Middle Tennessee’s recent softball signee, pitcher Keri Munn had other plans in mind before making MTSU her final decision.
Munn, who is from Manchester, verbally committed to Auburn in eighth grade under previous coaches Clint and Corey Myers.
“Auburn was my first choice because they were the first SEC school to actually look at me and give me an offer,” said Munn. “The relationship with the coaches were great, they made me feel like I was going to have a great time there but, in the end, they left and it just wasn’t the right fit anymore.”
After Clint and Corey Myers departed from the program, Munn re-evaluated her decision and committed to Middle Tennessee.
“MTSU was my final decision because it’s close to home and I feel like and me coach Breeden and coach Foti had a great relationship,” said Munn. “It just felt right because the offer that they gave me was great and it felt like home.”
Munn not only gets the advantage of staying close to home but committing to MT will make it much easier for her fans to come out and watch her play.
“MTSU is getting a good kid,” said Coffee County softball head coach Brandon McWhorter. “With Keri being right down the road, hopefully this gives me an opportunity in the fall to come see her play.”
