Texas A&M baseball lands another in-state transfer


The good news keeps coming for Texas A&M baseball, as new head coach Michael Earley will be well-equipped ahead of his inaugural 2025 season. With more than half of the roster set to return and the program gaining several new additions through the transfer portal, the team’s strength and potential are undeniable.

On Sunday, Texas A&M’s starting pitching rotation became even stronger. Former Long Beach State lefty Myles Patton is heading to College Station for a likely final collegiate season before entering the MLB Draft. Joining Patton, former Rice infielder Ben Royo will also transfer to Texas A&M.

In need of infield depth, Royo is good enough to earn a spot in the lineup after leading the Owls with 13 home runs coupled with 40 RBIs during his 2023 freshman campaign, being named to the Conference USA All-Freshman team.

While his production dropped during the 2024 season, the talent is still there. Being trained by new hitting coach Caleb Longley should improve his performance at the plate, while his defense remains top-notch.
