Six-time Texas 6A state champion Jack LeVantour #11 on the list of top 20 boys from the class of 2018, has made a verbal commitment to swim for the Stanford University Cardinal beginning with the 2018-19 season.

LeVant told SwimSwam, “Ever since I was a kid, I have dreamed of going to Stanford. And now that dream has become a reality. I am so humbled to have the opportunity to swim at Stanford!”

When I was 9 years old, my coach gave me this cap for breaking a minute in the 100 yard freestyle, and I hung it up on my bedroom wall. And now, 8 years later, I am honored to announce that I have verbally committed to swim and study at Stanford University. #GoCard
