Players leaving OU softball in transfer portal

Avery Hodge, infielder

Sophomore infielder Avery Hodge has reportedly entered the transfer portal, per a report June 10 by D1Softball's Justin McLeod.

Hodge, who shared playing time at second base with Alynah Torres, hit .284 in 74 at-bats for the Sooners in 2024. When Torres was injured against UCLA in the Women's College World Series, Hodge held her own, hitting a combined 4 for 12 against Florida and Texas.

Hodge's double in an elimination game against the Gators kept OU alive and Hodge represented the game-tying run when she scored.

With Torres out of eligibility, Hodge was expected to play a significant role for the Sooners next season. The Richmond, Texas, native will have two years of eligibility remaining.
