Andy Archer, a 6’5 right-handed pitcher who spent the last four seasons at Georgia Tech, yesterday announced on his Twitter page that he will join the University of Hawaii baseball program as a graduate transfer.
In 2021, Archer went 5-5 for the Yellow Jackets, striking out 77 batters in 75 innings and amassing an ERA of 4.80. In an NCAA Regional game against Indiana State, he pitched a complete-game shutout, allowing only 4 hits and collecting 7 strikeouts. He was named to the NCAA Nashville Regional All-Tournament Team for his performance.
Archer is the latest player to join the Hawaii program and its new head coach, Rich Hill. Earlier this week, Damien alum Jordan Donahue, a former Hawaii State Player of the Year, announced that he was transferring to UH from Oregon State. That same day, former Punahou standout Kyson Donahue (Jordan’s cousin) announced that he will return home to play for the Rainbow Warriors. Kyson Donahue previously played at Arizona.
