The Nebraska Cornhuskers are not only getting a heck of a college softball pitcher in Jordy Bahl, but also someone who could be a game-changer with the bat.
There’s already been a ton of excitement surrounding Oklahoma transfer Jordy Bahl coming to the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Most of that excitement is over the fact that head coach Rhonda Revelle got herself one of the best pitchers in the sport.
However, it’s worth pointing out that Bahl was one of the best athletes overall and not just as a pitcher before she landed in Norman. It’s possible that people who are looking for a reason why she decided to leave OU and come to the Huskers, the fact that she’ll be allowed to hit here, could be a big one.
Bahl didn’t hit for the Sooners, but she’s getting the chance for the Nebraska softball team. As a senior at Papillion-Lavista, she hit .510 with 20 home runs.
Bahl is going to help the pitching staff in a big way. But she might also give the offense a boost as well next season. That’s saying something considering they were already considered darkhorse national championship contenders with her in the rotation.
