South African centre Brad Barritt has made the switch from the Durban-based Sharks to Watford-based Saracens.
The 21-year-old has signed a three year deal with Eddie Jones' side and will join the club in November after the Currie Cup.
His transfer follows hot of the heels of World Cup winning prop Wikus van Heerden into the club. Last season's Heineken Cup semi-finalists have bolstered their squad over the summer with the arrivals of England lock Steve Borthwick and Wales' versatile forward Michael Owen.
And Saracens director of rugby Eddie Jones said: "Bradley's an exciting player and we're delighted he's joining Saracens.
"He's a talented footballer who can control games but he also has a physical edge to his game."
Jones added: "Having spoken at length to Bradley, I know he is looking forward to working with the coaching team at Saracens to help in the development of his game and also broaden his rugby knowledge.
"He won't be joining us until the conclusion of the Currie Cup but his arrival will add significant strength in depth to the squad."
Barritt, who has made 58 appearances for the Sharks and can also play at fly-half, told Sharks' website that the chance to play in England was a "unique opportunity" to broaden his horizons.
"I want to emphasise the point that I am not turning my back on the Sharks or Springbok rugby," said Barritt, who will be 22 on Friday.
"This is a unique opportunity for me as a young player to grow and improve by playing in different conditions."
