WACO, Texas – Baylor softball added five student-athletes in the 2024 signing class, announced by head coach Glenn Moore on Wednesday.

Three of the 2024 signees are from Texas, while one hails from Mississippi and one from Colorado. They are scheduled to enroll next fall and will be eligible for the spring 2025 season.

“We’ve addressed every need except catching in this class,” Moore said. “We believe in recruiting highly competitive athletes from winning programs. That means we recruit winners who hate to fail and are willing to pay the price success demands. Although this likely will not complete the 2024 class, it is a great foundation in replacing a very successful class of seniors.  Thank you to my staff for working tirelessly in the recruiting process to bring in these new Bears.”
