As a frosh, Johns set the fielding percentage record for a Gamecock third baseman (.978) and registered the most assists for a USC third baseman in program history with 151.
In 2020, Johns helped the team to a 17-6 record and No. 15 final ranking in both the USA Softball/ESPN.com and NFCA polls, batting .302 with four home runs and 15 RBIs and a .933 fielding percentage at the hot corner.
Johns will be a junior for OU in 2021 following the NCAA's ruling of spring-sport student-athletes receiving an extra year of eligibility after the shortened 2020 campaign.
