NORMAN University of Oklahoma head softball coach Patty Gasso announced Friday the addition of transfer infielder Jana Johns from the University of South Carolina. 

Johns joins Oklahoma after playing three seasons for the Gamecocks where she started every game of her career at third base. The Calhoun, Ga., product has hit 25 home runs, driven in 98 runs and holds a slash line of .301/.444/.577 in her collegiate career. 

Johns helped the Gamecocks to their second super regional appearance in program history as a freshman in 2018 and to the regional finals as a sophomore in 2019. She collected All-SEC Freshman and Defensive Team honors following her first season in Columbia. As a sophomore, Johns was named to the All-SEC Second Team and collected all-region accolades. 

She set numerous South Carolina program records including a tie for most home runs in a season in 2019, launching 15 roundtrippers to go with 56 hits, 50 runs and 44 RBIs. 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. 

She plans to finish her undergraduate degree at Oklahoma in sports management with a minor in biology.
