Cincinnati Winton Woods point guard Dayeesha Hollins has orally committed to play basketball at the University of Michigan .

Hollins, who is 5-feet-7, is considered the premier point guard in the state’s 2009 class, according to Ohio Girls Basketball Report executive director Tom Jenkins.

Hollins, who was a Cincinnati Enquirer Division I first-team selection last season, averaged 11.7 points, 3.4 steals, 3.3 rebounds and 2.9 assists for the Warriors. She was third-team all-Southwest District and Fort Ancient Valley Conference Buckeye division player of the year.

Jenkins said Hollins has the ability to get by defenders off the dribble and is relentless on the defensive end.

“The Big 10 historically has recruited to win the conference and has not had much success in the NCAAs when pitted against southern or northeast teams with lightning quick guards,” Jenkins said.

“The new coaching staffs in the Big 10 recognize this and there is a change being made to compete against these teams with lightning quick guards. Without question, Dayeesha is a great fit for Michigan given the metamorphosis the conference is undergoing.”

Hollins also considered Cincinnati , Xavier , Minnesota , Boston College , Pittsburgh and Wisconsin among others, according to the Enquirer.

Winton Woods finished 23-2 overall and 10-0 in the conference last season. Winton Woods has won or shared the league title four consecutive seasons in the Buckeye division.

Jenkins said Hollins will make her teammates better this winter because of all the attention she will draw on the floor.

“Her competitive fire is contagious,” Jenkins said. “It will be interesting to see if Dayeesha’s competitiveness spreads throughout her team her senior season.”

Hollins was also an all-city track athlete this spring. She finished fifth in the 400-meter dash at the state meet in June.
