Sources: 100 Thieves set to sign BabyJ

100T have completed their VALORANT roster.

North American organization 100 Thieves is looking to complete their VALORANT roster with the acquisition of former FaZe Clan player Hunter BabyJ Schline, multiple sources told Dot Esports and journalist Max Purest Katz on Jan. 11. 

100 Thieves is in contract negotiations with the 23-year old and will look to complete the deal prior to the start of the North American VALORANT Champions Tour, which is set to begin with the open qualifier on Jan. 27. 

The team practiced with BabyJ, among other potential candidates, last week. 

If BabyJ signs for the organization he will complete the VALORANT roster following several outgoings from 100 Thieves. Former in-game leader Joshua steel Nissan was removed from the starting lineup on Sept. 27 following a report by Upcomer two days prior. 

Former Counter-Strike player Nick nitr0 Cannella was transferred from the organization on Dec. 7 which left 100 Thieves to fill two spots on the starting roster. Former substitutes Aaron b0i Thao, Johann seven Hernandez, and Quan dicey Tran were not considered for the rebuild by the organization and later released. 

BabyJ is a Sentinel player most known for his time on FaZe Clan, to which he was released in November 2021. FaZe Clan recently finished in last place at the North American Last Chance Qualifier, which secured the victor a spot at Champions in December. 

But BabyJ has found a new home alongside in-game leader Adam ec1s Eccles, who has signed for the North American team, as first reported by Upcomer. The pair will join Spencer Hiko Martin, Ethan Arnold, and Peter Asuna Mazuryk. 

100 Thieves will compete in the upcoming NA VCT event, which will begin on Jan. 27.
