Little League World Series star Mo'ne Davis, who dazzled on the mound for her Philadelphia team, has reportedly made her college decision.

Davis, who became the first girl in Little League World Series history to throw a shutout, will be playing softball at Hampton University.

The Philadelphia Tribune is reporting the news:

Mo’ne Davis, who four years ago hurled her way into the annals of the Little League World Series and the hearts of the sports world as a pitcher for the Taney Dragons of South Philadelphia, has decided she will attend Hampton University next fall.

Davis, who used a 70-plus mph fastball to become the first girl to win a Little League World Series game as a pitcher and the first girl to toss a shutout in Little League post-season history, selected Hampton over Bethune-Cookman University, Southern University, Coppin State University, the University of Massachusetts and the University of Pennsylvania.

Hampton’s communications department won Davis over, said her parents, Lakeisha and Mark Williams.

Davis was a multi-sport high school athlete. She played basketball, softball and soccer at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy in Pennsylvania.
