Texas just got a whole lot better. The Longhorns add former Oregon ace Miranda Elish and lefty slugger Lauren Burke. On Thursday, Elish and Burke announced they were transferring via Twitter and now they announce Texas as their school of choice.

Elish had an incredible sophomore season for the Ducks named First Team All-Pac-12, 12th in ERA, 6th in shutouts, and 17th in strikeouts nationally. She will make an immediate impact in the circle for Texas under the guidance of Mike White. 


Burke had a monster regional and super regional in Eugene knocking two home runs in her first two at-bats against Albany and Drake. She is now a sophomore and will spend three seasons with Texas.


With the addition of Elish and Burke, Texas could be in the running for a Big 12 Title. The last time the Longhorns won the title was in 2010. Oklahoma has been the reigning Big 12 champs for the last seven consecutive seasons.
