Breaking News: 2023 Extra Elite 100 Player Rankings to Begin March 11, 2019!

Ashtyn Danley, a Florida State commit, helped the Tennessee Mojo win the PGF 12U Premier Nationals title last summer and is a strong candidate to be near the top of the 2023 Extra Elite 100.

Extra Inning Softball announced today the dates of publication for the list of the top 100 players in the Class of 2023 Extra Elite 100 as part of the next installment in the prestigious Extra Elite 100 series.

The list, including player bios and photos, will start Monday, March 11, 2019 and wrap up with the #1 overall prospect to be announced on Friday, March 22, 2019.

This follows the previous Extra Elite 100 rankings published over the last year for the Classes of 2018, ’19, ’20, ’21 and ’22. The 2021 Extra Elite 100 rankings were the most recently published (January, 2019).

It won’t just be the Extra Elite 100 who are honored, however: the prospect rankings will go 300-deep and feature these athletes who have been evaluated in person and those who have been recommended by more than 200 club and college scouts/coaches.

Led by Brentt Eads, Extra Inning Softball’s President & Executive Editor who originated the top 100 rankings lists used in softball and will now have ranked a decade of graduation classes (2014 to 2023), the initial 2023 Extra Elite 100 will have the most extensive and thorough player bios available along with head shots of every player.

Though young, the 2023 class includes 19 players who had committed to top programs like Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Oklahoma and Texas A&M before the Early Recruiting Rules went into effect in April, 2018.

Here is the schedule of the two-week rankings run with 10 prospects honored per day counting down from #100 through #1 and a third week which will include a spotlight on the top-rated player plus the recruits listed from #’s 101 to 300:
