“I chose Oklahoma because, I wanted to be coached by the best coaches to have them improve my game. I also like that Oklahoma is a very family-oriented program and I get to compete with some of the best softball players in the world. When I get to Oklahoma I want to start as a freshman, win a national championship and make a name for myself.”
Coach Gasso Says
“Jocelyn was a late addition and I’m really pleased we found each other; she comes from a very strong line of athletes. I’m so excited about getting her here where we can work with her daily. I think she is going to be a pitcher’s nightmare. I think she has the ability to swing it like Lauren Chamberlain after she’s had training. I know JT can’t wait to get started with her. I think she’s going to be a difference maker. She can work behind the plate, she’s played first and can play the outfield. But with her bat, she’s going to find a place.”
