Florida Softball made headlines last year when two 7th graders verbally committed to the Gators. With this most recent commitment it seems as if they are doubling down on their bet to start recruiting at a younger age.
Carrasquillo is a Florida native and has always dreamed of playing for the Gators. She has been selected to the USA Elite Select 30 team for two straight years now and has won a PGF National Championship.
In her latest season she batted .620 with 12 home runs and 120 RBI’s. She is definitely a special talent and a player to keep an eye on in the future.
