Anyone notice the other Hoos who were GPOY in HS named in this story? Mitchell, from Maryland, certainly had a great career here and once she graduated the program went downhill fast. The other one, Frei, from NJ didn't fare so well in her year with us. Both MD and NJ are much more heavily populated states than Iowa so the competition is much greater for GPOY.

I post this not to throw cold water on this young lady's accomplishment but to try to keep expectations for her realistic. Thanks NJ Hoo for posting the HS game video, style wise she looks similar to Grube. What I like most about what I saw there is that she looks like a very good athlete and her demeanor is stoic. It will certainly help her that we have more depth at the pitching position now as well as other new promising pitchers coming in this class.
