FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Why Oakley Picked Arkansas: "I was born a Razorback fan."
What Larabee Says About Oakley: "Very solid outfielder that can go get the ball. She has a very accurate arm and has increased her arm strength a lot over the last year. Moved to the left side of the plate just over a year ago and has made great strides. Her full swing is coming along which is going to make her hard to defend."

What Larabee Says About Allison: "She can spin the ball better than any pitcher I have ever recruited. Has command of several pitches and loves to compete.
