Ollie was a fan-favorite on the popular Netflix show.
Last Chance U is a popular docuseries on Netflix that documents football players at the JUCO level as they try to get themselves back into the NCAA and eventually the NFL. The first two seasons followed players at the East Mississippi Community College who are a juggernaut when it comes to JUCO football. One of the stars from the first season of the show was defensive lineman Ronald Ollie who was seen as one of the jokers on the team. Ollie's infectious personality made him a fan-favorite on the show and after playing at EMCC, he joined Nicholls State University.
Ollie wasn't drafted this year but was invited to the Oakland Raiders minicamp. According to Complex, Ollie impressed the team so much that they ended up signing him to a contract. The news was broken by Ollie on his Twitter account.
Ollie was never asked to come to the NFL combine, although he did hold his own pro day where he recorded a 4.87-second 40-yard dash. Considering Ollie is 300 pounds, that is quite an impressive time.
Throughout his time at Nicholls, Ollie recorded seven sacks over two seasons and had 20 tackles for a loss. Clearly, the Raiders saw something special in him.
