Top 2018 College Softball Recruiting Classes

Meet 2018 No. 1 Hot 100 Player Megan Faraimo

As we finish wrapping up our final 2018 Hot 100 rankings list this week, FloSoftball honors those elite players — and thousands across the country like them — who take the next step in fulfilling their life-long dream of playing collegiate softball by signing their National Letter of Intent.

Taking these Hot 100 athletes and the Next 100, we’ve compiled our list of the top college recruiting classes comprised of these standout seniors.

The rankings process is based on a point system in which the higher ranking players received more points. Each player's point total is based on a sliding scale; for example, the No. 1 player receives 200 points, No. 2 has 199, No. 3 has 198… down to No. 200 which receives one point. 

Note that the system favors those who signed more players, but with most programs signing anywhere from two to six, it gives a good idea on who picked up top players and more of them.

Here, then, are the top 2018 college recruiting classes as determined by FloSoftball:
