Mike Olson Commits to Wake Forest

From Josh Barr's Blog...

Another Stone Bridger Is ACC Bound

While the Thompsons wait to reach their decision, a teammate has made his choice, reports colleague (and Stone Bridge pom-pom waver) B.J. Koubaroulis, who passes along this report:
Stone Bridge junior Mike Olson orally committed to play football at Wake Forest.

Olson, a 6-foot-3, 185-pound linebacker, accepted his first official offer after visiting the Winston-Salem, N.C. campus last weekend.

"He was ready to take [the offer] because, when he went down and visited, he really liked it," said Stone Bridge football coach Mickey Thompson.

Olson had been to junior days at N.C. State, Virginia, Boston College and Syracuse, without receiving an official offer, but the Demon Deacons expressed interest in Olson during Thompson's visit to Winston-Salem with his twin junior sons - quarterback Patrick and defensive end Zach.

"I came back and told him he needed to go down there and visit," Thompson added. "He really liked Wake, so he went ahead and pulled the trigger."

Olson recorded 103 tackles (71 first hits, 32 assists) and four sacks and helped No. 6 Stone Bridge (14-1) win the Virginia AAA Division 5 title this past season.

Olson is the third Stone Bridge junior to commit to an ACC school. Previously, defensive end Brian Slay picked North Carolina State and offensive line David Wang chose Virginia Tech.
