Ollie Has Spring/Summer Plans

With two offers in hand, East Mississippi DT Ronald Ollie (6-3, 315) is a player has two early offers and several more programs talking to him...

"I still just have my offers from Memphis and Southern Mississippi, but I have a lot of interest from some other schools," Ollie told JCFootball.com recently. "Troy wants me to visit this summer and Utah State is after me too. Alabama is talking to me a lot right now too.

"I'm going to visit Alabama on May 31st and I'm looking at visiting the other schools that are interested in me, but those will probably be after I finish up school for the quarter."

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 stop 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 said in April.

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.
