Georgetown High School catcher Taylor Ellsworth will skip her senior season with the Eagle and begin her college career at Texas this spring.
Ellsworth was one of two mid-term enrollees for the Longhorns that are immediately eligible to play this season. The other is Brooke Bolinger, a left-handed pitcher that transferred from the University of Nevada.
Both practiced with the team on the first day of practice Wednesday.
Ellsworth was a three-year standout at Georgetown High School where she had a career batting average of .550 with 21 home runs and 107 RBIs. She played club softball for Austin’s Texas Blaze. She was a two-time all-state player.
Bolinger, who’s from Yucaipa, Calif., posted a 16-6 record with a 2.81 earned run average, 18 complete games and 118 strikeouts during her freshman season at Nevada.
