COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State women’s basketball head coach Kevin McGuff has announced the signing of sophomore transfer guard Sierra Calhoun.

Calhoun, a 6-0 guard from Brooklyn, N.Y., played 13 games as a freshman at Duke last season before leaving the university. She started all 13 games and averaged 10.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game.

“I’m incredibly excited to add Sierra Calhoun to the Ohio State women’s basketball family,” said McGuff. “She is an outstanding person who will add a tremendous amount to our program both on and off the court. She should be a terrific fit as we continue our march toward national prominence in women’s college basketball.”

Calhoun will redshirt during the 2015-16 season while fulfilling transfer requirements and will be eligible at the beginning of the 2016-17 season. She will have three seasons of eligibility remaining.

A McDonald’s and WBCA All-American at Christ The King High School in New York, Calhoun scored nearly 1,900 points and grabbed 700 rebounds in her high school career. She was named the USA Today New York Player of the Year as a senior when she averaged 24.0 points and 9.3 rebounds per game. Calhoun was rated the No. 7 recruit in the 2014 class by Prospect Nation and No. 13 by All Star Girls Report.
