Three Iowa softball recruits signed their national letters of intent to join the team starting in the 2015-16 season.

Erin Riding of McKinney, Texas, and Brooke Rozier of Jefferson City, Missouri, will join the team as freshmen in 2015.

Mallory Kilian of Fort Dodge, Iowa, is a utility player as well as a pitcher and posted a batting average of .500 last season. She will be only the third Iowa native on the roster next season.

Head coach Marla Looper added another talented pitcher in Riding. As a high-school freshman, Riding was named a Max Preps Freshman All-American. Last season as a junior, she helped lead her 18U club team to a sixth-place finish at the Gold Triple Crown USA Nationals.

Rozier, is a catcher out of Jefferson City. She holds almost every batting record at her high school and helped leader her team to a third-place finish at state last season.

“It’s been a long time coming, signing day seems like it should have happened a long time ago,” Looper said in a statement. “They committed early, have wanted to be Hawkeyes, and are ready to get here. They’re already bleeding Black and Gold.”
