Softball Recruit has High Hopes for Time at MSU

Ebonee Echols, a senior at Northgate High School in Newnan, Georgia, has recently made her verbal commitment to play on Michigan State University’s varsity softball team.

Echols, who currently leads her high school team in RBIs, was not shy about her enthusiasm for coming to Michigan State.

“I’m excited I get to play the sport I love at one of the highest levels at an amazing school like Michigan State,” Echols said.

Having started playing softball at age four, Echols is fully aware of the hard work and dedication it takes to achieve her goals, and it would not have been without some help.

“My parents are always there pushing me to be the best on and off the field,” Echols said.

When it comes to the Spartan softball team, Echols has high aspirations.

“I’m thrilled to be playing for some awesome coaches while helping MSU softball win championships,” she said.

It’s clear that this young player has much to add to MSU Softball.

“I can add my passion for the game along with a lot of dedication and hard work to the team. I feel like I have a lot of skills that will only be enhanced once I become a Spartan.” Echols said.

What’s important to her at the end of the day is her love of the game and softball community.

“The competition and the adrenaline rush you get during the game and the atmosphere are amazing,” Echols said. “Being out there playing with a group of girls that become family to you is the best.”
