University of Oklahoma women’s soccer adds three transfers
NORMAN — University of Oklahoma head soccer coach Mark Carr announced three transfer additions to the 2020 Sooners.
Joining OU in the fall will be Brianna Amos from the University of Kansas, Reagan Glisson from the University of Georgia and Olivia Odle from Virginia Tech. The three will join fellow transfer Sakky Yoshida who joined the Sooners earlier this spring from the University of Oregon.
“We moved really quickly in the transfer portal to add some experience and leadership to our group,” said Carr.
“The combination of Sakky, Reagan, Olivia and Brianna injects talent and adds competition into our team immediately. Most importantly, we are getting some strong, determined young women who want to develop themselves and help build OU soccer into a national power.”

Head Coach Mark Carr on Amos: “Adding Brianna to our team for fall 2020 was a no-brainer and is the last piece of of the puzzle in providing depth and competition down our left side.
“First off, to get a top level Oklahoma student-athlete will always be a goal for us here at OU and Brianna certainly checks that box. Adding to that, Brianna is a strong student and a powerful left sided player with an incredible left foot. She can create chances and score goals for our team. Her experiences as a student-athlete in the Big 12 will be invaluable for us all. She has a desire for a new chapter and I look forward to supporting and developing her here at OU both on and off the field.”

This is something you cannot teach in a student-athlete.
“She always digs deep and will give this program everything she has. Looking at her soccer career, the timing could not be more perfect. To have her for two years at OU is really exciting. Her curiosity and desire to learn and get better will serve her and our OU program well. She will provide great leadership and experience for us after playing in the ACC. I look forward to working alongside her to help her achieve her goals and dreams here at OU.”
