Infielder Jana Johns has transferred to OU, head coach Patty Gasso announced Friday.

Johns played three seasons at South Carolina, but will join the Sooners as a junior, due to the NCAA allowing an extra year of eligibility in response to the coronavirus pandemic that cut the 2020 season short.

Johns started every game of her career at third base and hit 25 home runs while batting .301 over three seasons. She was selected to the All-SEC Second Team as a sophomore and held a .978 fielding percentage as a freshman, the single-season record for Gamecocks third basemen. 

Johns is the second Southeastern Conference infielder to transfer to OU in the last two seasons, joining junior Taylon Snow.
