her family all are fantastic people



Recruiting will be slow until January/February


Does anyone have any questions about the 2019/2020 classes?

LSU had 2020 2021 and 2022 prospects on campus for unofficials yesterday


Some were commits and some are top prospects undecided, I'll post names once I find out.

Word on the street is that LSU leads for one of the top 2022 prospects who is a power hitter out of Texas

More details will come soon

Top 2022 prospect out of California Zoe Karam has LSU in her final five


Zoe exploded onto the scenes this summer hitting 7 homeruns off the nations best pitchers


Plays for the firecrackers organization. She plays primarily 1B but can play anywhere on the infield. One of the elite defenders in her class.


UCLA seems to be the favorite, she hasn't been on campus yet so who knows


She has already had unofficals to OU, A&M and UCLA

I know who was here, but I'll defer to you as I keep my conversations private in respect to those whom I visit with.

Should be an impact on her HS team in a couple of years. Chapel Hill (Tyler) was 13-7 last year. Shes doing good by going to Metroplex to play travel ball as her area is weak. Looking forward to seeing her in HS and hopefully LSU.

I have seen her play 6 or 7 times in the last year. She is very good. Quick, big strong and athletic.

Pretty eclectic mix of P5 and G5 schools recruiting her. Where did you get the information on the schools recruiting her? It has been my experience that much of this is hyped up information provided by travel ball coaches. I would doubt that this many schools are really "recruiting" her. It is more likely that they told her or her travel ball coach that they would like for her to come to one of their camps and that translates into that they are recruiting her.

She has stated what schools are recruiting her. She has been asked to come in for unofficial visits to all these schools. Some of my sources come from travel ball coaches and coaches in college. I know assistant coaches in the SEC and Pac12 conferences. She had actual offers from most of these schools. The amount of the scholarship she received from each one I don't know.

Yes that many schools start to recruit at this level if you are considered an elite prospect. Programs will role out the red carpet if you are an elite prospect.


Maci Bergeron who is a commit in the 2022 class has been offered ACTUAL scholarships to OU, Alabam, ULL, A&M, Florida, and other pac 12 schools because she is one of the top players in the country.

Now there are restrictions so a lot of times the coaches can't actually reach out directly. They can send a questionnaire card letting the athlete know that they are of interest to that school. Between that and work put in between coaches and school officials, unofficals are set up and then it takes off.

Unfortunately in order to develop relationships between top players to land them, the process starts this early unfortunately.

Lots of good connections from her travel ball coaches to LSU.
Jazz Jackson played for LSU! The others are also high school coaches and an athletic director who like LSU softball very much.

Those connections and the good will that Beth and her staff have throughout the softball world give us a great advantage in recruiting and I like it!!

Definitely


I am not 100% sure but isn't Bianka Bell a coach for a travel ball program as well? The more former LSU players in the coaching ranks, the better for us.

Beth literally has a pipeline starting to form in Tennessee and Georgia. LSU is in the mix for a lot of top prospects here too.

A lot of our future prospects/commits are from these two states.


Within the last couple years Beth has established an excellent relationships with some of the Southern Cal programs.

Ciara Briggs (2019 commit) parents coach some of the teams and they definitely are a major positive now for LSU recruiting. They promote LSU any chance they have. Some of the 2020/2021/2022 prospects in California are now throwin LSU in the mix. I am pretty excited to see where all these connections take us over the next few years.

I'll tell you what, recruiting is at a completely different level. Not that we didn't recruit well before but top to bottom these classes over the next 4 years are loaded with elite talent.

Not sure if I am the only one who notices but it looks like Beth is adding a lot more power hitters in the future classes. When I spoke with Beth this fall she mentioned she wanted to see more homeruns and extra base hits.

re: Official LSU Softball Recruiting Thread: Commits & Targets
Madison Dobbins commits to Georgia Tech (2021 prospect)

I'll keep her on the list for now but still an excellent player. Not sure if we will add anyone else to 2021 class as of now. We have 6 commits

3 infielders (Brandon, Peterson, Madrey)
2 outfielders (Redoutey, holmes)
1 pitcher (chaffin)

Not sure if we will add a catcher in this class, we add one of the top 2020 catchers and we have the #1 catcher for 2022 committed



Also a few rumors around that an elite player in the PAC 12 has heavy interest in transferring to LSU next year. A lot of transfers are in the works for a while but Its hard to obtain info on people want to transfer, its usually kept hush hush. I'll keep an eye out on it.

We will have a lot of top recruits on campus in January


Last update is LSU is still recruiting other pitchers for the 2019 class, not sure what that means for Taylor Edwards. Last couple of years have been extremely shaky for her but it seems like she is currently working hard at the moment. Beth has pulled schollies before if the players failed to maintain their commitments so it will be interesting to see.

A lot of this is kept hush hush for a reason. Starts with our Gestapo compliance office.... so I don't get my hopes up until the I's are dotted and the T's are crossed.
