The Texas softball team added two infielders to its 2020 recruiting class over the weekend.
On Sunday, Abilene High senior Alyssa Washington announced that will continue playing softball in Austin. The Bowie County Citizens Tribune also reported that New Boston’s Carlee Ratcliff had pledged to UT.
Washington was once committed to North Carolina. Ratcliff is an ex-Iowa State recruit.
