Why Oklahoma?
“I’ve wanted to play softball at OU since the first time I attended a OU softball camp when I was seven years old. This past year when I took my first visit and toured the softball facilities, campus and the academic center, I felt right at home. I look forward to playing for the coaching staff and being part of a winning tradition.”

Coach Gasso Says:
“Tyler appealed to me immediately because of her athletic look on the field. I’ve seen her play shortstop and second base; I’ve seen her play multiple positions on the field and defensively she was always a standout. She’s very smooth and effortless in the field. Offensively, she has really elevated her game. She has game-changing power and speed, which makes her an outstanding all-around athlete. She’s grown up in our camps, so I’ve been able to see her progress and become a very talented athlete. She’s a local athlete and we always try to keep our best, local talent here to play for us. She has a very strong work habit; she has engaged in crossfit training for a while and is really dedicated to her sport. She’s committed and disciplined in becoming a very good player, so I’m excited about what she is going to bring to the team.”
