Looks like Miami Hurricanes football coach Al Golden isn’t too pleased with the way freshman quarterback is progressing.
“He’s got to learn the game. He’s got to be obedient to a regimen to be a quarterback and it’s got to be the same everyday. He’s got to be disciplined in terms of that. He’s not there yet,” Golden told miamiherald.com. “He hasn’t owned the process yet. He’s got to really improve the mental aspects of his game so that he can play the game fast and he’s can’t waste his time, can’t waste this year.”
Olsen was one of the top-ranked quarterbacks from the class of 2013. He played in the 2012 Under Armor All-American Game and was named one of the top 11 high school quarterbacks in the country last year.
Golden may have suggested Olsen may not be picking up the system as fast as Golden as the other quarterbacks on the team.
“He’s got to know every signal, every call,” Golden said.
Olsen had a tumultuous final season playing for his father Chris at Hills. He injured his foot in the season opener and missed seven games. The Patriots were eliminated in the second round of the state group championship tournament.
Olsen also had some legal troubles last year. He was charged with leaving the scene of an accident after he smashed his vehicle and a tree, a police report stated. The report stated that Olsen’s face appeared to have blood on it and he “appeared to be under the influence of something.”
