Per @TNTeamPride on Twitter, 5’8″ guard DeAndrea “Ollie” Sawyers has committed to Kennesaw State University for the 2013-14 season. She played her high school ball at Hunter’s Lane High School in Nashville Tennessee.
Here is what the Tennessee Team Pride website says about Sawyers,
Ollie is a strong, athletic, versatile guard who can play three different spots on the floor if necessary. Ollie is an excellent transition player who gets from end to end with extraordinary speed with the ball and finishes well around the basket. In the half court Ollie is a very good downhill slasher who can penetrate through contact and finish. Ollie has worked hard on her shooting and footwork over the last year and is a good three point shooter. Ollie is a solid ball handler who is tough to pressure because of her willingness to use her body to fend off and drive past defenders. Ollie is an aggressive, physical defender who causes problems for offensive players with her defensive style. Ollie anticipates well off the ball and gets steals by getting into passing lanes and helping from the weakside. Ollie is an excellent rebounder from the guard spot and almost always gets rebounds that are in her area.
