SIAP.... Coach Murphy retweeted this a few minutes ago. Alabama has signed the 1st, 24th, and 28th best players for the class of 2012 according to ESPN. The #1 player looks like she can do it all at the plate and in the OF. It's a good time to be an Alabama softball fan.
Also signed #41 who is also a 4*. Getting that national championship bump ;)
Someone was asking about softball recruiting within the last couple of weeks. I had no clue they had rankings for softball so thanks for posting.
Wow, great link. Read the blog titled Roll Tide under players news for Andrea Hawkins. I can't wait to see this girl. Thanks for the new bookmark.
I saw this article last night and meant to post it. The class coming in ranks about 3rd nationally which is excellent.
I'm very surprised that the kid from Mortimer Jordan isn't ranked higher. The kid is the by far the best player I've ever seen play on the high school and travel ball level. My team played MJ a couple of times, and have watched her play a lot since her 9th grade season. If the Hawkins kid is actually that much better, our outfield may be the best we've ever had on the capstone.
No National Championship bump at all. The kids have been committed for over two years and signed well before the season even began. Most softball players have committed by the end of their junior year. We already are full for our class right after this one as well, and we are working on Sophmores and Freshman now in HS. Still great to see Bama dominating!
Ryan Iamurri has a new tattoo and it's pretty freaking cool.
Awesome Tatt. There is NO DOUBT everything that our team did during that Rain Stoppage, if we want to call it that.....helped us get over the top and win Game 3. Each of our girls were ready to go, taking the attitude from our coaches and running with it. While OU also took their coaches attitude - we saw first hand which worked the best.
Let' It RAIN.....will have to be some kind of slogan for next years team. Rain will be on the arm bands in some way
1 more thing on these girls...While their overall ranking speaks for itself, something I found even more impressive...Click on the position for each girl. We have:
#1 and #6 Ranked Outfielder
#2 Ranked Second Basemen
#3 Ranked 3rd Basemen overall. Impressive class all the way around.
looks like Murphy and the Alabama Staff are capitalizing on their championship exposure. Congrats to all of these girls, its going to be pretty fun to watch Alabama Softball for the coming years.

What may end up being even more impressive is this coming year signings...Each of these girls it looks like signed Nov. 2011? Attached to each of the scouting reports is the release from The University and each one is dated in November '11. The train was rolling even before this Championship was won. Hopefully, it only makes this next class even better. WOW.
Thanks BB2One, we are in good hands with Coach Murphy.
there is a signing period in late 2011 for the 2012 incoming freshman. So these girls were on board before the Natty
