    Correction, playing now but flying around the country to play where there's no snow!
    First home game in East Lansing is 3/25!
    :eek:

    Graduated early to enroll early? A rarity, but props for that effort.

    Just some fun information that I just found out.... Jayda coleman who is the #1 ranked player in the nation in the 2020 class and an Oklahoma commit is the girlfriend of Texas football commit Billy Bowman Jr. Would have been nice for him to convince her to bring her talents to Texas.

    Ryleigh White:

    Talking Texas with 2020 Softball Commit Ryleigh White

    “I de-committed from the University of Tennessee and committed to Texas for the huge opportunity to play for and learn from Coach Mike White,” White said. “I am so excited to play with the best. It doesn’t get any better than Coach Spencer, Coach Singleton, and Coach White.”

    Ryleigh White is a 6’1” right-handed pitcher and she has been a machine for the Blue Eagles at Immaculate Heart Academy. She hit over .400 in each of her first three seasons, for a total of 93 RBI’s in just 100 hits with 29 home runs. Those numbers are all outstanding, but she’s known mainly as an ace on the mound.

    In her high school career, she has an earned run average under 1. During her junior season, she went an incredible 20-2 with an ERA of 0.67 and 277 strikeouts. She allowed just 40 hits in 136 innings pitched.

    Based on that quick video Washington is a power hitter and will do wonders in the lineup with a little coaching from Singleton

    Found this video of Ryleigh White from a game she had last week. She doesn't start but comes in the game as a relief at 1:00:50 :hookem:

    Adding another member to the 2020 recruiting class. I wonder if there will be enough playing time to keep every one happy? Plays SS. Brings some great numbers at the plate but not against D-1pitching.

    I wish I knew how the softball "machinery" works. As a pure fan, I wonder:
    1) How does Mike White and his staff know what type of player she is?
    2) Did they pore over 4 years of tape of her at TLU? (doubtful)
    3) Is she a pure practice player?
    4) Did she contact the coaches and say, "I'll pay my own way. I'll even shag balls. I just want to experience this level of softball"?

    Not to besmirch her play, but out of the blue players like this, makes we wish I knew what went into this transaction.

    Based on the article that was provided she is very fast and went 31-31 in stolen bases so it seems like she will be more of a tuesday dermargosian type player who is mainly used for a base runner. I don't expect her to get any significant playing time at short stop but she is very fast so it was a good move.

    If she is good defensively I could see her getting some time at short. With Miranda Elish pitching you could DP for her and let Miranda hit for herself.

    Based on the recruits I'm seeing us get I can tell we have a type. We go after true athletes, also most seems to have a different kind of competitive spirit that lacked from previous teams.
