Taylor August Commits To Fairfield

Courtesy of The Independent

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.

Congratulations Taylor!

FYI... Sydney Dimon From Notre Dame High School in Elmira, NY has verbally committed to attend Iona College. She is an awesome player who can play 3rd, 1st & catcher. I have seen her play and she can field & hit with the best of them!!

Looking forward to seing Taylor play, but wondering why she wasn't listed on Fairfield's announced list of 2012 recruits. I hope she hasn't had a change of heart.

If she didn't sign a letter of intent during the one week signing period in November, and will not until this spring, Fairfield by NCAA rules would not be permitted to discuss her commitment publicly. As an example, elsewhere on this blog I announce the commitment of Alexis Roman to Canisius, but she will not sign until the spring, so there is no mention of her yet by the official Canisius site. This blog is not affiliated with any school, and is free to announce any commitment. I haven't seen any indication that Taylor August has changed her mind, although it is always possible.
