Pitt women’s soccer coach Randy Waldrum announced the addition of a transfer to the 2020 Panthers roster on Friday, as former Oklahoma defender Hailey Davidson will be coming to Pittsburgh next season. The native of Prosper, Texas, will have two years of eligibility remaining after starting for the Sooners in 2018 and 2019.
”I chose the University of Pittsburgh to play under coach Randy and Ben Waldrum, two of the best you can find,” Davidson said. “I’m excited for this opportunity to play for Pitt and compete to win championships in one of the best conferences in the nation. I’m thrilled to be able to begin this next chapter of my college career with this team.”
During her time at Oklahoma, Davidson appeared in 38 games and made 23 starts as an underclassman. She proved to be a valuable asset in the Sooners attack as well as on defense. As a freshman, she scored four goals and logged one assist, and she followed that up with two assists in her sophomore year.
Davidson previously played alongside Pitt defender Athalie Palomo and incoming Panther Zaria Stevenson in the FC Dallas youth academy, where she was a captain under current Pitt assistant coach Ben Waldrum. She is part of a 2020 recruiting class that also includes Nyla Allen, Ione Fetsko, Eva Frankovic, Hannah Kynch, Chloe Minas, Chantelle Parker and Emily Yaple as well as Stevenson.
