ScoutU always advises our prospects to evaluate the full college experience when choosing a school. Athletes should consider academics, geography, size and campus life in addition to athletics. For 2022 prospect Rachel Wells, the top priority was her faith.

Wells (Melissa, Texas) recently committed to play softball for Delaware State University. She found that the NCAA Division I school had everything she was looking for.

“First and foremost, it was a blessing from God the almighty to be able to play softball at the next level,” Wells said. “God and family come first at Delaware State University. That was a major aspect in my search, and coach Jeff Franquet made me feel right at home. I like the fact that he values family unity and stands up for social justice. These values will help me grow as a person.”

Wells, a corner infielder, has tremendous power evident in her 80 mph exit velocity. She also booked a .500 batting average during club ball. With all that ability, dozens of college coaches took notice.

“God blessed me to receive 16 offers to play at their college, including 10 Division I,” Wells said. “I feel very honored to receive such interest.”

Wells plans to major in sports management or another field related to athletic training. Judging by her 4.16 GPA, she should be successful in whatever career she pursues. ScoutU’s Scott Woodcock agrees that the DSU Hornets are adding a special student-athlete.

“Rachel is a strong player and one of the best 2022s in the country,” Woodcock said. “She has one of the biggest bats and cleanest swings I’ve seen. Hitting may be her best attribute, but she’s also solid defensively with a big arm. Aside from being a strong athlete, Rachel has every intangible a coach would want, is disciplined and a great teammate.”

Throughout her college search, Wells had a high standard for her future university. Receiving double-digit offers — and having a trusted recruiting coordinator — definitely helped her find the ideal opportunity.

“Scott Woodcock was always straight up and honest with me,” Wells said. “His knowledge of the industry and guidance helped me in the process as well.”
