UL Ragin' Cajuns Softball star DJ Sanders is leaving the university and will be transferring to the University of Oregon.
Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns Softball head coach Gerry Glasco announced Sanders' transfer from the program on Sunday. The athletics department released the following statement from Coach Glasco:
During this transition period, we understand each student-athlete has a personal decision to make. We met with senior shortstop DJ Sanders several times during the one-on-one interview process and reiterated the program’s commitment to her and the commitment to competing for a national title,” Glasco said. “We appreciate all she has done for our program and wish her nothing but the best in the future.
The University of Oregon's Athletic Department confirmed on their website that the All-American shortstop will be eligible to play immediately after enrolling for the winter quarter.
Last year, Sanders was a finalist for the National Player of the Year Award and was named Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year.
