The U.S. Army All-American Bowl and the Under Armour All-American Game each have offered O’Leary a roster spot. He has not yet decided which invitation he will accept.

O’Leary (6-4, 220) caught 25 passes for 437 yards and six touchdowns during the regular season last year. He is considered one of the top, if not the No. 1, tight end recruit in the nation.

Last season, this area produced seven all-America picks:
