With softball coming up, the D1 crew gathered to rank the top 100 players of the 2023 season. The staff discussed the list with the goal of determining the best and most valuable college softball players for the 2023 season.

Jocelyn Alou passed the torch to Tiare Jennings in many ways, including being our MVP. It shouldn’t shock anyone that Oklahoma, a two-time defending national champion, has the most players on the list with 10 and eight players in the top 26. UCLA comes in second with six players, including the only freshman on the list, Megan Grant.

The SEC has the most players of any conference with 28 names, including Alabama’s Montana Fouts, Tennessee’s Keke Milloy and Arkansas’ Hannah Gammel. The Pac-12 has 18, the Big 12 has 16 and the ACC has 12. The Big Ten has eight players, with Northwestern player Daniel Williams the highest-ranked player in the conference.

The Sun Belt has four players, the most from a non-Power Five conference. All three players from the American Athletic Conference — Wichita State teammates Addison Barnard, Sidney McKinney and UCF’s Jada Cody — can be found in the top 20. Conference USA, Summit Conference, West Coast Conference, Mountain West, Big West, MAC, America East and Ohio Valley Conference are all also represented.

The softball era is reflected in our list, with only 29 outfield players making the top 100 compared to 71 outfield players.
