Arizona State added two more significant semester transfers, as a Sun Devils official confirmed freshman righthander Jason Jarvis had joined the program, as had former Louisiana State outfielder Jared Bogany.
Jarvis isn’t on the Sun Devils’ online roster, but a team official confirmed that he had enrolled in January and joined the program. He’s not yet eligible to play, as he awaits paperwork from the NCAA clearinghouse. Jarvis ranked as Arizona’s top high school talent in last year’s draft after teaming with Charles Brewer (now at UCLA) to lead Chaparral High to its fourth straight state title last spring. Jarvis also led the Arizona Firebirds to the Connie Mack World Series championship last summer, starring both as a hitter and as a pitcher. Jarvis had committed to San Diego out of high school, then instead enrolled at Chandler-Gilbert (Ariz.) JC for the fall semester before transferring in to Arizona State at the start of the spring semester.
The Sun Devils picked up another possible starter in Bogany, who just got his release from LSU earlier in the week. Bogany hit .319/.356/.393 last spring with the Tigers and was a 15th-round pick of the Pirates in 2005 but didn’t sign.
Bogany and Jarvis (if he’s cleared) join fellow semester transfers in projected Friday starter Brian Flores, a lefthander from New Mexico JC, and outfielder Matt Spencer, who transferred in this month from North Carolina.
