JUCO DT Has Two Early Offers

With two offers in hand, East Mississippi DT Ronald Ollie (6-3, 315) is a player to keep an eye on this offseason...

"I currently have offers from Memphis and Southern Mississippi," Ollie told JCFootball.com recently. "I talked to Troy yesterday and I have been talking to Utah State a lot too, but neither one of them have offered me."

As a freshman last season, while working into the Lions' interior defensive line rotation, Ollie racked up 20 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 2.5 tackles-for-loss and two fumble recoveries.

"I top the run, but I can pass-rush if I have to or if I get a one-on-one but I'm usually double teamed during the pass-rush," Ollie noted.

Ollie enjoyed a solid prep career at Wayne County High School in Waynesboro, Mississippi, but he didn't take the ACT or SAT, so he needed to find a place to play this past fall and East Mississippi was the right place for him.

"I don't like losing, so that's why I chose (East Mississippi)," Ollie said.

The talented defensive lineman is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2015 football season.
