Flo doing hot 100 on 2019's in January. I was a little surprised at this. I figured they'd do this class right before they signed.

She was ranked 65 last ranking. I am a fan of Thiede. She looks like that Oklahoma lefty we've gotten accustomed to. I think Lombardi will do wonders with her.

90 | Alanna Thiede P | OC Batbusters – Stith (Oklahoma)
Thiede worked her way up through the Batbusters organization, playing on very successful teams under the guidance of Mark Campbell at the 14U level and is now on Mike Stith’s 18U Batbusters who have won two of the last four PGF Premier National Championships. Competing on one of the favorites to win it all next year, Thiede adds depth and talent to the nation’s deepest corps of pitchers which includes fellow Sooner commits Olivia Rains (2019), Nicole May (2020) along with Arizona-bound hurlers Farrah Steffany (2019) and Madi Elish (2021). Thiede is a southpaw who changes speeds well and can handle both sides of the plate. She has good velocity and movement with excellent off-speed pitches to complement her heat. The So Cal resident doesn’t play high school ball. Instead, Thiede focuses on training and working out full-time to prepare for her arrival next year in Norman. She finished the fall season strong, pitching a shutout in her final game.

76 | Alicia Flores OF | Athletics Mercado (Oklahoma)
Flores is a power-hitting outfielder headed to Oklahoma where she will join her big sister, Eliyah, a 2017 signee currently playing for Tony Rico’s 18U Firecrackers squad. The younger sibling’s blazing speed is a key asset that helps her track down balls that are sure-fire hits against average outfielders. Flores also has tremendous bat speed, driving balls everywhere on the field no matter the caliber of the pitching she faces. A big, strong player who can hold down a corner when she’s not taking away hits in the outfield. Flores batted .380 over the fall season for her Athletics-Mercado team. She batted .447 last season playing for her Grand Terrace (California) High team and passed up offers from Big Ten and Big 12 schools to join her sister as a Sooner.

59 | Rylie Boone OF/P | Texas Glory (Oklahoma)
Boone is a five-tool player who does it all on the field as a true lefty who even pitches and with high 50’s speed and a good change, but it’s her all-around athleticism that has drawn comparisons to the play of former Florida All-American outfielder Kelsey Stewart when she was at the same age. Boone has top-level speed and explosiveness and uses her quickness to play small ball and slap to get on base, but she has pop in her bat too. As a junior playing the high school season this past fall for Owasso (Oklahoma) High, she batted .532 with eight home runs, 30 RBI, and 27 extra-base hits. Equally impressive, she only struck out once all season. A Class 6A 1st Team All-State selection, she is a prototypical center fielder who covers a ton of ground and has a gun for an arm. She committed to the home-state Sooners in September of 2015 over many other Power 5 school offers.

56 | MACKENZIE DONIHOO SS | DEMARINI ACES (MISSOURI)
Donihoo’s strong 2017 season in club and high school ball propelled her into the Hot 100 as she led her Mustang (OK) High team to the state championship and during the summer she batted .449 with an on-base percentage of .529 and 20 steals and was third on Ryan Taylor’s DeMarini Aces squad in RBIs and home runs. Donihoo has the speed at 2.7 home-to-first to leg out gap hits into extra bases as shown by her .421 high school batting average which included 15 doubles. On defense, she reads the ball well, isn’t afraid to charge, has 65 mph overhand velocity and uses her command of the quick-release style to shut down the short game. The infielder was spotted by college coaches during her 8th-grade season and visited LSU and Florida along with her eventual choice, Missouri, and soon thereafter committed to Mizzou.

52 | Macy McAdoo P | Oklahoma Athletics (Oklahoma)
McAdoo is a righty hurler who is tough to hit as she has a mid-60s velocity with movement to spare. She exploded on the mound and onto the recruiting scene in 2016 and picked up offers from almost every program who saw her pitch. McAdoo has led her Tuttle (Oklahoma) High team to two consecutive 4A state titles and picking up 596 strikeouts along the way. In 2017, she recorded 303 Ks and allowing only 27 earned runs in 195 innings for a 0.97 ERA. Sooner fans are thrilled that she’s chosen to stay close to home—OU is only 30 minutes from her high school—as she committed to Patty Gasso in November of 2016. Says one coach of McAdoo: “I can see why Patty recruited Macy, she’s not a lefty, but she’s very hard to hit. Macy will quickly become a pitcher well-known on the D1 Big 12 college scene.”

21 | Olivia Rains P/OF | OC Batbusters—Stith (Oklahoma)
Mike Stith added Rains to his talented staff, making her part of a killer three-ace squad rounded out by Farrah Steffany (Arizona) and Alanna Thiede (Oklahoma). These three could add another title to Stith’s club legacy. A mature pitcher with excellent work ethic, Rains is efficient and difficult to hit, with speeds in the mid-60s. In 2017, she threw two perfect games, three no-hitters, and five games with only one hit. In 209 innings, this workhorse collected 260 Ks. She stands 5-foot-10 and has the frame to use to her advantage in the circle and will continue to improve as she gets stronger. Rains smashed a ball that left the yard for Pryor (OK) in the 5A Oklahoma state championship that ended a 20-year title drought for school. She recorded 293 strikeouts over 235 innings and was the Drillers Softball Athlete of the Year in 2017. Another Hot List player who will stay in her home state, Rains will play for the Sooners in college.

3 | Kinzie Hansen C | OC Batbusters—Stith (Oklahoma)
Hansen has been the No. 1 player in the 2019 class in the first two editions of the Hot 100. She drops a bit not because her skills have diminished but simply because of a knee injury which has kept her out for most of the fall. A new addition to Mike Stith’s Batbuster team, Hansen joins a stable of already established catchers in Terra McGowan (2018, Arizona State), Colleen Sullivan (2018, UCLA), and Sharlize Palacios (2019, Arizona). Hansen accepted her new role of sharing innings behind the plate while rotating in at first base to get experience at other positions. At 6-foot-1, she has caught practically every inning of every game at the prep and club level, which included winning a PGF 14U national title in 2016. Hansen also helped Dave Mercado’s team take second place at PGF 16U Nationals last summer, where she led her talent-rich squad with a .421 average and an on-base percentage of .500 with five RBIs in seven total games. When healthy, Hansen is a game-changer at whatever position she plays and has all the tools defensively and offensively. She was a first-team FloSoftball All-American as a sophomore at Norco (CA) after batting .470 with 11 doubles and 43 RBIs.




Following that freshman campaign, she batted .426 with seven home runs, 18 walks, a .525 on-base percentage, and a team-high 37 RBIs to earn CalHi Sports Freshman of the Year and MaxPreps Underclass All-American honors. Perhaps the most impressive thing about the So Cal junior is how she’s held up the past two years while being ranked as the No. 1 player in the 2019 class and having everyone gunning for her. She has more than risen to the challenge because of her great physical abilities. The rare five-tool catcher’s fiery competitiveness and mental toughness make her one of the best prospects of any age class. Hansen has hung with the greats of the game — including women’s national team member Aubree Munro — and she's also went through Jen Schroeder’s The Packaged Deal workouts. Hansen has shown she’s already in that rarefied air. When she gets back to full health and has another year under her belt, look for her to once again be battling for the top spot in the class of 2019 Hot 100 rankings.

So was Kinsey Koeltzow a recent commit? I assume so since we haven’t had her on any of our lists until now

I think she slipped on the radar on us. I can tell you she looked really good in last tournament. Hitting 3 homeruns and 2 in the championship game.

The final Extra Innings 2019 list came out


6—Kinzie Hansen, C/1B, OC Batbusters - Stith (Oklahoma)
Kinzie is an elite player who had a knee injury a year ago that made her miss the fall season and the first six games of the high school season, but she came back strong with a big year that saw her win 1st Team Extra Inning Softball and MaxPrep All-American honors as well as 1st Team All-State recognition by CalHiSports.com. Kenzie has been the State Junior, Sophomore and Freshman of the Year for CalHi the last three years--an amazing accomplishment as she’s continued to produce despite all the pressure and efforts of opposing teams to shut her down. She batted .519 with 44 hits, 35 RBI and a 1.409 OPS with only two games in the 25 she played for Norco (California) High where she didn’t get a hit. She, along with fellow 2019 Extra Elite 100 teammate Paige Smith and pitcher Sarah Willis, a 2020 Extra Elite 100 pick, lead the Cougars to the CIF Southern Section Div. I championship. On her Mike Stith-led club team, Kinzie rotated at catcher and first and helped the Batbusters finish 2nd at the PGF 18U Nationals. Said one coach, “Her presence and leadership are great… she is having a great fall and understands there’s more to do, but we see a different player who’s getting better and better and has the work ethic to be one of the best.” A 5-tool catcher, Kinzie is a great all-around athlete and can do so much on the field and at the plate that she’ll break the line-up quickly at Oklahoma.

T-28—Rylie Boone, OF/P, Texas Glory (Oklahoma)
Rylie gets the job done on offense and defense with an unorthodox swing that confounds opponents but works for her as she typically leads off and finds a way to get on base. The Sooner commit has soft hands and a powerful swing that makes her difficult to handle. As a junior she was a 1st Team Extra Inning High School All-American as she hit .532 with eight home runs and 30 RBI with only one strikeout all year. She’s also a standout basketball player and led Owasso (Oklahoma) High to a Class 6A State basketball championship last season. “Rylie loves the game and the way she bounds around the field, it shows,” said one top coach. A lefty with all the tools and even can pitch as she was an All-District pitchers as freshman, she has speed and quickness that helps her excel at small ball and doing whatever it takes to get on base. One of the top outfielders in her class, she has a strong arm and the mobility to cover a lot of ground. She closed the recruiting door in September of 2015 when she picked OU over several other Top 25 D1 programs.

31—Macy McAdoo, P, Oklahoma Athletics (Oklahoma)
Macy is a right-handed pitcher who throws in the mid-to-upper 60’s and has great movement on her pitches. The senior has led her Tuttle (Oklahoma) High to two Regional 4A Regional 4A titles pitching three game shutouts each years on their way to a pair of state titles. Last season she was almost untouchable, compiling a 0.97 ERA with 303 strikeouts in 195 innings and she started this fall with an 18-0 record and a 0.63 ERA with 182 K’s. She lives about a half hour from Oklahoma and committed to the Sooners almost two years ago after receiving 13 Div. I offers.

T-51—Mackenzie Donihoo, SS, Aces Fastpitch (Oklahoma)
Mackenzie has the speed at 2.7 home-to-first turn gap hits into extra bases as shown by her .421 batting average with 15 doubles for Mustang (Oklahoma) High. She led the prep team to a high school title last fall and during the summer continued her impressive offensive display as she had a .482 on-base percentage with 10 home runs, 13 doubles, an on-base percentage of .482 and swiped 29 bases a year ago. On defense, Mackenzie is fearless and has good instincts with the reflexes to go side-to-side and back and forth; once she fields the ball, she has a strong arm and quick release to throw out the fastest of runners. Mackenzie initially committed to Missouri but with the coaching change switched to Oklahoma to play for her home-state Sooners.

T-55—Olivia Rains, P/OF, OC Batbusters - Stith (Oklahoma)
“Great work ethic” is the phrase you hear often mentioned about Olivia, who is so dedicated to being good that she is reportedly going to move to California in January to train and work on improving her game. She throws a full complement of pitches and at 5-foot-10 can throw hard and down very effectively. Olivia earned 1st Team All-American honors by Extra Inning Softball in 2018 as a Multi-purpose player as she is a dangerous too. Prior to this season, she was the Tulsa World Softball Player of the Year two years in a row and went 31-3 to lead Pryor (Oklahoma) High to the Class 5A state semis last fall. This week, her team made it to the state championship game but lost to Carl Albert High despite Olivia hitting a home run and giving up just two earned runs in the circle.

T-61—Alanna Thiede, P, OC Batbusters - Stith (Oklahoma)
Alanna has had a long and successful path through the OC Batbusters organization first with Mark Campbell at the 14U level and for the last two years with Mike Stith’s 18U team that finished 2nd this summer at the PGF Nationals. She’s a lefty with good off-speed pitches and movement to go with her ability to throw hard. She comes from Poway, California to workout with the Batbusters based in Anahaim and was having a strong start to her summer, pitching well in June before a back injury forced her to shut it down for the summer. However, she’s rehabbing and has worked hard to get leaner and stronger as well as refine her pitching arsenal and she looks to have a strong senior season both in high school and in travel ball before heading to OU next fall.

76—Alycia Flores, OF/IF, Athletics - Mercado/Smith (Oklahoma)
Alycia has been described as having “crazy fast hands” when hitting and is “just as deadly batting” as her older sister, Eliyah, who is at Oklahoma where the younger sister is scheduled to sign. Alycia generates excellent bat speed and can hit line drives from foul line to foul line. Playing at Grande Terrace (California) High, one of the top programs in Southern California, Alycia runs well which allows her to play the outfield and the corner infield spots where she can pounce on the ball and take away the short game. She batted .410 as a junior at Grand Terrace with 24 RBI in 26 games played. She had offers from Big 12 and Big Ten programs but looks to play on the same field with her sister starting in the fall of 2019 in Norman, Oklahoma.

Basically 7 players in the top 75. This is a 9 player class right now and I think you could make an argument the other 2 could be in top 100. Another top notch class from Gasso. Glad to see Boone and Mcadoo getting some love. I’ve always thought they were under rated.
