2011 Verbals

Cal- Danielle Henderson 3b/C- Lady Magic
Cal- Cheyenne Cordes SS/OF- Lady Magic

Saw Danielle play for Sheldon and I hoped she would follow big sis Jolene to Cal, looks like she is . Haven't been that impressed with a Fr, even Val Arioto, and anyone who has read my posts knows how talented I think she is.

I think I may have made a mistake as I can't find information confirming it. I think I confused it with Brittany Schutte

The front page of the Texas Eclipse website has Walker's commitment to Florida.

http://www.texaseclipse.com/content/view/48/1/

Spy had a writeup about a tournament in June that had this:
A two-run home run by Brittany Schutte (Florida) elevated the score to 5-1.

She plays for the Batbusters.

Thanks I thought I had it the first time, but I kept retracing my steps and I couldn't find her commitment

Talk about ASU, how about Cal??

Cal keeps having all these extremely early verbals and they don't seem to pan out once they get to college 3 or 4 years later. How can you know how that athlete is going to perform at such an early age?

Not to mention the freshly graduated Alexa Rivera to D1 UOP and Morgan Otto to D1 San Jose St.

All from an organization with just one team. Must be something in the water.

     Congrats to these young players.  The next 8 years of their life is laid out for them, stress free, no choices, no decisions.  Now they just have to pass their High School classes and that darn driving test.

Wow playas sure are giving verbals earlier & earlier.  I didn't think coaches could offer them anything this young.  Sure hope they aren't fickle like most teenagers are & they stay healthy & injury free...life sure is full of surprises you know!

Im sure if the players don't turn out as expected when the now freshman goes into her senior year and applies at the school. I bet a few will be rejected and the coach has a free out because he or she can't honor the scholarship if the student cant get into the school. Im sure it isn't to hard for a coach to make a request of the admission dept to put someone on the waiting list ( will eventually accept them) . However gives the coach the leway to contact the athlete and tell them she or he can not wait to see if she gets in.
NCAA needs to make a rule no contact even on unofficial visit till the student starts her first day of classes in her Junior year.This is getting silly , First year HS girls should worry about going on their first date not going on their first unofficial visit to a college.

For years I have heard immature girls who are influenced by team colors and television exposure exclaim, "I want to go to UCLA" or "I want to go to Arizona". They prance about with clothing associate with their choice while their parents dream of grandeur for their offspring. . Now they are simply making those statements on a national level (I assume with the various collegiate coaches' warm embraces). It's called "early verbal".

With the sport catching on more, these early verbals will be more of a common place. This is unfortunate.

Some of the girls are immature and make an early verbal due to the programs reputation (powerhouse program sush as Arizona Widcats). Part of the early verbal can also be attributed to the parents and coaches...The parents also get caught up in the hype as well.

And with TV coverage beginning to be expanded even more.
More regular season games on TV.....the girls want to secure a spot on teams with national exposure. Ever girl wants a national championship.

I do not see the trend tailing off.


Is this trend more likely in the Pac10 conference?
is the SEC,Big12 coming along.........

I personally think the early verbals will translate to more equality in the sport.  Keep your eyes open and you will start seeing more mid majors making noise on the national scene in the next 2-3 years.  It's all about time...and the more early verbals - the less time the mid major has to sit out there recruiting someone they wont get and they can concentrate more on a "late bloomer (16-17yr old) that fell under the Big time radar!

I also think more mature blue chip prospects will be more apt to choose a school/coach with integrity when they see the outcome of this mess in a few years.

Seems like it would help the mid-majors ,who are operating at a huge disadvantage...less budget ,less coaches to scout , less players contacting them .
I have watched at tourneys when a manager from a gold team comes to a major college coach & hands him a team packet & doesn't give one to a mid-major coach sitting beside him......a lot of players might be missing out & don't know it.

Breana Kostreba commits to CAL

Breana Kostreba
Sorcerer third baseman Breana Kostreba has made a verbal commitment to accept a softball scholarship to the University of California.
Kostreba, who is beginning her sophomore year at Aptos (CA) H.S., recently gave her commitment to Bears Head Coach Diane Ninemire.  Kostreba had made an earlier visit to the Berkeley campus. "I had a great visit," Kostreba said.  "I loved the campus.  I'm focusing my studies in engineering and Cal offers many engineering options.  I am also impressed with Coach Ninemire and her staff and I know I will be playing in a great softball program.  I knew Cal was the right choice for me," she said. Kostreba carries a 4.0 GPA at Aptos High.  An all-league performer, she also was selected last fall to attend the prestigious National Futures Elite Camp, one of only four 2011 players nation-wide to be selected.
Breana is one of a number of present and former Sorcerer players who are playing or will compete for the Bears.  Junior Marissa Drewrey and soph Val Arioto are current Cal mainstays, and they will be joined by current Sorcerers 2009 infielder Jordan Wallace and 2010 second baseman Ashley Decker and 2010 first baseman Alex Robben.
Last season nearly three dozen former Sorcerers played in Division I college programs across the nation. 
 
 
The Cal/Sorcerer pipeline reminds me alot of the Cal/WestBay Nuggets pipeline 6 or 7 years ago.
