Patty Gasso did it again! The defending national champs have boosted their roster with yet another all-conference player in hopes of going for a repeat next spring. On Friday the Sooners announced the addition of transfer utility player Alyssa Brito from the University of Oregon. 

With three years of eligibility remaining, Oklahoma has added a player who produced a .299 batting average with 10 home runs and 31 RBIs, five doubles, a triple and 30 runs scored. In 53 games started at shortstop she registered 59 putouts, 73 assists and committed just four errors.

“When I was on campus and met Coach Gasso and the staff, it felt like the perfect fit. The coaches, players and championship mindset were something that helped me choose OU during this process, I can’t wait to get on the field and grind with this talented group of players.”

As a freshman for Oregon last season, Brito was named Second Team All-Pac 12, Pac-12 All-Freshman Team and Pac-12 All-Defense accolades. She was also named to the NFCA’s All-Pacific Region Second Team. 

“We were in search of a player that can play multiple positions and play them all well, in addition to someone that can bring additional power to our lineup. Alyssa checked all of those boxes. Her relationship with some of our current players also played a part.”
