I noticed my alma mater had an open tryout. Is this a new thing? Why is there a tryout when you recruit? I have played and coached at D1 level and just wondering is this a norm now?

Completely the norm.  There are many girls who go to a school unrecruited with great skills and want to play for the school of their dreams.  Coach may know and then just asked them to come and go to the open tryout!!

People scoff at tryouts but teams have picked up some good players this way. Kelli Suguro, for example, went to a walk-on tryout at WA (and was turned down) before she was asked back and eventually not only received a scholarship but also ended up as a 2nd team all-pacific region performer.
