Thousand Oaks, Calif., quarterback Ben Olson recently completed the Elite 11 Quarterback Camp.
He came away of the event by leaving a lasting impression on all in attendance that he might just be the nation’s top pro-style quarterback.
"It was a great experience for me," Olson said. "I really learned a lot from coach (Bob) Johnson and Carson (Palmer) was great, too."
The 6-foot-5, 205-pound Rivals100-team selection is receiving recognition from not just the camps but also college coaches from across the country.
"I have my list narrowed down to seven – Stanford, Michigan, USC, Oklahoma, Tennessee, BYU and UCLA," he said. "We will see if I can get that narrowed down to five. I like all of them so it will be hard."
Olson has already seen the campuses of a couple of his favorites.
"I went to BYU and Stanford," he said. "Those were both a lot of fun. It was great to go up there and see some the coaches in person."
Olson said he has offers from all seven of his leaders not to mention countless others. He also said the recent reports of him leaning toward BYU or to UCLA might not be exactly correct.
“I know what UCLA has to offer, and I’ve been to BYU,” he said. “But I’m not at the point where I would say either one of those teams are my leaders. I want to take some visits and see what all of the teams have to offer.”
