that are league records. His 19 scoring grabs were one shy of the state record. He also intercepted five passes as a defensive back that season.
The senior led the team to the conference championship, as he scored three touchdowns in the title game, including one on a 64-yard interception, despite playing with a fractured wrist. The All-Conference performer caught 40 passes for 1,027 yards and 10 touchdowns as a junior. He also lettered in basketball and baseball.
Ogletree enrolled at Virginia in 2005, but spent the first half of the season with the traveling squad before being activated for the final seven games. He earned one start at split end vs. Temple, finishing his freshman year with just seven catches for 27 yards (3.9-yard average).
When Deyon Williams suffered a preseason foot injury, Ogletree was ready to step in as the team's featured receiver in 2006. He started nine of 12 contests, leading the team with 52 receptions for 582 yards and four touchdowns. He also proved to be a capable runner, totaling 63 yards on seven attempts (9.0-yard average). After the season, he underwent wrist surgery to repair an injury from his high school days.
That would not be the first time he saw the operating table during his time at Virginia. In 2007 spring drills, he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, undergoing surgery that forced the staff to grant him a medical hardship.
Ogletree returned to action in 2008, starting 11 games at split end. The All-Atlantic Coast Conference honorable mention led the team and ranked fifth in the league with a career-high 58 catches for 723 yards (12.5-yard average) and five touchdowns, adding another score on a 16-yard reverse. He also averaged 18.3 yards on 15 kickoff returns, finishing with 1,005 all-purpose yards.
