NSU baseball signs 2 JUCO transfers

From Staff reports

— Northeastern State University baseball coach Travis Janssen has announced the addition of two players for the 2014 season.

Pitchers Waylon Davis and Dustin Hurlbutt, both junior college transfers, will have two years of eligibility remaining.

“Waylon and Dustin bring experience to our pitching staff. Being junior college guys, they each have two years under their belt,” Janssen said. “They will both come in and compete for starting spots in the rotation. We are excited to get both of these young men into our program.”

The duo of Davis and Hurlbutt joins a 2014 class that already includes Jordan Booth, Bryce Davenport, Ryan Helsley, Cheyenne Vaughn, and Karter Woodruff.

Davis is a 5-foot-10 left-hander from Cedar Valley College. The Grand Prairie, Texas, native made 31 appearances over two years with the Suns, posting a 6-7 record with two saves. He also sported a 3.37 earned run average in 139 innings pitched, and he also set the school record with 130 strikeouts.

Hurlbutt is a right-hander that is 6-1 from Coffeyville Community College. Hurlbutt, from Coffeyville, Kan., appeared in 25 games for the Ravens in junior college ball. He had a ERA of 6.36 in 104 2/3 innings pitched.
