This happens much more than people realize. We often say that the Softball Community is very small. Well the College Softball Coaching Community is tiny. And they talk to each other about the good and bad. Had a 2018 slapper that was recruited by 3 of the best JUCO's in Florida. The 3 coaches had a conversation and discussed which of their programs was a best fit for her. She was smart and went with their recommendation.... The Kansas U coach saw my DD pitch, but decided on another player. However, the Kansas coach called up her friend at Ohio U. coach and said, "You better grab this kid." My DD looked at the offers, and liked the Ohio U best.
