Early years

Ogbuehi attended Allen High School in Allen, Texas, where he was a two-time all-state selection. In his junior year, Ogbuehi was the best blocker for an offense that averaged 36.1 points and 225 rushing yards per game, finishing the season 15–1 with a UIL state championship.

He was an Associated Press second-team all-state pick and unanimous first-team all-district honoree. He played in the 2010 U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

Regarded as a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, Ogbuehi was ranked as the No. 13 offensive tackle recruit in his class.[1] He chose Texas A&M over offers from Nebraska, Kansas, Texas Tech, and Oklahoma State.

As a senior in 2014, he received first team All-America honors from the Walter Camp Football Foundation.[3]
