Default Softball transfers - Good news & bad news .

Couple of reports on the net of softball transfers - one outgoing and one incoming . Don't know how reliable the reports are , but the incoming one at least has some verification on the player's twitter page .

First the bad news - One of last year's promising freshmen , Alexis Mack , is evidently transferring . Oregon has been mentioned as a possible destination . Mack started 40 games for USC at either second base or DP . She is a lefty slap-hitter who hit .341 with 42 hits (all singles) and stole 14 bases in 18 attempts . She has a lot of potential as a leadoff type hitter and I wish her well .

Now the good news - Transferring in is a catcher from Penn State , Alyssa Vanderveer . She was first team all Big Ten in 2016 as a sophomore and hit .362 with 11 home runs . Assuming she has her release and can play this year , she should strengthen what was possibly the weakest spot in the USC lineup . Vanderveer already has " South Carolina Gamecocks # 41 " on her twitter page . A link to her Penn State bio is below .

Too bad about Mack but hopefully a net gain like you said

Man Mack was a really promising player. I wonder why the decision to transfer? I am just really excited to see Cayla Drotar play. I think she is the part that we have been missing in order to make it to the next level.

Wow, Vanderveer is already 5th all time at Penn State in career home runs, in just 2 years of eligibility, according to that last link posted. It seems like she will bring some fire power in her bat to the team. And Stewart was either 1st or 2nd on her team in most offensives categories at Purdue last season as a freshman.

Both Walters and Stewart are from GA - sounds like they had a bit of homesickness involved, perhaps. Good additions to the team's offense. It's a shame that Mack is transferring out though, as she was a very promising player for us. But it may be that our team got stronger offensively in the transaction, for the next 2 yrs at least....

Stewart and the new Juco can compete for the leadoff spot . We should be ok there . We needed another middle-of-the-lineup type hitter , and hopefully Vanderveer can give us that .
