Warren plays travel ball for the Texas Peppers in Tomball, Texas.

Why Savannah Picked Arkansas: "Loved the campus and atmosphere."

What Larabee Says About Savannah: "Another versatile athlete that can play a variety of positions. We will probably play her in the outfield. Very fast and will cause havoc on the base paths. It will be fun to watch her speed increase as she competes against the other speed merchants on the team."

Mesquite, Texas (Poteet High School)

Yannetti Notes: Yannetti is an all-district and all-area performer for Mesquite Poteet High School.

She is a standout in the classroom as a three-time selection to the academic all-district team. Yanetti has also earned all-district honors for the Poteet volleyball team. She plays travel ball for the Texas Glory Gold in Dallas.

Why Madison Picked Arkansas: "I have a lot of family there. I love the atmosphere and the great program."

What Larabee Says About Madison: "She will get a chance to compete at third base to begin the fall. Has played on a very competitive travel ball team and has shown she can hit the best pitching in the country. She also has a very high softball IQ and has a huge upside."
