Touma commits to USC Upstate
The Ontario Blue Jays are excited to announce that RHP Lukas Touma (Toronto, ON) has committed to further his academic and baseball career at the University of South Carolina Upstate (NCAA DI - Spartanburg, SC). Touma joined OBJ as a 17 year old and has become a staple in every OBJ Pitching Rotation that he is apart of. Lukas is a graduate of William Lyon MacKenzie Collegiate Institute location in Toronto.
Touma will join a strong Spartans program that was off to a hot start in 2020 under a new coaching staff lead by Mike McGuire. Lukas will look to hop into the rotation for USC in 2021 and make an immediate impact for them. Touma will also battle it out with OBJ teammate, David Coleman in the Big South for years to come!
Touma is the first Ontario Blue Jays player to attend the University of South Carolina Upstate.
