Olson visits Duke, next up is UVa

Cambridge (Mass.) Buckingham Browne & Nichols offensive tackle Eric Olson has been busy recently.

This past weekend the Massachusetts prospect was visiting Duke, one of the schools near the top of his list. That trip went very well and now he's poised to take a trip to another school he's high on.

"I'll be at Virginia this weekend," Olson confirmed on Tuesday. "I've been talking to coach (Jim) Reid pretty much weekly."

It will be Olson's second trip to Charlottesville. His first came earlier this year and needless to say, things went well. Otherwise he wouldn't be making a return trip.

The 6-foot-6, 265-pound offensive tackle said the Cavaliers and Blue Devils are high on his list but he's also looking at some other schools.

"Recently I got an offer from Northwestern and I really like what they've had to say and what they're all about," he said. "I still like Boston College and I'd like Stanford if they decide to offer."

Olson plans on making a decision before the start of his senior season.
