That's a good pickup Killatella. They sure are all listed on the roster. So 7 OU commits on the team. Has to be good that they will get used to playing with each other. Especially with Hansen catching some of our pitchers. Going to be a crowded infield. The Brady girl is also on the team, so lots of middle infielders. Nicole May not showing on the roster but her twitter shows Batbusters.

The next Sooner is in. About the same, she fell from 26 to 29.


29 | Paige Knight, P/3B | Tulsa Elite (Oklahoma)
Knight has all the tools necessary to make big waves at the next level. The 5-foot-10 athlete has a very strong arm, good speed, and the versatility at the plate to be able to connect consistently for power and average. Paige has proven to be a mainstay in the heart of the lineup for a very tough Tulsa Elite organization, and has helped lead them to top finishes at several major tournaments. Because of her ability to compete at a high level in the circle, on the field, and at the plate, she caught the eye of in-state powerhouse Oklahoma and made her commitment to the Sooners.

41 | Destinee Noury, MIF | OC Batbusters - Stith (Oklahoma)
Noury 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 finished second at the 16U PGF Nationals this year before leaving the team for the OC Batbusters. Batbusters coach Mike Stith says Noury has all the natural tools that make a great infielder. Noury 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. Noury has shined at nationally prestigious camps such as the OnDeck West Coast Elite Camp, where Derek Allister of OnDeck praised her for her "sophisticated level of play" and "poise and athleticism." She's one of six Oklahoma commits in the 2020 class so far.

7 | Nicole May, P/3B | OC Batbusters - Stith (Oklahoma)
May is a dual threat who is as good of an infielder as she is a pitcher. She never leaves the field, because her softball IQ is off the charts. May 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's throwing in the 60s and has an accomplished riseball, curve, and changeup. Offensively, May bats in the front of the lineup and has great power and a swing that can change a game instantly. For her Foothill High School squad last season, she pitched 191 innings, had 293 strikeouts, and an ERA of .84. She also batted .460 with 10 home runs. She was the NCS freshman of the year and won a variety of other awards including Cal-Hi Sports State Freshman Player of the Year. May 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 2016 to commit.

6 | Tiare Jennings, SS | OC Batbusters - Stith (Oklahoma)
Jennings is one of the best shortstops in the country 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. One scout remarked, "She just gets the job done." A great athlete, the 5-8 sophomore also shines on the volleyball court.
For her St. Anthony High School last season, Jennings hit a whopping .521 with a .553 on-base percentage, 37 hits, 23 RBIs, and 27 runs. She had offers from Pac-12 schools like UCLA, but a fall camp at Oklahoma two years ago caused her to fall in love with the Big 12 power and in September 2016 she called Patty Gasso and said she wanted to play for the reigning national champs.

4 | Zaida Puni, 3B | OC Batbusters - Stith (Oklahoma)
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) more recently. 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, she 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 took second in a close final game against the Texas Dirt Divas. Zaida was a major reason the team went on a winning streak. For her St. Anthony High School team, Puni batted .429 with a .482 on-base percentage, 38 RBIs, and 39 runs. A dynamite third baseman who can make all the plays on defense, she had Pac-12, SEC, and Big 12 schools after her before she chose the reigning national champs.


1 Jayda Coleman, IF/OF | Texas Glory - Naudin (Oklahoma)
In our society, we love to build an athlete or team up only to then look for their weaknesses and try to knock them off the pedestal. Some fade under the intense spotlight, but Coleman, who was the No. 1 player in the first 2020 Hot 100 and has had a target on her back for the last year, has not only upped her game and become more of a complete player, but has also thrived under the pressure of being the top recruit in her class. It's not like she's a late-comer to the national recruiting scene, either: Coleman wowed everyone three years ago at the PGF Nationals when she almost single-handedly helped the DirectTV Genies, coached by her father, Cedric, win a title as she batted .625 and had a .700 on-base percentage.

Ever since then, she's been one of the top stars in her class and has been on everyone's radar as a can't-miss prospect. Coleman is the rare lefty shortstop who isn't moved to another position, and it will be interesting to see if she plays short for the powerhouse Sooners in a few years or is moved elsewhere, like the outfield, where she's also put in some time. But if anyone can play shortstop as a left-hander, Jayda has the abilities to make it work. As one coach said, "You would think that would be a disadvantage, but not with her . . . she just makes it happen." Said another, "[Coleman] makes it look so easy at the position; you won't find another left-handed shortstop that can pull it off the way she does."

What makes Coleman an elite prospect is the fact that she has great physical tools -- fantastic speed and explosiveness with the ability to hit for power or lay down the bunt. It's not uncommon for her to get on base via the drag bunt, then steal second and third, and finally come home on a sacrifice, fielder's choice, or passed ball. But it's her passion for the game and her softball instincts and smarts that set her apart as a once-in-a-decade athlete.

The Texan will play at the 18U level this year for the Glory. Her coach, Kevin Shelton, says: "[Coleman] is as-advertised. She has one of the highest softball IQs I've ever seen, and mentally she is ahead of most and as physically gifted as any." And then there are the numbers. Even though every team plotted to stop the standout freshman, Coleman has put up huge numbers in high school and club ball over the last year. As a freshman at The Colony (Texas) High, Coleman earned first-team FloSoftball All-American honors and was the MaxPreps National Freshman of the Year after hitting .653 with 74 runs scored, 53 steals, 12 home runs, and 32 RBIs with an amazing .705 on-base percentage.

Not surprisingly, she earned every local and state honor too, including 5A all-state tournament, the district 14-5A MVP, and the Dallas Morning News Player of the Year. And then this summer, playing for Ed Naudin's 16U Glory team, Coleman once again recorded stellar numbers: a .565 batting average, 53 runs scored, 70 hits, and an impressive 39-for-42 in steals going against many of the top catchers in club ball. At PGF Nationals -- playing against the best of the best -- Coleman was second on the team with a .375 average and led the team in runs scored while posting a .474 on-base percentage. With three years of high school and club ball to be played before she ever steps foot officially on the Oklahoma campus, it will be interesting to see how good Coleman can become. One thing is for sure, however: 2017 has shown she's not only getting better over time -- she's continued to earn her spot at the top of the FloSoftball 2020 Hot 100 rankings.

Wow. What a remarkable class

1 Jayda Coleman, IF/OF… Texas Glory
4 Zaida Puni, 3B… OC Batbusters
6 Tiare Jennings, SS… OC Batbusters
7 Nicole May, P/3B… OC Batbusters
29 Paige Knight, P/3B… Tulsa Elite
41 Destinee Noury, MIF… OC Batbusters

Maybe we have too many players on the Batbusters? They are all infielders; can they all play at the same time?

20. Oklahoma St. 3 Ranking #36, 93, 108
50. Texas Tech 1 Ranking #114
51. Kansas 3 Ranking #168, 173, 179


I think it is noteworthy to observe that not only does OU have 4 of the top 7 ranked girls but that the schools ranked 2-10 in the rankings only have 3 top 10 girls combined committed to their schools.

Very dominant year for the Sooners!!!

If you'll watch the Jayda Coleman video I posted above. She mentioned OU had a camp a few weeks ago and alot of them played on the same team. She said she came up and hit the ball to the wall, Rylie Boone followed her and hit a ball to the wall, Tiare Jennings followed her and hit it out. She said the talent was amazing and wait until they all get together. She seemed very excited about it.

You can go to this link and vote for Tiare Jennings for player of the week.

How about those stats? 6 games, she's batting .684 with 4 homeruns and 5 RBI's.

XTRA INNING SOFTBALL’S NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL PLAYER OF THE WEEK
JAYDA COLEMAN (THE COLONY, TEXAS)
If you follow club and/or high school softball on a national scale, you’ve probably heard of Jayda Coleman, the outstanding sophomore who not only is considered one of the top recruits in the Class of 2020, she’s rated as one of the top prospects in any age division.

The Oklahoma Sooner commit can do it all on the field—hit for average and for power, play defense with efficiency and flair and steal bases against the best catchers in the game.


Jayda stole four more bases this week to give her 39 on the season in 27 games.
In 2017 Jayda was an All-American honoree after a very impressive freshman campaign when the lefty shortstop hit .653, stole 53 bases, smacked 12 home runs, scored 74 runs and knocked in 32 runs to earn every award possible: 1st Team USA Today All-American, Dallas Morning News Player of the Year, 5A All-State Tournament honors and the 14-5A District MVP.

As good as 2017 was for the Texas native, this year is shaping up to be even better, at least statistically, in several categories.

In three games this week, Jayda went 8-for-11 (.727 batting average) with four steals, seven runs scored and led her team to a 2-1 mark.

In a Monday game versus Creekview, Jayda went 2-for-3 with a single and double, two steals and a pair of runs scored. Tuesday at Lake Dallas, she went 5-for-5 with five runs scored, three RBI and a steal and yesterday (Saturday), the future Sooner went 1-for-3 with a double and a steal.


Jayda hasn't struck out all season in 99 plate appearances.
For the season the standout Texan has a .698 batting average, 12 doubles, seven triples, 24 RBI, 39 steals (caught just twice) and 50 runs scored in 27 games.

Heading into Saturday’s game, the Texas sophomore had a .750 on-base percentage, a 1.193 slugging percentage and a stellar 1.943 OPS. Jayda is also batting .727 with runners in scoring position.

One of her most impressive achievements is she hasn’t struck out all year in her 99 plate appearances.

“I been hitting trying to focus on hitting better pitches,” Jayda said before Saturday’s game. “and also making every at-bat count by hitting good pitches and, if they try to walk me, I will take the walk.”

“If they do pitch to me, I want to swing at good pitches and just hit lines drives up the middle. Also, I like to use all my tools by slapping and bunting, just to always having the defense on its toes.”

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.

Just amasing!
