Ollison finished his high school career at Buffalo's Ralph Wilson Stadium, rushing for 240 yards and five touchdowns on 20 carries to help Canisius High (Niagara Falls) win a state title. He redshirted behind James Conner in 2015 before having to step in for the older back after he suffered a knee injury and, eventually, received a cancer diagnosis. Ollison performed well given the situation, earning second-team All-ACC and conference rookie of the year honors (212-1,121-5.3, 11 TD rushing; 14-77-5.5, one TD receiving in 13 games, 12 starts). His production dropped off significantly the next two seasons, starting 2 of 13 games in 2016 (33-127-3.8, two TD rushing) and 8 of 12 games in 2017 (90-398-4.4, five TD rushing; 17-186-11.8 receiving). He returned to form in 2018, splitting carries with Darrin Hall but still earning second-team All-ACC honors by rushing for 1,213 yards and 11 touchdowns on 194 totes (6.3 average) in 14 starts.

Priority free agent
Overview
Ollison is a big, upright runner who lacks adequate short-area quickness and acceleration teams look for in the draft. He will need to become more punishing behind his pads in order to stand out in camp and earn a roster spot.
Strengths
  • Tall, athletic frame for a runner
  • Comes from athletic lineage; both of his parents were college basketball players
  • Continued on with good attitude and work ethic after diminished role following freshman year
  • Build-up speed to race to corner once he's able to turn over his long strides
  • Strong-arms tacklers to the ground before they get to him on the chase
  • Shows ability as outside zone runner from I-formation
  • Power and balance to create yardage for himself after contact
  • Flashed intriguing ability as lead blocker in space on sweeps
  • Takes care of the football and doesn't put it on the ground
Weaknesses
  • Stiff in hips and knees
  • Leaves yardage on the field due to subpar vision
  • Hesitant and needs clear point of entry before hitting gas
  • Slow to gather and cut for access to backside lane
  • Awkward and lacks effectiveness in shaking second-level tacklers
  • Needs to use his size to punish defenders when finishing
  • Technique in pass pro is not where it needs to be
