COLUMBUS — Ohio State women’s basketball coach Kevin McGuff has announced the signing of transfers Kianna Holland and Shayla Cooper.

Both will be eligible to begin playing in Buckeyes games next December at the conclusion of the fall semester.

Cooper, a 6-2 forward from Norcross, Ga., was rated the 12th best at her position and the No. 35 overall player by ESPN last season. She played two games for Georgetown this season, totaling 32 points and 17 rebounds. Cooper will have three years of eligibility left.
