TRANSFER UPDATE: @OU_Baseball has landed graduate transfer righthander Luke Taggart from @UIWBaseball. Taggart has had four productive seasons for UIW. He gives the #Sooners some high quality depth. https://t.co/6yGzhMHmSR— Kendall Rogers (@KendallRogers) July 3, 2020
The graduate transfer has a career earned run average of 3.74 during his time at UIW. In 2019, he led the Cardinals with 76 strikeouts in 88 total innings pitched. He also held his opponents to a .246 batting average in his last complete season.
Taggart only appeared in four games for UIW in 2020, due to the season's cancellation amid COVID-19 concerns. The Portland, Texas, native led his team to a 2-2 record in that span.
With Taggart joining the Sooners, head coach Skip Johnson now guides an even more loaded team heading into the 2021 season.
