Flosoftball will be doing their hot 100, unveiling 10 a day from Sept. 5th to Sept. 17th. Starting with 100-91. I'll keep you posted of where OU recruits stand. As far as I know we have 3 2020 recruits committed. Jayda Coleman(Texas Glory), Destiny Nourey(OC Batbusters), and Paige Knight(Tulsa Elite). I'll be surprised if they are not all in the the hot 100 with Coleman in the running for the #1 spot.

Looks like we have another 2020 commit. Shows her to be OU commit on twitter even though account is private. Tiare Jennings. Looks like she plays shortstop for 14U OC Batbusters. Here is a link to the twitter page.

https://twitter.com/_tiarejennings

So here is a list of known 2020 commits

Jayda Coleman-IF/OF
Paige Knight-P/3B
Nicole May-P/3B
Destiny Noury-MIF
Tiare Jennings-SS

All are on the Flosoftball Hot 100 list. They start their countdown on Monday with Players 100-91. If I missed a commit someone knows about let me know. I have a feeling this is going to be another very highly rated class. Thought I'd spread some good news after our football game.

Hot 100 has done 100 down to 71. No Sooners so far. Hopefully it just means they are all ranked really high. Here is a uncommitted girl that has Oklahoma in the list of interested teams. Left handed pitcher that our coaches like.

72--Claire Davidson, P/UT… Vienna Stars (uncommitted)
Claire is a lefty pitcher and power hitter who led the Stars to a Top 10 finish at PGF Platinum Nationals this summer. She batted .439 with an OPS of 1.263 with 11 homers--including three grand slams--while shining at PGF hitting .462 with a 0.45 ERA (1.49 for the summer). Claire throws in the low 60's and has excellent accuracy and movement on her pitches. She also possesses good speed and a strong arm in the outfield while being able to play a stellar defensive first base. She's had heavy recruiting interest from top programs like Auburn, Oklahoma, Florida State, Duke and Penn State and could decide by the end of the year.

Here is an uncommitted kid from Oklahoma. Another local pitcher.


71--Janelle Marwitz, P… Gametime Stars (uncommitted)
Janelle is a ball-spinning right-handed pitcher who makes it hard for batters to get a good pitch to hit. She hits 63 mph in addition to her spins which helped her compile a 36-5 record this year and in 243 innings produced 208 K's. Janelle helped the Stars finish in the Top 10 at USA Elite Select and Top 17 at PGF Nationals through her pitching and hitting, which included a 1.232 OPS this year. Her older sister, Jennifer, is a sophomore outfielder for the Kansas Jayhawks and Janelle's recruiting is starting to increase now in part because she has already posted a 24 on the ACT.

Bottom 51 done. Still no actuall commits to Oklahoma yet but here are a few of interest.

55--Lauryn Carter, OF… So Cal Choppers - Fausett (uncommitted)
Coaches believe that Lauryn has become one of the top players in the talented Choppers organization and that's saying something as Gary and Dean Fausett's program is loaded with D1 talent. She has a younger sister, Brooklyn, who is already being sought after along with Lauryn. The older sibling is built like a football player and is a 5-tool athlete who hits for power and average while adding great speed and a powerful arm in the outfield. She can throw the ball 220 feet from fence to home plate and her abilities have her being sought after by major colleges across the nation including Oklahoma, Michigan and Cal.


60--Aailyah Brown, SS/3B… Oklahoma Ultimate 02 (uncommitted)
Aailyah is one of the most dangerous power-hitters in the 2020 class and has hit too many tape-measure bombs to count. When she was 10 she hit a home run at the ASA Hall of Fame Stadium that landed on the warning track of the 300-foot men's fence. She also comes up clutch in key moments such as this summer when she hit a game-tying blast in a PGF Qualifier that allowed Ultimate to eventually win a berth as a first-year 14U team. This spring, despite being pitched around frequently, Aailah batted .520 with 22 home runs. She also led the team with 39 walks and a .638 on-base percentage. The freshman is getting strong interest from several Big 12 schools.

Flo Softball just revealed 50-41 so we're down to top 40. No Oklahoms commits. 1 person of intrerest.

45--Lauren Boyd, P/UT… St. Louis Esprit 18 -- Huecker (uncommitted)
Lauren is from Union, Missouri--a small rural town 30 miles west of St. Louis--but she is known to top college programs around the country after having a strong year at top events including PGF Nationals, the USA Elite Select Championship and Boulder IDT. Lauren is a multi-position talent in that she can pitch consistently in the 64-65 mph range and also play at a high level at shortstop where she batted .468 in the 18U division this year. She has a fierce competitive work ethic and one Big Ten scout says, "Lauren is a baller, she just loves to compete." Programs showing interest include Oklahoma, Michigan, Mizzou, Arizona, Northwestern, Arkansas, Louisville, Iowa and Minnesota.

26--Paige Knight, P/3B… Tulsa Elite (Oklahoma)
Paige is a 5-foot-10, athletic talent who can do it all: she can crush the ball, has a huge arm, and possesses good speed. She hit in the 3-hole this summer for the Tulsa Elite which had top 5 finishes at the USA Softball JO Cup and Colorado Fireworks Super 48 among others. Paige has an advanced bat and combines the ability to hit for a high average with a solid stroke for power. The Oklahoma standout finished a strong summer batting well over .400 almost every weekend. Paige's recruiting stock was just starting to explode when she committed to the home-state Oklahoma Sooners after getting several other offers.

No, she's been committed for a while. Here is the 5 commits I know of.

Jayda Coleman-IF/OF
Paige Knight-P/3B
Nicole May-P/3B
Destiny Noury-MIF
Tiare Jennings-SS

I'm farily confident Coleman, May, and Noury will all be ranked. I don't know much about Jennings except she plays for a top organization.

OU was mentioned as a team of interest for:

25--Presleigh Pilon, MIF… Athletics -- Mercado (uncommitted)- Presleigh is being looked at by LSU as well as Oklahoma, Oregon, Alabama and Tennessee where she's visited with pending trips to Ole Miss, Florida, Michigan State, South Carolina and Arkansas possible. However, it's been mentioned the So Cal standout could be committed within a month.

23--Grace Guzman, OF… All American Sports Academy (uncommitted)- Grace currently has multiple offers from UCLA, Stanford and Cal with interest from Oregon, Northwestern, Notre Dame and Oklahoma. She'll visit Michigan this month too.

Well here come the Sooners. Get ready for another amazing class. 20-11 spots are in.

16--Destinee Noury, MIF… Athletics -- Mercado (Oklahoma)
Destinee has one of the strongest arms in the country and coaches say she does everything well. She was a key cog on the So Cal A's-Mercado team that dominated PGF 14U Nationals, going 7-0 on the way to a national title, while also going undefeated to win the Colorado Sparkler Fireworks tournament. Destinee has good size and is strong in her fundamentals. She has an excellent technical swing and is a smart player who is always thinking two or three steps ahead, be it on defense or at the plate. Destinne has shined at nationally prestigious camps such as the OnDeck West Coast Elite Camp in October 2014 where Derek Allister of OnDeck praised her for her "sophisticated level of play" and "poise and athleticism." She's one of five Oklahoma commits in the 2020 class already.

17--Tiare Jennings, SS… OC Batbusters -- Campbell (Oklahoma)
In a year of great shortstops, Tiare is one of the best and is considered an elite player because she combines great defensive skills with a power bat. She also has the attributes and instincts you can't coach and one scout remarked, "She just gets the job done." A great athlete, the 5-foot-8 freshman is a three-sport star who also shines in volleyball and basketball. She hits in the 3-hole for the Batbuster-Mascarenas team that won Colorado IDT 14U and the USA Elite Select Championship this year after winning the PGF 12U Nationals in 2015. Tiare had offers from Pac-12 schools like UCLA, but a fall camp at Oklahoma a year ago caused her to fall in love with the Big 12 power and on Sept. 2, 2016 she called Patty Gasso and said she wanted to play for the current National Champs.

You can bet the farm that Nicole May and Jayda Coleman are going to be in the top 10.

Looks like a great  group already.  By scanning the 2017-2020 classes, I see only one player who is a pitcher-first type, Brooke Vestal.  Is there another who is likely to become a starter?

Alanna Thiede is a left handed pitcher only thats a 2019. She is 1 of 2 really good pitchers for oc batbusters. For whatever reason she was overlooked in the hot 100. Olivia Raines is a 2019 thats the ace of Texas Glory staff. So I could see a staff of Vestal, Thiede, and Raines. Ofcourse you have Nicole Mendez, Grace Green, and Rylie Boon listed as position players and pitchers. I kind of expect them to be position players. Mendez could end up doing some pitching at some point. Will be interesting to see if they use her this upcoming year.

There is still Nicole May in the 2020's(think we'll see her in top 10 tomorrow). She's listed as a P/3B. The article I read talked more about her being a pitcher.

Comes from same area as Rickets and Rickets tweeted how fun its going to be to see another pitcher from her area
at OU.

Here is Rickets actuall tweet:

Keilani Ricketts ‏@laniricketts10 Aug 20 Tuscaloosa, AL
@nxcole9 @CoachGary32 @OU_Softball that a girl!! Can't wait to watch another nor cal pitcher in the sooner jersey! Congrats 😄#Boomer

9--Nicole May, P/3B… Sorcerer 16U (Oklahoma)
Nicole is a dual threat who is as good of an infielder as she is as a pitcher. She never leaves the field because her softball IQ is off the charts. Nicole always plays in control and never shows her emotions. At 5-foot-11, she moves well at third base and can move laterally and come in or drop back equally well. As a right-handed pitcher, she throws in the 60's and has an accomplished riseball, curve and change. Offensively, Nicole bats in the front of the line-up and has great power and a swing that can change a game instantly. Interestingly, after a year at 8U her coaches said she didn't have the athletic ability to play at an elite level, but another coach lit a fire under her. She eventually took up basketball and now plays freshman volleyball too. Nicole has played up most of her career and at age 14 is now playing with the Sorcerer 16U team. Since joining Gary Gascoigne's squad, she went from the No. 4 pitcher to the ace and helped the team finish 2nd at last year's PGF Ultimate Challenge and 1st at the TCS World Series in Reno this year. Nicole shined at the 2015 OnDeck June Jamboree and was offered by Oklahoma in September of 2015 while on an unofficial visit. She took her time and finally called the Sooner coaches on August 19 of this year to commit.

Drum Roll.......
1--Jayda Coleman, IF/OF… Texas Glory -- Naudin (Oklahoma)
Jayda is the third straight Oklahoma Sooner commit to be ranked as the No. 1 player in the FloSoftball Hot 100 following in the footsteps of 2019 pitcher Brooke Vestal (Firecrackers-Rico) and 2020 catcher Kinzie Hansen (Athletics-Mercado). Not coincidentally, those two won PGF National Championships this year, Brooke at the 18U Premier level and Kinzie at the 14U Premier level. Jayda almost won her own national title two years ago playing for the DirecTV Genies, coached by her father, Cedric Coleman. Jayda put up video game-like numbers in 2014 at PGF batting .625 (15-for-24) with a .700 on-base percentage and an eye-popping 1.658 OPS. The Genies came up one run short, losing to Hansen's A's-Mercado 12U team 4-3, but her amazing week in Huntington Beach showed everyone the talent and explosiveness Jayda brings to the field. It's not just the numbers, either, but the way she plays the game and actually baits the opponent into making mistakes. At such a young age, Jayda is always thinking three steps ahead and once started a triple play when a pop-up with runners on first and second wasn't called an infield fly rule. She waited for the call that never came so she cleverly let the ball drop, fired to third which led to the runner on first and the batter being thrown out also. Those heady plays and instincts, combined with 2.6 home-to-first speed and the ability to seemingly do whatever she wants with her bat and glove, makes her a game-changer in every aspect of the sport. Says one scout, "When Jayda gets on the bases, she is going to let you know she is there. I have seen some of the best catchers in the game not come close to throwing her out." Playing at the 16U level this past year, she was the leading hitter on the Glory as an 8th grader hitting at a .600 clip and over the summer had 12 homers including six in Colorado. There, she led off one game with a dinger and the opponent decided that was enough; the team then walked Jayda every at-bat afterwards including her last one in ITB with a runner already on second. That is the type of respect Jayda generates. After her break-through nationals two years ago, seven of the eight D1 teams that made the Women's College World Series soon offered her and, ultimately, Jayda felt that Oklahoma was the place that felt most like home. To be the No. 1 player in the FloSoftball Hot 100, you have to be, well, special. Jenna Lilley--the first Hot 100 No. 1 (2014) was like that; so was Amanda Lorenz in 2015. So far, those are the first two classes to actually play in college and the pair of top-ranked Hot 100 players has done just fine. Jayda is a worthy representative to those current college standouts and the others who will one day be there too. Jayda has all the physical talent in the world and combined with instincts, smarts and everything else needed can be a transformative player in another way: she's a lefty who plays shortstop. Says one observer, "You would think that would be a disadvantage, but not with her… she just makes it happen." Whether she stays there remaings to be seen--some think she has the abilities to stay at short and revolutionize the position, but others feel she could be an All-American at second, first or the outfield. That's a question Patty Gasso and staff will have to decide in four years, but until then Jayda herself says it best: "If a girl can beat me out at shortstop, then we're winning a National Championship so bring it! What I care most about is winning."

Yes indeed.

Rare to say the least but you don't have to look very far back to see success from a lefty at a MIF position as Natalie Villarreal of Texas A&M was a two time Big XII Defensive player of the year in 2011 & 2012.

I can remember watching this particular athlete (Coleman) at camps when she still played with the Direct TV Genies and wondered if anyone would try and move her to a different position. Needless to say she hasn't been moved yet.

This 2020 class is shaping up to be like the 2015 class in terms of athletes and could possibly turn out to be better than the 2015 class.

Some team had a left-handed catcher, and it seemed to work out well.  Was it Michigan?  I wonder if the modern athlete hasn't changed the advantages of a right-handed catcher?

A left-handed shortstop would have an advantage on a lot of balls hit back up the middle with the throwing hand facing first base.  Wouldn't have to run and throw.  Since not many softball hitters are thrown out at first on a ball hit to deep 5-6 position, it might not be the disadvantage that it is in baseball.

BTW Zaida Puni who is #2 we have a chance with too. A little twitter trolling shows her friended by Gasso and Lombardi which usually means good things for us. Jayda was playing 1st base for Texas Glory during the PGF games. they also had her listed in the OF. Looks like she's gotten taller. So we have the #1 player Brooke Vestal in 2018, the #1 player in Kinzie Hansen in 2019 and the #1 player in Jayda Coleman in 2020.

Note: Their also showing the #6 player Riley Blampied taking a trip to Oklahoma this month.

2--Zaida Puni, 3B… OC Batbusters -- Campbell (uncommitted)
The OC Batbusters organization has a long history of producing All-American talent, from Laura Berg and Jennie Finch in the past to Sydney Romero (Oklahoma) and Amanda Lorenz (Florida) in the last few years. It's still early for Zaida Puni, but it shouldn't be long before she's added to the list of Batbuster greats. One of the top power-hitters not just in the 2020 class, but in the entire club softball scene, many experts feel Zaida could've played at the 18U level last year in that she physically looks grown-up and has the explosive bat that would allow her to succeed on the field with players four, even five, years older than herself. A fierce hitter who crushes the ball because of her strength, Zaida was described by one coach as "having more power than anyone her age group, bar none." Another said of her, "She's a beast and doesn't understand yet how great she can be." That potential was on display this summer at PGF Nationals where Mark Campbell's 14U team was one of the favorites entering the tournament, but lost on the first day and had to fight its way through the loser's bracket to win eight games and finish tied for 3rd. Zaida was a major reason the team went on a winning streak as she batted .458 with a 1.042 slugging percentage and a 1.578 OPS. She led her talent-laden team in hits with 11, home runs with 4, and was second in RBI with eight. A dynamite third baseman who can make all the plays on defense, she has Pac-12, SEC and Big 12 schools after her including early favorites UCLA and Oklahoma.

6--Riley Blampied, MIF/C… Georgia Impact -- Newland (uncommitted)
Riley is unbelievably smooth in the field, has a cannon for an arm and makes plays that others can't. She has good power at the plate and led the Impact team in home runs. Riley can beat you in so many ways and is the type of player you build a program around. Said one scout after watching her at the Colorado Sparkler tournament, "Riley is a woman amongst girls." She is a future middle-of-the-order bat at a premium position and her defense is notable for her loose, natural softball actions. The Georgia standout has been in the Impact organization since she was 10 and her athleticism and body control--combined with her tireless work ethic--make her one of the most coveted recruits in the nation. The highest compliment you could give her is she is the infielder that everyone else in the South compares players against. The freshman has offers from powers like Florida, Alabama and Oregon, visited UCLA during PGF Nationals and trips to Oklahoma this month.

I like how Kinzie Hansen remembers Coleman stole a base on her. That tells you it doesn't happen very often.

Two traditional powers, Oklahoma and Arizona, have jumped out to a huge lead as each has picked up five early commits from the 2020 class.
The Sooners having their quintet all in the top 25 including No. 1 prospect Jayda Coleman. It's the third class in a row with the Sooners getting the Hot 100 top player after getting 2018 pitcher Brooke Vestal and 2019 catcher Kinzie Hansen. All three, incidentally, committed before OU won this year's NCAA D1 National Championship.
The Arizona Wildcats are also tearing it up getting five players who are ranked in the top 35 including a pair of in-state twins. Like Oklahoma, Arizona has done a great job in securing top prospects in talent-rich Southern California.
Six schools have a pair of commits from the 2020 Hot 100 and nine others have one player… so far.
Conference-wise, the SEC leads with most teams represented in the 2020 Hot 100 at six. The Big Ten, Big 12 and Pac-12 each has three teams on the list.
The surprise at this point early in the 2020 class may be Ohio State which has secured commits from a pair of players in the Buckeye State, both of whom play in the Beverly Bandits organization. Keep an eye on OSU, which is off to a good start in keeping talent at home.

University # of Players Ranking of Players
Oklahoma 5 1, 9, 16, 17, 26
Arizona 5 4, 7, 20, 22, 35
Auburn 2 5, 24
Missouri 2 10, 29
Oregon 2 19, 58
Washington 2 41, 42
Texas A&M 2 48, 66
Ohio State 2 80, 93
Alabama 1 14
Florida 1 15
Georgia 1 21
Notre Dame 1 28
Syracuse 1 32
Texas 1 38
Oklahoma State 1 40
Maryland 1 79
Penn State 1 92

Been pretty quiet on the Puni front. She visited OU months ago. From what I heard OU was the leader at that point. But I haven't seen or heard anything in a while.

I watched some of the OC Batbusters Campbell championship game Saturday, and I can tell you that Tiare Jennings, a 2020 OU commit, is the real deal.  Great SS and hitter who went yard her first time at bats.  At 5'8" she looks extremely athletic.  She was selected as MVP for the U 16 tournament.  The 2020 class at OU is loaded with Coleman and Jennings and three others.  I still think OU is in good shape with Zaida Puni who plays 3rd base for the same OC Batbuster Campbell team and is rated number 2 in FloSoftball's Top 100.

As of the last flosoftball rankings for 2020, OU's commits are ranked as follows
1 - Jayda Coleman
2 - Zaida Puni
9 - Nicole May
16 - Destinee Noury
17 - Tiare Jennings
26 - Paige Knight

It really is amazing how high OU's commits are ranked.

See 2020 Softball Recruits for more details on each of the 2020 commits.

Here's the blurp on what flosoftball said about Puni

2--Zaida Puni, 3B… OC Batbusters -- Campbell
The OC Batbusters organization has a long history of producing All-American talent, from Laura Berg and Jennie Finch in the past to Sydney Romero (Oklahoma) and Amanda Lorenz (Florida) in the last few years. It's still early for Zaida Puni, but it shouldn't be long before she's added to the list of Batbuster greats. One of the top power-hitters not just in the 2020 class, but in the entire club softball scene, many experts feel Zaida could've played at the 18U level last year in that she physically looks grown-up and has the explosive bat that would allow her to succeed on the field with players four, even five, years older than herself. A fierce hitter who crushes the ball because of her strength, Zaida was described by one coach as "having more power than anyone her age group, bar none." Another said of her, "She's a beast and doesn't understand yet how great she can be." That potential was on display this summer at PGF Nationals where Mark Campbell's 14U team was one of the favorites entering the tournament, but lost on the first day and had to fight its way through the loser's bracket to win eight games and finish tied for 3rd. Zaida was a major reason the team went on a winning streak as she batted .458 with a 1.042 slugging percentage and a 1.578 OPS. She led her talent-laden team in hits with 11, home runs with 4, and was second in RBI with eight. A dynamite third baseman who can make all the plays on defense, she has Pac-12, SEC and Big 12 schools after her including early favorites UCLA and Oklahoma.

Yes they are rated #1 and #2. Flo says their going to do another 2020 Hot 100 shortly after the PGF championships which will conclude this week. This maybe the most impressive class of them all.

1 Jayda Coleman, IF/OF… Texas Glory
2 Zaida Puni, 3B… OC Batbusters -- Campbell
9 Nicole May, P/3B… Sorcerer 16U
16 Destinee Noury, MIF… Athletics -- Mercado
17 Tiare Jennings, SS… OC Batbusters -- Campbell
26 Paige Knight, P/3B… Tulsa Elite

I think Jayda is pretty close to a lock to stay #1. Zaida as long as she does well in the PGF should have little to no movement. Nicole May has won some bigtime awards so she might actually move up. On a Flo interview they seemed very impressed with Tiare Jennings. Seems like she'll probably break into top 10. I haven't got much information on Destinee Noury or Paige Knight. I think they've both played well but haven't gotten a feel as far as if they may move up or down.
