Alley Perkins, a junior college All-American from California, has signed to play softball for Tennessee.
Perkins, a 5-foot-4 left-handed hitter, played two seasons at Santa Ana College.
“Alley Perkins is a great addition to our team,’’ UT co-head coach Ralph Weekly said in a school release.
“She is a very good athlete who brings a blend of speed and power to the field. ... She can play a lot of different positions and will fill a very important role as a utility player.’’
Perkins hit .395 with two home runs and stole 42 bases as a sophomore. She chose UT over Idaho State, Cal State Fullerton and Louisiana Lafayette.
