Colfax, Wisc. - A Viking is coming to the Northland as Colfax Viking Lane Olson has committed to play college hoops for UMD.

The six-foot-six-inch senior signed his letter of intent on Wednesday. Olson says the Bulldogs were his first choice all along, adding that it helps having a family connection at UMD.

"I've had family come out of UMD and my brother goes there now. It is also closer to home so it'd be easier for my family to come up and visit. All the guys and the coaches for the team are great, they like my athleticism and my size and they most likely want me work on my three pointers and my ball handling more," says Olson.
