Class Of 2020: You're On The Clock

null

The 2020 Hot 100 rankings are the next class up to be recognized as the top players in the country. 

Oklahoma-commit Jayda Coleman is the reigning No.1 ranked player in the nation since 2015. Most recently making the USA Junior National team, Coleman’s talent continues to impress every season batting nearly .700 with over 40 stolen bases at The Colony High School.

Coleman will be in good company with Oklahoma’s No. 1 recruiting class that includes standouts Zaida Puni, Tiare Jennings, Nicole May, Destiny Noury, and Paige Knight all in the Hot 100. Coach Patty Gasso’s 2020 class resembles the Sooners 2015 class with Syd Romero, Shay Knighten, Fale Aviu, and Kylie Lundberg. 

So who will give Coleman a run for her money? 

Georgia Impact Premier - Lewis shortstop and Alabama-commit Bailey Dowling was named Illinois Gatorade Player of the Year posting 21 home runs will be a most definite contender. Dowling was also one of the two 2020 graduates to make the USA Junior National Team along with Coleman.  


Corona Angels pitcher/hitter Sarah Willis (Washington) could make a run for the No.1 spot given her versatility and career in wins and championships. 

Two pitchers that can change the game for Auburn are Maddie Penta and Shelby Lowe. Lowe ended the summer on a high note winning the PGF 16U Premier Nationals and helping the Birmingham Thunderbolts to a No.1 club ranking. Penta returns from a summer injury and is projected to have a dominant summer.


Another pitcher who has been dominant is Florida-commit Haley Pittman who tossed 331 strikeouts during her high school season for Alabama Christian Academy. Expect the Atlanta Vipers - Holbrook ace to make a run for the PGF 16U Premier title and Gatorade Player of the Year.


Let's not forget standout speedster outfielder Jahni Kerr. She's projected to jump up the rankings as a triple threat. The Florida State-commit was featured as a Rising Star last month. Florida State's 2020 class will surely rival Oklahoma's recruiting class with Hallie Wacaser, Carson Saabye, Kalei Harding, and Jeya Presad.

Even though she grew up in Sammamish, Washington, St. Olaf College righthander Julie Graf was an avid New York Yankees fan. It had more to do with her parents, Paul and Barb, being East Coast transplants and lifelong fans themselves than anything else (with all due respect to the major league team 30 minutes away).
