Super TE May Visit UM

This talented tight end is considered one of the nation's best. Read on to find out what he likes about the Hurricanes and where they rank on his current list of favorites.

At 6-foot-5 and 230 pounds, Wayne Hills, N.J. standout tight end Greg Olsen is having a banner season that proves why he's one of the nation's top-rated tight end prospects.

Offensively, Olsen has 34 receptions and 11 touchdowns. As a defensive end, he ahs 62 tackles and 12 sacks. A full academic qualifier, Olsen talked about the recruiting process.

"It's going good," Olsen said. "I have three of my official visits set up - Notre Dame on December 6, Tennessee on December 13, and Michigan on January 10. The other ones I'm looking at for the last two visits are Florida State, Miami, Syracuse, and Maryland."

Olsen, who has scholarship offers from all of his favorites, talked about the Hurricanes.

"I've always liked them because they were the first school to offer me," he said. "Way back when Butch Davis was their coach, Miami offered and that stands out to me. They've been around the whole process. Plus, they've been the best team in the country for the last three years. It would be nice to be a part of that."

Olsen had something else interesting to say about Miami.

"They were recruiting me as a defensive end earlier," he said. "But they know how much I want to play tight end and things have started to change with them. I'll most likely be a tight end if I go to Miami."

When asked about an early favorite and the possibility of joining brother Chris at Notre Dame, Greg was quiet.

"Notre Dame's a great school and it's a good opportunity there with Chris," he said. "But I have my own decision to make just like Chris did. I think I have a lot of good schools on my list and I'm really looking forward to taking my visits to find out where the best place for me is going to be."
