Ontario Blue Jays SS Owen Jansen has committed to Purdue University (NCAA D1 – West Lafayette, IN). Jansen is in his third year with the Ontario Blue Jays, and attends Iroquois Ridge Secondary School in Burlington, Ontario. The versatile infielder, Jansen brings a consistent advanced approach from the left side of the plate while playing outstanding defence around the infield. Jansen led the OBJ Fall Collegiate Team in homeruns (2) while hitting for a .333 average. Jansen looks to be a big piece of the Purdue Boilermakers return to the top of the BIG 10.
Owen follows in the footsteps of former Ontario Blue Jays, SS Tyler Johnston who attended Purdue prior to finishing his collegiate career at the University of Auburn.
