    Going to be a big day. Unsure if I've ever seen such a big signing class:

    Jayden (JJ) Smith 1B/3B/C/SS George Ranch High School, Richmond, Texas
    Bailey Williams SS/OF from Murrietta Valley, CA
    Kyleigh Sand IF/OF from Norco, CA
    Ryleigh White, RHP, Washington Township, New Jersey
    Alyssa, Washington, SS/C, Abilene, TX
    Carlee Ratcliff, 3B/IF, New Boston, TX
    Jordyn Whitaker, 3B/P, Jacksonville, TX

    Let's hope we end up with 7.

    Especially Bailey Williams - what a great looking swing from the left side.

    Scratch Kyleigh Sand off the list. She signed with Louisiana Lafayette.

    Did anyone expect this? I thought she was committed to Texas

    Piecing her history on this thread:

    1) was committed to DePaul
    2) learned that she was committed to Texas based on someone's contribution to this thread
    3) that information was based on her club team's web site

    I don't think she has a twitter/IG account, so her "commitment" may have been hearsay. Or, a last minute change of plans by either Texas or the player.

    That's why I said "I hope we end up with 7".

    Still haven't seen any confirmation about
    Jayden (JJ) Smith 1B/3B/C/SS George Ranch High School, Richmond, Texas or
    Bailey Williams SS/OF from Murrietta Valley, CA
    as signing today with Texas?

    NB you want to jump in here?

    Looks like Bailey Williams is the lone unknown out there. And looks like often the case is their club team is a good source of did-she-sign-or-not?

    The Redlands Daily Facts had an article yesterday on that area's athletes expecting to sign Letters Of Intent and Bailey Williams was listed as a U. of Texas softball recruit.

    Softball is the only remaining sport on the official Texas website, Texassports.com, that has not reported or issued a statement naming all its 2020 recruiting signees? Appears Coach White has an issue in finalizing this recruiting class?

    Possibly some last minute flips away or towards us. We'll see what we see I guess.

    The San Bernadino paper published a list of softball signees from area high schools
    this morning and Bailey Williams was not listed for Texas or any other college. I checked and other athletes from her high school were included, so.........??

    I did find it odd that we saw tweets about Bailey making her official visit to Texas last month, but nothing from Sand (considering they are teammates from California).

    As it appears Jordyn Whitaker was our last pledge, I'm happy it worked it for her and Texas (if there were scholarship fund issues in taking more than 6 players).

    It appears all of our 2020 commits were at the Longhorn camp this last weekend!
