Ducks fly together to Texas. 

Junior outfielder Shannon Rhodes announced Monday that she will be transferring to the University of Texas making her the third player to transfer from Oregon to Texas this fall.

This will be sort of a homecoming for Rhodes who is from Fort Worth. 

What will Rhodes bring to Texas?  

Rhodes is a tenacious player who brings the intangibles a team needs in a leader. She is vocal, scrappy, and produces on offense. The Texas offense struggled last season and will need another veteran bat in the order.

Named Second Team All-Region she drove in 42 RBI, 11 home runs, 6 doubles with 14 stolen bases. FloSoftball ranked Rhodes the No. 6 recruit in the class of 2016.

On defense, she will push her teammates to compete for a spot. Don't be surprised to see the defense shuffled around in February as the Longhorns figure out the best nine on the field.
