Hot 100 Rankings

2021 Hot 100 Rankings

FloSoftball has ranked the Hot 100 top fastpitch prospects beginning with the 2014 Class and has done every year since: 2015, ’16, ’17, ’18, ’19 and ’20 and we’ve also updated most of those years several times (the 2019 Hot 100 being the most recent, updated in February).

And as for this initial 2021 list of standouts—who are just in the eighth grade, even though many are playing up at the varsity high school level already—we’ll update the Hot 100 list several more times over the next five years so know this is just the starting point!

These honorees were chosen based on input and feedback from college and club coaches as well as our own FloSoftball event and in-person observations. Criteria for choosing and ranking the players includes performances at the club and high school levels and projecting how they will play at the collegiate level.

September 2018 we will be updating the 2021 Hot 100 rankings. It’s been quite a while and there have been so many changes since last year. That means that hundreds of new candidates from all over the country are being considered for this year’s Hot 100 rankings.

Last year, Oklahoma-commit Quincee Lilio was named FloSoftball’s 2021 Hot 100 #1 player and was followed by a slew of Pac-12, SEC, Big 12, and ACC commits.
