Personal
Full name is Jules Janae Townsend ... daughter of Robert & Heidi Virdell and Billy Townsend ... joins twin sister Paris as part of the 2011 Oklahoma signing class ... has one step-brother, Brett Virdell, and one step-sister, Lindsey Virdell ... chose OU over Texas, Washington and Arkansas.

Why Oklahoma:
"I chose the University of Oklahoma because I felt the most comfortable there. Academically, I have the support needed to succeed in my classes. Overall, OU will help to prepare me for the future. Oh yeah, playing with my sister Paris is a dream come true."

Coach Gasso Says:
"Jules Townsend is someone who has been at our camps for quite a long time and we've watched both her and sister together for a while. With Jules' size, she can become a very dominant pitcher. She has worked with us, so she knows our style of play. She has a great future with us. What's nice about her is that she can really swing the bat too. She's another pitcher like Keilani Ricketts who can throw her own game and also win her own game offensively."
