Greg Olsen of Wayne Hills, N.J. is one of the Top 10 players in the country and after his makes his third official visit this weekend, he might be ready to make a decision.
The 6-foot-6, 245-pound tight end/defensive end was recently named first team all-state for both offense and defense (depending on the newspaper) and he also received the Tri-State High School Heisman Award in New York City.
With his third visit coming this weekend at Miami, Greg just might be ale to make his choice without going into the New Year.
“My trip to Notre Dame was everything I expected, it was great. My brother Chris was my host and he and some of the other players showed me a great time. Coach Willingham is just an awesome person, I really get along with him and the other coaches.”
Does Notre Dame lead?
“So far I’ve been to Tennessee and now Notre Dame, I have to say that they are both right up there. I’m going to Miami this weekend (Dec. 20) so I’ll see how that goes.”
Greg is scheduled to visit Michigan in January (Jan. 10) and also has a fifth visit that is still open.
“This weekend could be my last. I plan on sitting down with my family during the Christmas break and evaluating everything. It could come down to those three schools -- Tennessee, Notre Dame and Miami so my fourth and fifth visits might not be necessary, I’ll see after this weekend.”
Greg led Wayne Hills to a 12-0 record, a state championship and a final ranking of No. 3 in the state. From his defensive end position he had 86 solo tackles, 25 for loss, 15 sacks, 14 hurries, 12 batted down passes and four forced fumbles.
