Rumor is Alabama Player Skylar Wallace has entered the transfer portal. That would be a big loss. Supposedly already in contact with Washington.

re: LSU Softball Commitments/Recruiting Thread
I know this is recruiting thread but just wanted to share that I have heard Pilon, Brown and Newland are looking really good in early workouts so far! Freshmen may not be able to start or play a whole lot given what we return but the talent and competition should raise the level of play and make for some interesting position battles

The majority do but there are some that dont if their school doesnt have a very good coach. For those that dont, its typically bc they feel they can make more progress with their travel team compared to school ball.

re: LSU Softball Commitments/Recruiting Thread
Just wanted to provide a small update on the Cammenzind sisters, they are still keeping their options open but seem to be trending to Arkansas at the moment which isn't too much of a surprise since they've been there more than other other program. They are still listening to all schools though but Arkansas seems like the early favorite right now.

LSU would be fine regardless, they have addressed their needs for the 2022 class signing multiple top pitchers and a top tier catcher. Abigail Savoy is also a very solid infielder with a big bat.


LSU cannot start recruiting 2023 kids until next September but two kids I think LSU has a great shot at getting right now are Savanna Bedell out of Georgia and Maddie Mckee out of Texas.

And the Cammenzind sisters commit to Arkansas. Not surprising but wasn’t expecting them to pull the trigger this soon.

Still kinda slow in news.

2023 commit Jadyn Laneaux has tied both the single season record & career record for triples at her HS. She has over 20 extra base hits on the season so far. She already holds the record for best season BA during her freshmen season too.

I was going to get to see our commits from the Bombers play at Imperial Park last weekend ( 3 blocks from the house), but I made the mistake and went to see the LSU at Missouri game. The blackjack table at Harrahs Kansas City did help...

Seriously I'm hearing a lot of great things about our kids on that team. We are in good shape for many years.

Same, some really exciting players on the way.

I hope LSU is able to pick up Kayden Henry off that bombers team. She is really really good. They definitely have a shot from what I heard.

I saw the Bombers are playing in a College Station tourney in a few weeks. May stack that with the A$M football home game that weekend.

You and 18handicap need to update us if y'all see them play soon

I'm ready to watch them play again. I'm curious if they do only in conference games this year.

I agree and I'm also ready to coach again. I'm tired of my watching my players play all summer and fall on their travel teams while us high school coaches are restricted. A lot of us can't even work our players out during the athletic period, but I'm being told of many new restrictions on us during the spring. Retirement again doesn't look so bad.

This years roster is up. Gonna be interesting with a roster of 30, especially with traveling and playing time.

Are we expecting any freshmen to break the lineup? Pilon? Brown? Coffey?

On paper this is one of Torina's most talented classes. Obviously with the seniors returning it makes it more crowded and tight to get playing time but there are some that will definitely have the chance to play. Torina I'm sure will give kids opportunities and it will be up to them to make it count when they get on the field.

I think Hayden Brown will have a good opportunity to contribute some at catcher, especially if her bat translate like they think it can. Having another big bat in the lineup would be a big plus.

Alison Newland is one of my favorite recruits for this class. She was always so impressive when I got to watch her play for the Georgia Impact Organization over the years. . She is different from the current OF group we have in that she will provide a lot of power. I think Ali has a shot to get some at bats and playing time. Supposedly she is doing really well in practices so far.

I dont anticipate very big changes in the infield but Pilon was obviously a top recruit for a reason and played for one of the best travel ball programs in the country. She's a winner and she does a lot really well, from fielding to hitting. She has been working out at 2B but I think she will be battling it out with Tidwell.

Morgan Smith is gonna enter a pretty crowded circle but Beth will definitely give her some opportunities if she can.

I really don't anticipate many breaking a lineup this year due to what we return but I think a few have a shot to play. I think it will be challenging writing lineup cards this season.

Was unable to go watch the Bombers play unfortunately. Great writeup on the incoming class and potential impacts.

How did Kayden Henry look for the bombers? When I got to see her in person before she really stood out. I know torina definitely has her as a top choice for that 2023 class.

I really want Katie Flannery from the thunderbolts. One of the best hitters in the 2023 class. Would be a tough pull out of Alabama but we also pulled Aleah Johnson from there (her teammate). I think Strood is on that team as well.

re: LSU Softball Commitments/Recruiting Thread
Baylea is also a great pickup for us... we played her HS a couple of years ago in a tournament at Lake Travis. Her coach told her that I'm a LSU alumni and big softball fan. She introduced herself to me very politely and I said hello, but we couldn't talk about LSU since I donate and she was a commit.

She hit a monster home run against my #2 pitcher who struck her out earlier on a bunch of junk pitches. But the next time, she figured us out and launched a slow drop like she was hitting a driver 350 yards!

We're getting a good kid here!
