Reigning Pac-12 freshman of the year Cydney Sanders is joining NCAA champion Oklahoma softball via transfer portal, the young star announced Friday.

In her brief tenure with Arizona State, Sanders led the program in home runs with 21 and RBIs with 63 last season.

Sanders joins Arizona State teammate Alynah Torres in transferring to Oklahoma during the offseason.

The Sooners are coming off a landmark campaign after winning the Women’s College World Series in dominant fashion. Oklahoma will be without USA Softball National Player of the Year Jocelyn Alo next year, but their new additions add some offensive firepower.
