2017 softball recruiting thread (Class Signed 11/9/16)

Recommended Posts

Good article.  I am hoping we can prep for the future at catcher in some of the early season games.  We are solid with Carlee and Courtney but both are seniors.  Of course softball has fall ball to help but maybe they can give some PT to the young ones, at least for players they do not plan to redshirt.

Well at least Shea is pretty stout behind the plate as well and has experience from being an everyday player. Without looking at stats, it seems she was better at the plate as well with some timely hitting. Losing Wallace is tough but at least we are not completely green back there.

Wallace hit .333, Shea .243. Wallace is a team leader and All-SEC.  http://www.auburntigers.com/sports/w-softbl/stats/2016-2017/teamcume.html

No disrespect to Shea, but this is a monstrous loss.

Recruiting isn't over just yet. Now we have to go out and find a 5* head coach. What a HUGE blow to our womens softball program.

Anyone know when signing day is for this year's class?  Very interested to see who is signed along with the position and skill mix.

Looked at Extra Inning softball verbal database published April 17 , 2018 (free).   I focused on 2019 players who should sign this year.  Not totally up to date because they had Macy Simmons listed (a highly regarded catcher/hitter) who changed to ASU earlier this spring.  Other players include: Jaylin Calvert, outfielder, Beverly Bandits. Maddie Majors, OF, Thunderbolts, Carlee McCondichie, MIF/OF, Thunderbolts. Kelley Lynche, RHP, East Cobb Bullets (Georgia) .  Madison Koepke, MIF, also East Cobb Bullets.

Currently this list shows 5 players  and we would have 5 seniors, four of whom have played a lot and likely starters next year.  I am hoping Tissier and/or one of the gals in this years signed class can shore up the catcher position.  I will add that when I attended a couple of practices that Abby Tissier was very attentive at practice and seemed to "eat up" any instruction/comments that Courtney Shea provided.  Appeared very eager to learn.

The Extra Innings Softball site list goes through 2022 I believe.
