After leading TCU to a recent College World Series appearance, sophomore left fielder Boomer White is transferring to Texas A&M due to “personal reasons.”
“What an incredible two years it has been,” White wrote in a statement posted to his Twitter page. “With constant prayer and discussion with my family and close friends, I have decided to spend the remainder of my college career at Texas A&M.”
White drove in the go-ahead run against Texas Tech closer Jonny Drozd in the bottom of the eighth inning after TCU had fallen behind in the top half in both teams’ opening game at the CWS.
TCU coach Jim Schlossnagle released a short statement Saturday.
“We would like to thank Boomer and his family for their efforts during his time at TCU and wish him the best in all of his future endeavors,” Schlossnagle said in the statement.
White was also named the Fort Worth Regional MVP. He had seven hits, including the game-winner of TCU’s 22-inning game against Sam Houston State, in the regional.
“It was a fantastic two years and I love every one of y’all,” White wrote. “I’m excited to start this new journey in my life and see what God has in store for me.”
