Offensive lineman Eric Olsen out of Brooklyn (N.Y.) Poly Prep now has five scholarship offers.
The 6-foot-5, 300-pounder has offers from Northwestern, Kansas, Pittsburgh, Maryland and Syracuse.
Most recently Olsen gained offers from Maryland and Syracuse.
"The facilities at both schools are unbelievable; Coach Greg Robinson and Ralph Friedgen were very impressive."
Just two weeks ago Olsen made a trip up to see the Orange.
"The Carrier Dome is unbelievable," he said. "Coach Robinson is a great guy and the facilities there are awesome."
Does Olsen have any favorites?
"I don't have any leaders right now, I'm interested in a lot of schools and I just have to visit to see which ones I see myself at," he said. "My top eight schools right now are Miami, Michigan, Maryland, Notre Dame, Syracuse, Virginia, Boston College and Texas."
This spring Olsen is lifting weights and playing lacrosse to stay in shape.
"Lacrosse is going good, I'm the leading scorer on the team," he said. "Weight lifting is also going well and we have started a whole program with different phases and the team is really sticking to it. I can tell that I made some improvements since last year because my bench and squat have improved."
With all the work for him and the team, does the lineman have any expectations for next season?
"Now that I'm a senior, I'm hoping to take over this team," he said. "Hopefully we can go undefeated. I hope I can just dominate and continue my streak of not giving up a sack in my career and just keep pancaking people."
As for what position he'll play, that's still a question mark.
"I'm being looked at as an offensive tackle, but some schools want to move me to guard," he said. "They want to move me because they like the way I pull and my athleticism."
This summer Olsen isn't sure on which camps he'll attend, but he is looking at Michigan, Notre Dame, Miami and Boston College.
Olsen should easily qualify with a solid 3.0 GPA.
The offensive lineman was named offensive player of the year on the team as a junior.
