Jay Johnson continues to add to his team through the transfer portal and secured the commitment of Mount St. Mary’s Deven Sheerin on Friday.

Sheerin, a freshman right hander, was elite at striking out opponents last season. He recorded 109 strikeouts in 70 innings pitched for a K/9 of 14.01. He has a fastball that was clocked as high as 98 mph and posted a 4.76 ERA with 32 walks.

Sheerin has at least another two seasons of college ball as well. He won’t be eligible for the MLB draft until 2026.
