#16 Daniel Carr Makes Verbal Commitment to Cal Golden Bears

cal_m_carr1

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:

  SCY LCM
200 back 1:43.38 2:01.73
100 back 48.10 54.95
200 breast 2:24.21
100 breast 55.42 1:05.83
400 IM 3:53.36 4:30.90
200 IM 1:48.11 2:05.25

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.

If you have a commitment to report, please send an email to [email protected].
