2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: Brian Olson played his high school ball and was a three-time letter winner at Tahoma High School. He stayed near home and went to Seattle University. He played there four years and was Team MVP and All Conference his final two seasons. At his best, Olson is a solid gap-to-gap hitter with doubles power though many believe he can develop more home run power in time. However, it is his defense that gets attention from the scouts. He has a strong and very accurate arm. He is athletic behind the plate and has real quick releases. He’s smart and will work well with his pitchers.
