re: Official LSU Softball Recruiting Thread: Commits & Targets
Glad to hear that. My fam up in the woodlands luckily were fine but areas literally almost right outside of it got really nasty. I hope you enjoyed your vacation.

I guess now we get watch Irma, scary stuff developing out there right now

FloSoftball is updating the 2020 rankings starting Sept 11, a brand new class ranking should be out too. LSU is expected to move into the top 3. Its a top 5 class already.

From what I am hearing from people who work for FloSoftball

Emari Frazier will make a jump, likely into the 12-18 area. She is considered one of the best hitters in the entire class. She is the real deal.

Presleigh Pilon is expected to remain in the 20-30 range. Her defense is elite. Offensively she is great too. Her freshman year was great. Hit a little over .450 with 8 homeruns, 14 doubles and 5 triples. Her potential is through the roof.

Hayden Brown will likely stay put around her area. She had a great freshman year too. Big big bat. I think she is just as powerful or even more powerful than Sydney Springfield already. She is a baller.

Laney Roos is expected to make a big jump. She has been extremely impressive this year. She literally did everything for her team between in the circle and at the plate. While she can pitch, her future here is likely in the OF. Left with a lot of powerful.

Danieca Coffey had a fantastic showing in the US Select Elite camp. A lot of people like her versatility. Good range defensively. Her footwork is nice and she gets good reads pretty quickly.

Morgan Smith should stay in the top 20. She had an amazing start to her freshman year with a sub .50 era with around an 8:1 K/BB ratio. Not only is she dominant pitching, she is showing she can hit against the best pitchers. This summer her bat has been extremely impressive.

Thanks. I'm devastated by the destruction that Irma did to Sint Maarten and Anguilla. Such beautiful places and great people. Just was there last week.

Should be a lesson to those in Florida to be ready and take this one seriously

There were a few unofficials this weekend that included Emiley Kennedy (pic) and Redoutey and another 2021 prospect, don't know her name unfortunately.


Been told we lead for Emiley Kennedy


Not sure if we offered yet. She seems to be attracting a lot of attention across the SEC lately.

re: Official LSU Softball Recruiting Thread: Commits & Targets
Yes, left handed pitcher, but also can play 1B

She has really come onto the scene this past summer. She hit a grand slam at Pgf nationals.

I have yet to see her in person but apparently she is the real deal. 18handicap will likely see her play many times this upcoming year. She attends The Woodlands hs

her bat is apparently really really good, very powerful

She is taller than Torina

I think she is 6'2

Torina loves Tall Pitchers.

I noticed she was tall. I know girls have growth spurts younger than boy's but she must be a freshman if she finishes in 2021. She may end up 6-4.

Wow, she is bigger than Hoover and Waljasper. Neither of them tower Beth like that.

I don't know who or what to believe. According to TigerBait357, Torina is a recruiting machine who only recruits studs. According to what Grindz has been posting on Robocoach, Torina sucks at recruiting and all of the girls that she is currently recruiting or which have committed all suck and are not elite; Dobson sucks and is a hitting moron and the current roster all suck (with the exception of Hoover and Walljasper) and will be lucky to win an SEC game this year.

The next 4 classes are all top ten already so not true. What the hell is he basin this on? A lot of our future commits have been dominating in travel ball and winning national all american honors.

If anything recruiting is improving from when Torina started. her classes 2013-2015 were always top 11-18. 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and even 2021 all top to bottom look much better.

I have my disareements with Dobson but he is not as bad as what people make him out to be. Yes, I think substantial adjustments are needed for some. Lets see how this season plays out.

No, we have talented players, a lot of youth for position players but talent isn't an issue. Springfield, Doyle and Andrews all have major upside and had a lot of bright moments as a freshman. Not everyone will put up Bell and Jaquish numbers immediately

I'm so done with the parents and so called fans stirring the pot. If it's who I think it is, why even? It just creates so much turmoil that doesn't need to be there. No one is perfect, but Beth has done a GREAT job. Could it be better? Always. But how about look at what she has done. The girls came here for a reason. Support them and their school. I've read some of the posts on robocoach and they are embarrassing to say the least. Someone bashing the program like Grindz is not a fan plain and simple. It's a troll.

Amen Jenn!!

I've been on there defending our staff and players and I'm just plain sick and tired of reading that crap there and on here. Lots of stuff being said that should be in house so that tells me there's a mole somewhere in the program. What the heck do some of y'all want? 4 trips to WCWS in 6 years...how many schools can say that? But if we won 6 national championships in a row, there would still be the jerks out there.

I can speak personally saying its bein investigated by people in the athletic department. LSU athletics monitors what is said online or published. Mainly the successful sports and LSU softball is one of the hottest programs on campus. LSU isn't taking this lightly either. I know for a fact the thread on robocoach is watched by people in the department and not only have our coaches seen it since this has blown up within the last two weeks, coaches all over the SEC and the country have seen it.
Apparently the FSU coaches have been keeping up on it

I know two other assistant coaches who coach in the SEC, their entire staffs watch it to see what is spilled out, regardless if its true or not.



I know some stuff but 95% of what is said in that thread is completely false and fabricated.

He's just a fruitcake. After everyone tells him what he's saying makes no sense he just keeps repeating the same thing over and over. It's more pathetic than anything.

re: Official LSU Softball Recruiting Thread: Commits & Targets
Just for everyone to know the ranking for the 2020 class starts this Monday. Originally it was suppose to start this week but its taken a little extra time to evaluate.

Monday, Sept. 18: Hot 100-91
Tuesday, Sept. 19: 90-81
Wednesday, Sept. 20: 80-71
Thursday, Sept. 21: 70-61
Friday, Sept. 22: 60-51
Monday, Sept. 25: 50-41
Tuesday, Sept. 26: 40-31
Wednesday, Sept. 27: 30-21
Thursday, Sept. 28: 20-11
Friday, Sept. 29: 10-1


Friday, Oct. 6: Class of 2020 College Rankings


Expect LSU to remain in the top 6. Two to three players are expected or could be in the top twenty. Emari Frazier, Smith, Pilon all could be top 20 with even more.

Roos is expected to make a major jump. Roo's accomplishments over the last year has made her really stand out. Kennedi could sneak into the top 30 as well. Defensively she was one of better players in travel ball this summer. Offensively she continues to improve. Plenty of pop in her bat as well. She has the ability to be in the top 20 before the final 2020 ranking.


Brown will likely stay in the same area, as well as Alison.

Obviously the staff did a great job landing Hoover, Waljasper and Smith. I do believe the program will see a dip on the mound after next year but I don't think that can be unexpected when you have two of the best 5 or 6 pitchers in the country on the same staff. The loss of Smith will make the 2019 season a tougher hill to climb.

I do think it is a fair criticism to question the position player development and production. We do not seem to have any Bell, Jaquish or Landry types in the pipeline and I am not sure I would consider any player on the current roster above average at their position. I hope I am wrong because we have massive holes to fill.

The job Beth and staff have done to this point has been program changing but you are only as good as your last year. I do think it gets tougher to try and maintain that level especially when it looks like we do not have the same caliber players coming that are going.

Smith is good but she doesn't belong in the class with the other two IMO because she can't get punch outs. She was at .5K per inning in SEC this season. I think her performance would've been closer to Czechner than Hoover/Wally if she was the ace. Long way of saying that 2019 dip would've happened anyway. That said she should excel in the Big Ten.
I'd also be stunned if we didn't add a high quality transfer P next summer.

We add Wickerham who is good I know we have something in the works for adding an additional pitcher for the following year, this staff is very aware of what will happen, losing two AA pitchers will hurt anyone.


That is also why this year, development of Sunseri and Maribeth are vital. I feel like Maribeth will turn the corner by somepoint this year. Extremely talented, has tools to be dominant. Just needs to mentally put it all together.
