USF softball to add two late transfers
USF softball, hoping to build on its first trip to the College World Series, has picked up commitments from two late-summer transfers for 2013 in junior college standout Dani Wayt and infielder Nicollette Levine from Florida State.
Wayt, a shortstop from Oviedo, chose the Bulls after a breakout season at State College of Florida, where she hit .344 with 42 RBIs, 28 runs scored and 14 doubles. She comes to USF from the same program as Stephanie Juergens, one of USF's pinch-running specialists last year.
Levine, a corner infielder who played at Tampa's Newsome High and earned first-team all-state honors in 2011, was once a Florida commitment and played sparingly in her only season at Florida State. She said Monday that she has not been accepted into USF, but is hopeful of hearing good news soon. Levine is familiar with many USF players, having played for the Tampa Mustangs travel team.
