6-foot-2, 200-pound left hand hitting 1B/LHP. Left hand hitter at the plate is an impressive presence.  Balanced stance with a double toe tap on the pitch.  Uphill swing path and quick hands and a 90 mph exit velocity.  Swing is repeatable with power.  Hit five homeruns during the live round.

6-foot-2, 200 pounds. Bats and throws left. A lot of juice in Olson's bat. Power to both gaps. Strong wrists and great extension through zone with level swing through zone but generates great back spin. Ball just flies off bat. Hard to pitch to because hands are back, and there is good plate coverage. At 1B has good feet and a strong arm. Not sure if he's a 1B or OF yet at next level, but his left handed bat will for sure play.

6-foot-2, 200 pounds. Bats and throws left. At the plate has a balanced stance and loads straight back, with a leg-kick stride. Swing is slightly uphill through the zone which produces a ton of power to both gaps. Has very good plate coverage. Lower half and upper half all work in sync. Gets very good extension through hitting zone. Produced an 89 mph exit velo off the tee. At 1B has soft hands and good feet for his size. throws from a high 3/4 arm slot and has good awareness around the bag. Threw 81 mph across the diamond. On the mound pumps hands over head to start. Square to the plate. Flies open a little to 3rd base side. Throws from a high 3/4 arm slot off two feet. Looks like he gets more leg drive from the stretch then from wind-up. Fastball was 82-83. Curveball was extremely sharp and a strikeout pitch with good 1/7 break at 68-69 mph. Ran a 7.4 laser timed 60.

6-foot-2, 200 pounds. Bats and throws left. Olson has been tearing up high school pitchers since his freshman year and has already hit 3 homeruns this year. Olson has advanced power potential. He stands in a slight crouch at the plate, and has no problem turning on any inside fastball. Olson also has a presence on the mound. Currently he has pitched 9 innings in 2016 carrying 1-0 record and has 18 strikeouts.

Big strong 1B that we are excited to see more of. Bats and throws left.  Over the weekend Olson was 9-12 with 3 homeruns and a grandslam with an incredible 16 RBI's. Shows advanced bat speed for his age, and will be in the conversation as one of the best 2018's in the state by end of next spring. High player to follow.
