Eric Olson (Sudbury, Mass./Buckingham, Browne & Nichols) entered prep school as a basketball player, but will graduate as one of the top offensive linemen in New England.

The 6-foot-6, 270-pound offensive tackle has scholarship offers from Boston College, Connecticut, Duke, Massachusetts, Virginia and Wake Forest. Olson said he also hears regularly from Michigan, Northwestern and Stanford.

"I love Duke and UVA, and when BC offered they entered the mix as well," Olson said. "UConn has the best facilities of any school I've been to, but academically I can't put them in the same class as some of the others.
