Class Of 2019: You’re On The Hot 100 Clock!

The senior class made it official in November by signing National Letters of Intent (NLI) and now it’s the class of 2019 who up next.

It’s been a year since FloSoftball unveiled the second version of the junior class, and now we revisit the ’19 group which was headlined by a strong crop of catchers and pitchers.

Will there be much movement since our last update? There usually is!

Recent history shows us that there can be as many as 20 to 50 new players who emerge and enter the Hot 100, especially after we’ve watched and evaluated talent at club events during the summer and fall season of national championships and showcase tournaments.

FloSoftball has done eight grad years of Hot 100 player lists — from the class of 2014 through the 2021 class — and we’ve updated each of the 2015-19 classes at least once with this being the third version for the 2019 standouts.

We’ll also announce who will be the top-ranked player, and those atop their classes have been impressive so far. Previous No. 1 Hot 100 players included USA Softball national team member and Oregon infielder Jenna Lilley (2014), NCAA Freshman of the Year and Florida outfielder Amanda Lorenz (2015), Oregon standout pitcher Miranda Elish (2016), and USA Softball junior national team member Bri Perez (2017, UCLA signee).
