re: LSU Softball Commitment List/Recruiting Info
2018 incoming pitchers

Wickersham has talent and throws really hard. She needs to improve the movement on her pitches, they tend to be flat at times but a ridiculous potential if they can clean that up. She should do well

Kilponen is legit day one starter, her pitches have great movement and she throws in the mid 60s. She has a great rise ball and screw ball.

Torina will definitely be tweaking and making adjustments to both players mechanics when they come in, to maximize their velocity and to improve the spin. Torina did the same for Walljasper and Hoover when they came in


2019

Edwards, for me is a major concern personally. She was mowing kids down years ago, clocking over 70 at one tournament. She seemed to have burned out over the years and her play has shown it. She did move to the Texas Bombers but she isn't even the ace of her HS team. Not trying to bash the kid but just being honest...

2020

Morgan Smith is big recruit, she chose LSU over UCLA, Washington, and Alabama. She swings the bat just as well but she has been hitting the upper 60's, literally close to 70 but I haven't seen her pitch since last summer.


2021

Raelin Chaffin plays for Airline right down the road. Big power pitcher and she has been successful in travel ball vs top competition. IMO arguably one of the best pitchers in the entire state this past season. Big time recruit

My source seems confident

All points to LSU at this point, but her visit to Oregon went well

I hope the source is exactly right..........I don't know much about the "transfer" but if you guys think she is an asset, I believe it.

As for the source, he would not be your source if he lies.....

Amanda Sanchez was one of the top hitters in the entire conference, batted over .370 10 homers last season and rarely struck out

She would be an instant asset, a proven one at that as well

re: LSU Softball Commitment List/Recruiting Info
Only concern would be money, there is Money available but not sure how much

Plus when she goes for her masters, which will take a couple years we should have a position open as a grad assistant for the following year

re: LSU Softball Commitment List/Recruiting Info
Interesting with the "So Cal Athletics" players listed. It seems like the SEC as a whole has had less and less California players recently.

In 2016 LSU had four players from Cal. This year they had three and are losing Walljasper.

I thought that with the West Coast's resurgence in rankings and teams making the WCWS this year it would become even less.

re: LSU Softball Commitment List/Recruiting Info
LSU has players from Cali committed these next few classes. I’ll have to update each player for where they are from.

So Cal Athletics teams usually have some of the best travel ball teams in the entire country. You normally see the top players in organizations like that, Birmingham Thunderbolts, Georgia Impact, Impact Gold

Emari Frazier recently moved over to that travel ball team but she is from Tennessee if I’m not mistaken

2019 has 2 Cali players, 3 in 2020, and just one for 2021.

re: LSU Softball Commitment List/Recruiting Info
No problem, since the 2019 girls will sign their letter of intent in less than 5 months, I can post their stats from this past season


Ciara Briggs- Batted .494 with 13 doubles, 4 triples and 8 home runs. She has had a perfect fielding percentage all 3 years at Orange Lutheran. Hopefully I didn't just jinx her.


Taylor Pleasants- Batted .592 with 13 doubles, 6 triples and 6 home runs. She she only struck out 3 times while drawing 26 walks. Slugged for a 1.168 %

Raeleen Gutierrez- Batted .412 with 6 doubles and 3 home runs. She has a career fielding percentage of .998 after all 3 year years. She hit a rough patch this season so we will see how she does this summer in travel ball

Anna Jones- She had a great year for LSA batting over .600, don't know specific percentage. Hit 9 doubles 3 triples and 2 home runs with an OBP just under .700. She was named to first team all state.

Victoria Abram- Victoria batted .535 with 19 doubles, 5 triples and 9 home runs. She also pitched a lot in the circle for her team finishing with an ERA of 1.06 with 11 wins. Named to all state first team. Her power really is coming a long, though it isn't the best competition she faces.

I literally have nothing on Taylor Edwards. She made first team all district but not as a pitcher. She was the second pitcher on De La Salle's team this past season

re: LSU Softball Commitment List/Recruiting Info
The sources I have talked to are very confident about where she is heading unless she is trying to mislead people and go the opposite direction, which I don't really see, this ain't like football recruiting lol

Should hear something very soon

Edwards didn't throw at all for her High School in playoffs this year.
You can only switch travel teams so many times before it's not the coaching.
I would be shocked if she signs with LSU
