    It's certainly possible, and makes sense. Rhodes is a proven powerhouse at the top levels of the D1. I would bet there are lots of coaches interested in her.

    In that vein, Iakopo is a So Cal girl, so coming "home" to UCLA wouldn't be totally surprising. However, UCLA's roster is large, and deep with catchers. Her bat however, is undeniable.

    When you can't take certain classes because you play softball, when being late to a practice because you have a lab is not acceptable, it's pretty obvious they are athlete-students.

    Does anyone know when the last day is that someone can transfer to another team and still be eligible to play the 2019 season? I can't find this information anywhere online. Would that be an NCAA rule?

    Had an interesting conversation with a parent whose DD goes to a D1 school near where I live. They started that players are told college majors cannot be those that have classes that are not flexible to the training schedule of the team. They specifically said engineering, nursing, chem, biology, and a couple others are verboten. Kinseology and Social Sciences are welcomed. Some girls gave used the strategy that they take all they basic requirements the first two years and hope to prove to the coach that they are starters and get allowed into their preferred major. Not a great strategy if you ask me.

    This is a pretty common approach by many D1 coaches. That is why my daughter plays D3. In general, D3 coaches are more respectful to the academic demands of the student-athletes. Multiple pre-med majors on daughters team. As much as we all love softball, I think it is even more important to have a plan for after college and softball. Too many girls do not think about life after softball. Unfortunately, there are very few opportunities for our daughters in softball after college (coaching, NPF, Team USA). Planning for a career in college is of utmost importance to success.

    This has been going for ever. Back in 19XX (ugh - so long ago now) when I was being recruited for basketball I was presented with 'these 5 majors are your choices' from the Basketball program at a PAC school. I ended up playing in the MAC where the college I ended up at with let me choose my major and courses without interference.

    I’ve heard coaches tell kids their majors will be difficult, but never that they can’t take one. Only thing they can’t do is study abroad. Everything else can be scheduled around. Some kids might take an extra semester or summer classes, but it’s doable. That two year strategy definitely isn’t normal.

    It might happen at a couple D1’s, but that’s not the least bit common. DD’s team has four engineering and two biology majors. I also know several D1 kids at other schools who are/were pre-med. I agree about the importance of planning for a career, but that’s not unique to D3.


    People need to realize there’s well over 200 D1 schools and at most 10% where softball comes first. I know it’s different for revenue sports, but this is something I’ve just never seen in softball.

    No player on Florida's softball team with a STEM major or Nursing.

    Alabama doesn't list but from what I remember they don't have anybody either.


    The guy that coaches the Olympic team doesn't have anyone with STEM major either.

    3 girls on the 23u travel team I coach go to the same D2 school. The coach does not place restrictions on majors but she did tell each of them that the major they choose could impact their playing time. If they are unable to make practice because of labs they likely wont see the field.

    I know the major D1 that I attended limited majors for football players but I cant speak to other sports. I knew some football players and wrestlers personally.
