One year after bringing in Thatcher Hurd from the NCAA transfer portal, the LSU baseball program has landed another former UCLA pitcher.

Gage Jump, a left-hander who sat out this season while he recovered from Tommy John surgery, will join the Tigers this fall, a source confirmed to The Advocate. Kendall Rogers of D1Baseball.com was first to report the news.

Jump appeared in seven games as a UCLA freshman in 2022, when he went 1-1 with a 3.86 ERA. Jump logged 16⅓ innings, giving up seven earned runs on 10 hits, striking out 22 and walking 11.

Jump will be a third-year sophomore with three years of eligibility. A native of Aliso Viejo, California, he was the No. 43-rated overall prospect in the 2021 draft class, according to MLB.com. The San Diego Padres took him in the 18th round of that year’s draft.

Jump is the second ex-UCLA pitcher to join the Tigers staff. Right-hander Thatcher Hurd transferred last summer and proved to be a key piece of the LSU pitching staff during its run to the national championship this season.
