On National Signing Day, Oklahoma State’s softball team signed the No. 8 class in the nation, which includes six talented high school seniors.
"This class has shaped up to be a really solid class that we have been working on for years," coach Kenny Gajewski said. "It has been rated in the top 10 for two to three years now.”
The highest rated prospect is pitcher Tatum Clopton, from Lawrence, Kansas, who ranks No. 7 in the nation according to FloSoftball. She also ranks No. 10 in the Extra Inning Softball Elite 100 list. Four other Cowgirl signees rank in the top-70 of the list including two in the top-25.
Infielder Brianna Evans, from Red Oak, Texas, ranks No.11 on the list and utility player Tatum Sparks, from Shawnee, Oklahoma ranks No. 25.
Utility player and Perkins, Oklahoma, native Hailey Kastl comes in as the No. 56 player on the Extra Inning Softball's Elite 100 list. Catcher Maggie Herdejurgen, from Crosby, Texas, is No. 65 ranked player by Extra Inning Softball.
Rounding out the class is infielder Kathryn Ogg from Katonah, New York, who excelled on the field and in the classroom.
"We have added depth all over the field but most importantly we have added great students and great families that will only make our program better,” Gajewski said.
“These families are all in and have agreed to keep climbing, pitch to pitch, to achieve their goals."
