Thanks for that. The big one for me is the P from Tennessee leaving for Florida State. At least I think Arnold is a P.

Looks like our Thornhill girl is leaving with her sister,huh?

Makinzy Herzog from Florida State is now in the transfer portal. She hit .315 with a 1.56 ERA last year. It will be fascinating to see over the next several months how much and if coaches start playing fantasy football/baseball with their players. I can't see LSU bringing in a legitimate 5th starter (let's be real Thornhill was never going to see time) but it could be interesting to see how willing some schools are to drop maybe an underperforming second or third arm to add a player like Herzog.

Love Herzog, she will be missed at FSU. She was always one of my favorites playing with the Texas bombers. I am assuming A&M is the favorite at this point given the current circumstances and her main recruiter is now an assistant coach at A&M. She has a lot of potential on both sides of the ball, hard to find kids who can do It both at a high level.

I don't see LSU pissing away money on a pitcher. We have 4 already (5 if you want to add Goff), and they are planning on Wickersham and Kilponen to make major jumps this offseason. Only way they entertain the idea of adding a pitcher is if they are an all American. If we do add a transfer we are adding someone with a good bat. The summer is still young, so we will have to wait and see what happens. Torina has hinted that the incoming freshmen and next years sophomores are going to be a major part of the team next year. Good news is we return Doyle, Sunseri, Andrews, and Stewart who have all hit above .300 (minus Doyle).

re: LSU Softball Commitment List/Recruiting Info
Understandable. She’s looking for (at least) Clark, Cummins, And Tidwell to be starters. Then she’s expecting Briggs, Pleasants, Calland and Gutierrez to contribute mightily. It’s a possibility that LSU has 6 starters in the lineup that are underclassmen. And 5 starters who are brand new.

Laney Roos (2020 commit) went 2-2 against the US Junior national team this morning. Both hits came off Alabama commit Alexis Kilfoyl.

Pleasants had only 3 at bats but had 2 walks and an RBI. They play the Texas bombers gold team at 2:00.

Makinzy Herzog
wasn't recruited as a pitcher by FSU... she is a better outfielder than pitcher, but threw because she was needed and has always done a great job in the circle.

I was the bar at a local Mexican restaurant near Sienna a couple of weeks ago and her dad came over and talked to me. He confirmed my suspicion of Snider to A&M. The family really likes Snider very much... I think maybe enough to move close to home. I know that drive to Tallahassee was wearing them down.

Isn't Snider from Texas? It will be interesting to see what happens at A&M with him there. I expect he will help a bit but with Evans at the helm I remain skeptical. Seems a lot of people down there are losing patience with her. The mass exodus and bad reputation in the community seems to be catching up with her. Show leaving and completely balling out at OSU was a really bad look.



Whoever ends up getting Herzog will be a lucky team. She is a baller.

No, he's from Kentucky... but his wife is from Bellville which is about 50 miles from Aggieland and I've heard his wife wanted to make this move.

You are correct that she is a very good ballplayer.

Also you are correct about the thinning patience of Aggie softball fans. Quite a few of the parents of my former players at A&M Cons were complaining all year. They were really worked up when they got beat first game at SEC tournament in their stadium. They were lighting up my phone after they lost and then even more when the #1 softball fan in the country stayed for a couple of extra days and sat near them in the club seats. I just laughed... usually pretty easy to laugh at Aggies.

You and 357 provide interesting info. Let’s hope the new Softball facility is up and running before fall workouts!

re: LSU Softball Commitment List/Recruiting Info
357, what's going on with Schulte? Is she taking a redshirt? She wasn't honored on St. Weekend and didn't dress in postseason. I assume she's coming back.

I'm pretty sure she took a redshirt
