“We are excited to close out our 2012 recruiting class with Olivia,” Estes-Taylor said. “(Assistant coach) Mike (Adams) and I have watched Olivia grow and mature on and off the golf course for the past five years. Olivia was born and raised in Fayetteville and anytime you have an opportunity to keep a local kid home it is a great bonus. Olivia brings an incredible passion for the Razorbacks and will add a unique dimension with that regard. On the golf course, I know Olivia is making great strides with her golf swing and maturity. She is a sponge to learn and I know that Mike and I can help her continue to get the most out of her game. She has great length and gets better every time she competes. I’m excited to get Olivia into our routine and system and watch her prosper and grow.”
