Kevin O'Sullivan, Florida land commitment from standout ACC catcher via transfer portal
Kevin O’Sullivan’s Florida staff has landed a big-time transfer via the portal. Former Virginia Tech catcher Brody Donay is returning to the Sunshine State to continue his career in Gainesville.
Donay, a 4-year varsity catcher at Lakeland (Florida) Christian High School, has completed just his freshman season of college baseball. He has 2 more seasons of college ball before being eligible again for the MLB Draft.
Transfer News: Virginia Tech C Brady Donay is transferring to the University of Florida. Arguably the most powerful backstop in college baseball is headed to Gainesville.
