Top 2021 High School Softball Recruits


Softball America rounds out its brand new recruiting rankings by taking a look at current high school sophomore. Below are the best 25 players from the class of 2021.

In formulating rankings for the sophomore through senior classes, Softball America places an emphasis on real-time developmental growth in conducting player-profile analysis. Prospect potential, projected upside, overall and position-specific athleticism as well as other quantifiable metrics are key components of evaluation. At the same time, current skill set, production and impact at the club and/or high school level are fundamental analytical data points. SA’s methodology includes consultation with club, scholastic, collegiate and Team USA sources nationwide.

  1. 1

    Rylee Holtorf

    O'Connor (Phoenix, Ariz.) INF

    CLUB TEAM: Mizuno Storm

    Holtorf followed up an impressive freshman year with an even better sophomore season to take over the top spot in the Class of 2021 rankings. She batted .551 with 13 home runs, 50 runs scored and 43 RBI as O’Connor won the Arizona Conference 6A state title. The Washington commit showed terrific patience at the plate, drawing 27 walks for a .661 on-base percentage to go with an outstanding 1.205 slugging percentage.
  2. 2

    Kinsey Fiedler

    Lee's Summit North (Lee's Summit, Mo.) SS

    CLUB TEAM: DeMarini Aces

    Fiedler slipped from the top spot in the SA rankings, not because of anything she did -- her high school season was completed in the fall -- but because of Holtorf’s brilliance. An all-state sprinter this spring, Fiedler will try to reclaim the No. 1 ranking with a big summer for the U18 Aces. The Missouri commit hit a school-record .527 for Lee’s Summit North as a sophomore, with four home runs, seven triples, 33 RBI, 38 runs scored and 22 stolen bases.
  3. 3

    Lexie Delbrey

    Bainbridge (Ga.) P

    CLUB TEAM: East Cobb Bullets

    No hurler this spring was able to surpass the hard-throwing Georgian as the top pitcher in the Class of 2021. The right-hander with a 70-plus MPH fastball went 17-1 in the fall high school season with a 0.77 ERA, 222 strikeouts and just 20 hits allowed in 100.1 innings.The East Cobb Bullets will count on her heavily again this summer, after she struck out nearly two batters per inning in 2018.
  4. 4

    Savannah Pola

    Godinez (Santa Ana, Calif.) INF

    CLUB TEAM: Corona Angels

    Pola had another sparkling season for the Grizzlies, who won the California Southern Section Division 4 tournament title. The UCLA commit batted .577 with 15 doubles, 49 runs scored and 30 RBI. Perhaps the most impressive stat the Cal-Hi Sports Sophomore of the Year will carry into her junior season: zero strikeouts in 218 career plate appearances.
  5. 5

    Aubrey Barnhart

    Goodpasture Christian (Madison, Tenn.) C/INF

    CLUB TEAM: Tennessee Mojo

    Playing primarily at short for Goodpasture Christian, Barnhart once again showcased one of the best bats in Tennessee and was named Div. II-A Middle Tennessee Miss Softball. The Auburn commit hit .597 with an impressive .713 on-base percentage, adding four home runs, 38 runs scored and 28 RBI.
