Brittany Finney Transfers to Ole Miss

Mike Smith's Ole Miss Rebels have capitalized off an impressive 2016 campaign and earned a great start to the 2017 season with the addition of former Oklahoma pitcher Brittany Finney.

Finney, who played her freshman season for the Sooners and was part of the championship-winning squad, will be eligible to play immediately for the Rebels and will have three seasons of eligibility remaining.

Though seldom-used in her team's march to the national title, Finney assembled a 1.12 ERA in just under nineteen innings of work. As a high school senior, she was named the 2015 Gatorade Player of the Year for the state of Kansas.

Finney joins a pitching staff under the guidance of former all-American Taryne Mowatt, one that put together a cumulative 3.26 ERA in 2016. Replacing graduated ace Madi Osias will be part of Finney's assignment next season, as she'll join, among others, junior Elisha Jahnke, who assembled a 4.10 ERA in one hundred eleven innings a season ago.

The Rebels finished 2016 with a 41-22 record, making it to the NCAA tournament for the first time in program history.

  1. Her track record for comp ball is carrying over to college! A talented player, but commitment has been a issue for her. Played for 10-15 comp teams over her career known as a team jumper and placing blame on others. Dad has brow beat this kid into what she is today, doesn't handle failure very well.
