Coach Bob Boldon announced Wednesday that Ohio has brought on redshirt freshman transfer Caitlyn Kroll.
Kroll, who’s transferring from Saint Francis, won’t be eligible to play next season because of NCAA transfer rules. She will be eligible to play during the 2019-20 season.
Kroll didn’t play in her freshman season at Saint Francis because she suffered a knee injury during her senior year of high school. Last season, Kroll averaged 13.4 points per game on 40.7 percent shooting from the field. Kroll shot 32.6 percent from the 3-point line. Kroll was named the Northeast Conference Rookie of the Year last season, and she was named to the conference’s third team.
Though Kroll won’t be able to play in the upcoming season, she has the potential to fit well in Ohio’s system. A 5-foot-10 guard, Kroll brings versatility. She averaged 4.2 rebounds per game last season, ranking fourth on the Red Flash for the category.
Boldon’s team is composed of players who can play multiple positions on both ends of the floor, and with Kroll’s size, she can add to the flexibility of Ohio’s lineups.
