It took a few days, but the inevitable has happened after Jordy Bahl broke the internet on Monday by hitting the transfer portal after winning back-to-back national titles with the Oklahoma Sooners.
As expected, Jordy Bahl has announced her commitment to the Nebraska Cornhuskers after saying she was headed “back home” to her home state.
She made her announcement on Twitter Thursday morning, with some photos in her new uniform.
“After two years of wonderful memories, I’m excited for two more representing the Nebraska Cornhusker,” Bahl writes. “This state, these people, and this N are all things I’m excited, proud, and thankful to be a part of it.”
Bahl was an absolute lightning rod for the Sooners over the past two seasons, maintaining a 1.00 ERA over 288.2 IP with 397 strikeouts and just 41 earned runs. As a starter, Bahl was 44-2 in her career at Oklahoma, giving her one of the best records in the country in that stretch.
In the 2023 Women’s College World Series, Bahl showed the country just how special she is. Bahl was a perfect 4-0 in the Women’s College World Series, tossing 24.2 scoreless innings with 33 Ks, and also scored two massive runs as a pinch runner.
Bahl’s exit leaves a void for the Oklahoma roster, but they do return Nicole May and Kierston Deal in the circle. With that being said, look for Patty Gasso to add a piece or two to the pitching staff before the 2024 season.
