Taylor August of Howell, NJ has verbally committed to play softball at Fairfield University beginning with the 2013 season.
The Stags have landed a gem from perhaps the top high school softball program in the state of New Jersey. Taylor August is a third baseman for the top ranked St. John Vianney High Lancers, a team that finished 29-1 in 2011 while winning division, county, conference, section and state (second consecutive) championships. And Taylor was a big part of their successes.
The Non-Public School First Teamer is a powerful hitter who can go deep often, and hit for average. However, she also is held in high regard as a pitcher for her travel team, the Morris County Belles Gold, so Fairfield may have a double threat coming in.
