Olson ready for new start at Clemson

Former Irmo and Stanford quarterback David Olson will play his final season at Clemson.

Irmo, S.C. (WACH)- David Olson has been a part of winning for his entire college career, and he's ready to finish it out that way.

The former Irmo quarterback spent his first four years as a backup at Stanford and has found a new home in Clemson for his final year of eligibility.

"After meeting with Coach Swinney, it was the right move for me," Olson said.

Needing depth after Chad Kelly's dismissal, Clemson found their guy.

"They needed a guy to come in and compete and win whichever spot I can win," Olson said.

Dabo Swinney named Cole Stoudt the starter after the spring, but now emerges a new challenger.

"I'm going to come out and prepare like I'm the starter," Olson said. "It's what I did at Stanford, and that's what I'll do at Clemson."

Olson is set to begin graduate courses at Clemson on May 14.
