BIXBY, Oklahoma – Muscogee (Creek) citizen Braylin Presley signed his Letter of Intent to play football at Oklahoma State University in front of family, friends, teammates and coaches on Dec. 15 at the Lee Snider Field where he started his football career as a Bixby Spartan.
Presley will join his older brother Brennan as a Cowboy and play alongside him again on the gridiron.
While the pair of brothers played together at Bixby, they won two state championships.
After Brennan went on to play for OSU, Braylin won two more championships as a Spartan making him a four-peat gold baller.
Presley is the 2021 MaxPreps Oklahoma High School Football Player of the Year and will have the opportunity to play in the All-State game.
247Sports listed Presley as Oklahoma’s number eight prospect for 2022.
This season Presley ran the football for 1,105 yards and 17 touchdowns on 109 carries for the year and caught 56 passes for 665 yards and an additional seven scores. Presley ran for 4,978 yards and 75 touchdowns over his four-year career at Bixby and reeled in 145 catches for 1,684 yards and 23 more scores, according to MaxPreps.
The Presley’s have a family history of attending OSU starting with eldest sister Brandee, who also attended Ole Miss and now University of Georgia.
The running back stated he is very grateful for the opportunity and support.
“It wasn’t set in stone in first,” Presley said. “I didn’t know if I would get the Oklahoma State offer or any Division 1 offers at that.”
It was after the class 6A state championship between Bixby and Deer Creek aired on ESPN that OSU football coaches gave him a call.
“It has always been in the back of mind but as the offers started to roll in I started to keep my options open,” he said. “I listened to every coach and every option and Coach Dunn and Coach Gundy pitched it just right.”
He will continue as a running back but also will be learning more about other positions.
Being a Muscogee athlete is something Presley takes pride in.
“I am very blessed and fortunate to be a part of the Nation,” Presley said.
Presley is wanting to major in architecture or exercise science.
Playing in the NFL is one of Presley’s long-term goals but he claimed he would like start an architecture firm or business one day.
Bixby Football Head Coach Loren Montgomery said coaching Presley has been great.
“What he has you can’t coach,” Montgomery said. “He is an electric player.”
He stated seeing his students reach this level is rewarding.
The last of the Presley siblings will be starting high school next fall with big shoes to fill.
