Multiple sources told Extra Inning Softball this afternoon that Jana Johns, the junior infielder at the Univ. of South Carolina, is entering the transfer portal.
The durable athlete had started every game in her career at USC, 146 total, before deciding she would play her last two years elsewhere (a second year gained due to the COVID-19 extra year of eligibility granted by the NCAA).
Johns played in 23 games for the Gamecocks this spring before the season ended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She hit .302 with a .443 on-base percentage and led the team with 42 total bases, was tied for second with four home runs and was third in RBIs with 15. She also led South Carolina with 11 hit-by-pitches and defensively had a .933 fielding percentage.
