The nation’s top player has made up his mind, and he’s heading to the one of the nation’s few remaining unbeaten teams. So where is Ben Olson heading?
“I committed to BYU this Saturday,” said Olson, a 6-foot-5, 205-pound left-hander that is the top pro-style quarterback and the top overall player in the nation, according to Rivals100.com.
“After thinking long and hard about it, things just seemed to fit with BYU. It had all of the right pieces of the puzzle.”
Olson said he’s known for a little while that BYU was the right place - especially since he could feel it deep in his heart.
The decision was also made at a perfect time, as Olson’s team has reeled off six straight victories and they prepare for the playoffs.
“Now recruiting isn’t a focus and it’s the season and only the season,” Olson, who has thrown for 1,700 yards and 16 touchdowns, said. “I’ve made my commitment, and now I need to help our team win a Division I title.”
