The University of California, Berkeley landed its second big verbal commit of the season (after Ryan Hoffer) when Daniel Carr announced his intention by Instagram today.
Carr is a senior at Cheyenne Mountain High School in Colorado Springs, Colorado. An Olympic Trials qualifier in the 100/200 backstrokes, Carr is the #16 recruit on our list of top 20 boys in the high school class of 2017. Carr swims for Pikes Peak Athletics, where he was a top-8 finisher in the 100 back, 200 back, and 100 breast at Speedo Winter Juniors West last December. Carr has a large arsenal, however, and could develop in any number of directions for the Golden Bears.
His top times include:
Carr will arrive just in time to bolster the backstroke group when world record-holder and Cal senior Ryan Murphy graduates. Before even suiting up for the Golden Bears, Carr would be a B-finalist in the 100/200 back and 400 IM, and a C finalist in the 200 IM.
