Done deal: Auburn tigers confirm the signing of another top experienced star to roster

After Texas A&M transfer infielder Jett Johnston revealed his intentions to move to Auburn in a social media post on Sunday night, Butch Thompson and the Auburn baseball club continue to find success in the transfer portal.
Johnston will be coming to The Plains after a first season in which he and the Aggies advanced to the Men’s College World Series championship game before losing to Tennessee. Since then, a few players have transferred to Texas A&M as a result of Jim Schlossnagle leaving College Station to take a head coaching position at the University of Texas.

Johnston spent the 2024 season primarily as a reserve infielder, making 13 appearances and accumulating 16 at-bats. With three hits, two RBIs, five walks, and five scored runs, he wrapped off the season. Within the field, Johnston recorded two putouts.

After graduating from Knoxville, Tennessee’s Farragut High School, Johnston was rated by Perfect Game as the ninth-best third baseman and the 180th best overall prospect in the class of 2023. Johnston concluded his prep career at Farragut with two state championships. He finished his senior year with a.401 average, fifty hits, thirteen home runs, forty-eight RBIs, and twenty-six walks.
Johnston joins Samford’s transfer class, increasing Auburn’s incoming class to eight players due to his commitment. Eric Snow, a transfer from Birmingham to Southern; Lucas Steele, a USF transfer Sam Dutton from LSU, Andrew Dutton from Cal Baptist, Bristol Carter from East Carolina, and Cal-Baptist Mason Koch is transferred by Creighton and Ryan Hetzler.
