As we inch closer to the start of Maryland’s 2020 campaign, it’s time to get to know the new faces on the Terps’ squad; this season the team only picked up two transfers.
Here’s a breakdown of Maryland’s two new transfers.
JR INF/C Brenton Davis — Southeast Community College (JuCo in NE)
Davis comes to Maryland after two years at Southeast CC in Beatrice, Nebraska. The Nebraska native slashed .353/.479/.555 in his first season with the Storm in 2018, finishing with 10 doubles and 17 stolen bases.
Last season Davis split his time between second and third base, with some appearances at shortstop, while batting .299 while leading the team with 43 hits, 32 runs and 28 walks. During the fall, Davis made the lineup as designated hitter, but with his experience all over the infield the junior could be a solid choice for the Terps to fill in the gaps left after last season.
JR INF Austin Chavis — Potomac State College of WVU (JuCo in WV)
A Bel Air, Maryland, native, Chavis spent two years at Potomac State before transferring to Maryland for this season. Chavis helped lead the Catamounts to a 35-11 record in 2018 and a 32-13 record in 2019.
His sophomore year at Potomac State, Chavis batted .331 in 45 games with 18 doubles, 51 RBI and a team-high seven home runs. He mainly played shortstop, turning 12 double plays last season. Though Chavis played second base during fall ball, the infielder, his experience on the left side of the infield could prove vital for the Terps this season.
