Softball Signs Four for 2014-15 Class

Nov. 14, 2013

HOUSTON - The University of Houston softball program announced the signing of four incoming student-athletes to national letters of intent on Thursday afternoon. Kendall Brown, Kaylin Crumpton, Mariah Garcia and De'Zha Scott will join the program for the 2014-15 season.

Three of the future Cougars are from Texas (Brown, Garcia and Scott) while Crumpton hails from California. Both Brown and Garcia are penciled in as infielders while Crumpton and Scott look to be positioned in the outfield when they arrive.

"This is one of the most diverse classes we have signed," said head coach Kyla Holas. "I am hoping they come in and fit as key pieces to our puzzle and help continue our tradition and success."

Houston begins their 2014 season hosting two tournaments with the Houston Invite (Feb. 14-16) and the Houston Classic (Feb. 21-22) starting the season. The Cougars went 41-20 last season and advanced to the NCAA postseason for the third consecutive year.

Kaylin Crumpton

"Mariah is a key player towards our future at Houston. Her athletic ability is what we are recruiting and building our team toward. I look forward to seeing her succeed at Houston."

De'Zha Scott

"Dezha has a speed that we have not seen since Jessica Valis. I am excited about what she can do on the base path for us and how her speed will affect defenses.
