I just looked her up and they show her as a 2022 recruit. I think that means she will be a freshman in the 2023 season, for frame-of-reference that means part of the class replacing this Fall roster’s Junior Class.

Right. Finger check on the class😊 Sounds like she is a power hitting lefty.

Gophers have another 2021 recruit from CA - Kayla Chavez. She is a middle infielder who plays on the same club team as recruit Emily Leavitt. Committed on 8/27.

YES!!! That is a big get for us. She appears dominant in Minnesota for a her age group.
Ok, for reference sake Gopher68 and others:

2022 season

Out: Fiser, Partain, Brandt, Kemmetmueller, and Gill

In: Emily Leavitt, Brynn Hostetler, Elaina Gottleib, Kayla Chavez

2023 Season

Out: DenHartog, Pease, Jensen, Hansen, Lindbergh, Drey

In: Schwartz, Lefty batter from Texas?


Sound right?

Missing the addition of Angelina DeLeon from 2022. Lindbergh = Lindner.

The 2022 class looks very good, at least on paper.

Both Leavitt and Chavez are rated in the top 50 recruits in the country by extrainnings.com.

Is Schwartz the only 2023 currently committed?

[/QUOTE]

Addison Leschber 1B/OF from Thrall, Texas. She looks like she can connect that left-handed swing with Texas pitching... which is promising.

Gottlieb signs with Oregon State. But, I noticed that Jordyn Peterson from Blaine committed to the Gophers a while back. She should be signing today.

And even if they don’t bring in single other player, the 22 person roster that they would have for the 2022 season (24 for the 2021 season less 5 graduates plus these 3 incoming Freshman) would be greater in number, and therefore in theory deeper, as compared to the rosters they have had for the 2020 or even 2019 seasons, since Lindaman left the team.

I am very excited for the teams that the Gophers will be putting on the field over the next couple years. Now we just need to get a schedule.

Another 2022 commit from Northern California - Infielder Jess Oakland from Mountain View:
Jess Oakland Commits to Minnesota | Cal Nuggets Softball
We seem to be getting a lot Californians in the roster. So to keep it straight in at least my mind:

2023 Season

Out: DenHartog, Pease, Jensen, Hansen, Lindner, Drey

In: Schwartz (MN), Addison Leschber (TX) and now Jess Oakland (CA).

Maybe two or three more 2022 (playing in the (2023 calendar year season) commitments should come in over the next few months with probably at least one more from Minnesota, right?

I notice Gopher Softball writes that they've added Chavez, Hostettler, and Leavitt to their "2021 roster." Not clear who writes these notices, but the "2021 roster," if taken for what it says, would mean that the 3 will be playing in the spring of 2021. At the same time, the recruiting release says the 3 will not graduate from high school until 2021. Are they playing for the Gophers in spring 2021? Or are they arriving on campus in the fall of 2021? Does anyone know?

I think they are signed as 2021 HS graduates. So, 2021 most likely means Fall of 2021. The article also says they are class of 2025 which means their first spring season will be 2022.

Yeah, I eventually figured that. My comment was pretty trivial; I wondered why whoever wrote the post couldn't state it specifically to avoid confusion. My initial thought on spotting the post was, What? 3 more players joining in spring 2021?
