Since they didn't even have any minutes played for her first two seasons , I'm guessing they still have a bug in that part of the software .

Olivia finally got a rating and ESPN shows USC with a commit. 3 star/89, #65 PG. Guess Dan Olson got a glimpse of her back in July. Nice write up:

I am surprised that she committed to being a preferred walk on although she has another year to up her stock. Is she a D1 talent?

I do not believe she was ranked or had any major offers. I bet she had offers to smaller schools though.

Just looking at her highlights, her range extends pretty far behind the arc. I think it will be an uphill battle to get on the floor and that designated spot up shooter role of the bench is probably what she's angling for. Don't think she handles it well enough to do much else.

USC isn't exactly the easiest place to get time at one of the two guard spots these days or going forward.

She may have a lottery scholarship or wealthy parents, so attending USC May trump another school with a basketball scholarship.

As far as 3 point shooting, is she more Tina Roy or Lindsay Spann.... Roy was very streaky, she would miss a lot and then BOOM, suddenly rattling off 5-6 straight threes. Spann on the other hand, just didn’t miss much at all, a pure knockdown shooter who could legitimately shoot 6+ threes a night while only taking 10 or so shots. I’m still peeved about her injury, she was on track for a GREAT year at South Carolina.

I have no answer for that one.

Last year she hit 38% of 274 3PA according to Max Preps.

I can tell you from highlight clips that her range extends well beyond the high school three point line, because the highlights have lots of examples of her making 3s beyond the defense, well behind the arc.

But whether she can come into an SEC game and make spot up uncontested threes consistently, I don't know.

I'd simply caution that Spann and Roy had offers coming out of high school whereas Thompson does not. So I'm taking a whatever she ends up contributing is pure gravy kind of approach.

I have heard that she has an academic scholarship currently and was told that she's likely to get an athletic scholarship after her freshman year.
***edit*** and for what it's worth I know a couple folks who have watched a few of her games and say that she absolutely controls the game at times
