Jillian Jones may look tough as nails on a softball field, but it’s a mentality, not her personality. The Industrial junior is so serious at the sport of softball she’s already verbally committed to playing at the college level with Ouachita Baptist University in Arkansas, and they are ready to have her.
It’s been no surprise she will be a powerhouse no matter where she plays. As a sophomore, Jillian was decorated with All-State Third Team honors, and she currently plays on a Select team out of Houston, the Impact Gold-Navy team, meaning she plays softball nearly all year long.
OBU has been a part of the Jones family for awhile, hence her reason for committing so soon. Jocelyn, Jillian’s oldest sister, played shortstop for the Tigers and graduated in 2014, and Jordin, the middle sister, currently plays for the College of Charleston in South Carolina.
