Olson Enjoys WFU Visit

David Olson, a junior quarterback out of Irmo High in Columbia, South Carolina, took an unofficial visit to Wake Forest a week ago when the Demon Deacons hosted Duke. DeaconSports caught up with Olson for his thoughts on his visit to Winston-Salem.

"It was great," David Olson said of his visit to Wake Forest this past weekend. "I was pretty impressed with the way the stadium felt. It looked like it would be a small school feel but when it got going it was like an SEC atmosphere. I like the way the fans were into it."

Olson also had the opportunity to speak with the Wake Forest coaches. "I got to talk to Coach Elrod before and after the game. We talked a little and he said he wants me to come to a junior day in February and spring practice and a camp."

Along with Olson's visit to Wake Forest, he has been to Auburn, Clemson, and Duke on visits. Virginia Tech has also asked him to visit for their rivalry game against Virginia on November 29th which he will attend.

"I went to Virginia Tech's camp this summer and talked to Coach O'Cain. He was impressed with how I threw and said I could be good. He's been real interested. Duke is sending letters but I haven't talked to the head coach and the same with Georgia Tech. With Auburn, my dad knows the running back coach because my brother had an offer from there so he's been interested." Additionally, Clemson's staff was showing heavy interest in Olson prior to Coach Bowden's departure.

Olson is the brother of Aram Olson, a 2006 football signee with Ohio State. Like his older brother and most Irmo players, David is utilized sparingly as a junior but is expected to play a big role as a senior.

"We started off rocky," Olson said of his team's season to date. "We came out 0-2 which is really uncommon for Irmo. We just won our region [last] Friday. We sealed that and will probably be a #2 in the playoffs and hopefully do well."
