Nebraska Cornhuskers fans are fired up by Jordy Ball’s talk of ‘coming home,’ but so far she hasn’t said she’s going to sign with UNL.
For those who don’t follow college softball, Jordy Bahl is one of, if not the best, player in the sport these days. She most recently led the Oklahoma Sooners to yet another national championship. A Sooners team that was about as dominant as college sports has seen.
That’s why the idea that Jordy Ball might be joining the Nebraska Cornhuskers got everyone in Nebraska both surprised and excited. The question now is whether or not she actually is going to be a Husker within the next few days.
"“I am excited to return home and be Jordy Bahl, the softball player, but more importantly, the person. I am excited thinking about growing the game that has provided me with so many opportunities for growth in my home state, a currently overlooked state for girls in softball at all ages, and I am excited to finish the softball journey right where it began.”"
Bahl is from Papillion-Lavista. The big question now is whether “coming home” means Nebraska or Omaha. Obviously, the assumption is the Huskers but this space should be watched.
