Ellise Foreman, who spent last season at NCAA Division I Oral Roberts, has transferred to Oklahoma Christian to continue her collegiate soccer career, OC coach Meagan Anderson said Tuesday.

Foreman, a 5-foot-5 midfielder from Mustang, appeared in four matches in 2019 for ORU, recording her first shot on goal against Arkansas-Pine Bluff. She played in high school for current OC assistant coach Lindsay Riggs and was part of Mustang’s team that finished as the Class 6A runner-up in 2018.

She also started on Mustang’s basketball team that stunned nationally ranked Putnam City West in the 6A state tournament in 2019, advancing to the semifinals.

“Ellise is a player we wanted to see make OC home out of high school and we are thrilled she has made that decision now,” Anderson said. “We will look for Ellise to be a big asset to us in the middle of the field. With her knowledge and vision of the game, she will be a big addition for us in the middle.

“We continue to look at ways we can get to the next level and Ellise is a piece of the puzzle to make that work. We will use her experience and competitiveness to drive that force.”

Foreman’s father, Robert Foreman, is a former OC men’s basketball assistant coach (1995-1997) and now is the athletic director for Mustang Public Schools.

OC will open the 2020 regular season on Sept. 8 at home against Southern Nazarene.
