Canisius' Qadree Ollison, who will be a senior this fall, trimmed his list of potential college destinations to five today via Twitter.
My top 5 schools in no specific order are; Penn State Pittsburgh Rutgers Syracuse Wisconsin— Qadree Ollison #⃣7⃣ (@QOllison) June 24, 2013
A total of 15 Division I (Football Bowl Subdivision) schools offered scholarships to Ollison: Penn State, Temple, Wisconsin, Syracuse, Minnesota, Indiana, Iowa, Pittsburgh, Maryland, Cincinnati, Boston College, Rutgers, Connecticut, Nevada and the University at Buffalo.
Ollison's plan, according to Canisius football sources, is to verbally commit to a school on Sept. 4, two days prior to Canisius' season-opening game at McQuaid of Rochester.
Ollison was selected (along with graduated senior Ryan Hunter) as The Buffalo News Player of the Year last season after he ran for a school-record 1,876 yards on 240 carries in the Crusaders' 11-0 season.
The Niagara Falls native’s 25 rushing touchdowns were a school record, as were his 26 total touchdowns. With career totals of 2,679 yards and 35 total touchdowns, the junior is also now 401 yards and four touchdowns away from the Canisius records in both of those categories.
