The Ontario Blue Jays are excited to announce that SS Ryan Johnston (Oakville, ON) has committed to attended Bowling Green State University (NCAA D1 – Bowling Green, OH) for the Fall of 2018.
Johnston, a long time OBJ, is in his sixth year with the program. Johnston began with the OBJ Development Program from 2012-13 before joining the Ontario Blue Jays full-time in 2013-14 at the 16 & Under level. During Ryan’s tenure with OBJ he quickly became a leader and key contributor of each team he suited up for. Ryan’s leadership was felt by his play on the field and by his character off it. Johnston showed great versatility throughout his OBJ Career playing all four infield positions, the outfield and pitched when called upon.
Johnston is joining a BGSU program that is rebuilding back into a competitor in the Mid-American Conference (MAC). Johnston looks to step into an immediate role in Bowling Green, and help lead the Falcons back to the top of the MAC.
Ryan becomes the third Ontario Blue Jays player to attend Bowling Green State University.
