Prior to throwing a pitch for Ocean Springs’ varsity softball squad, Kylie Taylor jumped at the chance to play in the SEC.
Missouri showed plenty of early interest, and the rising freshman committed to the Tigers back in December.
According to her parents, Taylor recently decided to re-open her recruitment in an effort to stay closer to home.
The Taylors hope to stay in the SEC and plan to make several regional visits in the coming weeks before making any other decisions.
Never miss a local story.
Taylor showed out as a freshman for the Greyhounds this season. A true dual threat, Taylor earned 17 wins with a 1.14 ERA and 167 strikeouts in the pitcher’s circle. She also hit .469 with 38 runs, 31 hits, six doubles and five home runs.
Taylor earned a spot on the 2017 Sun Herald All-South Mississippi Softball Team.
