A power hitter from Hueytown, Ala., Kayla Davis signed her national letter of intent to play for Alabama softball this week, adding a big bat to next year’s Crimson Tide roster.

“Kayla came to a hitting clinic here three years ago and we knew then that she needed to be in an Alabama uniform,” UA head coach Patrick Murphy said. “She has tremendous potential to be a great power hitter in the SEC with the ability to play first base or either corner outfield position.”

Davis is a senior at Hueytown High School, where she earned AL.com All-Region honors last season and All-Metro accolades the year prior. She helped lead her team to the state tournament in 2015, earning All-State honors in the process.

Last year with the Atlanta Vipers, they placed in the top 13 at PGF nationals, finished third at the USA Elite World Fastpitch Championship and were the Scenic City Showcase Super Pool champion. This upcoming year, she will play club ball with Georgia Impact-Lewis.

Davis joins Montana Fouts and Skylar Wallace among the Tide’s signees so far this week. The fall signing period lasts through Nov. 15, with signees set to join the team for the 2019 season.
