Olsen nears decision

<P>It's down to crunch time for 5 star tight end prospect Greg Olsen. Olsen had a visit from the Miami offensive coordinator last night. He has Ty Willingham coming very soon. Can we expect a decision soon? </P>

When I caught up with Greg, the Miami offensive coordinator had just left the house. "It was real good. It was a nice visit. We just talked about how I fit into the offense."

So what are Greg's plans? "I have Coach Willingham coming on Tuesday. I then have the tight end coach from Tennessee coming on Friday. I will probably decide in a week or so."

Chris Olsen Sr. told me the decision would probably come sooner than that in a previous conversation so I asked Greg about that. "It could happen, I could decide later in the week. I am just not sure when I will decide."

Notre Dame and Miami seem to be his top two schools. I asked Greg if all three schools were still in it at this point. "Ahhh, yeah, I think so. As of right now, I will have the Tennessee coach come by on Friday."

Comments. I think Greg is down to Notre Dame and Miami. I bet the Tennessee visit never happens. Tyrone Willingham should have the last word on this. I think the Irish will land him.
