Carl will be part of the Louisville class of 2021 along with fellow-commits Michael Hampel and Nick Albiero.
Carl explained to SwimSwam, “One of the main reasons I began looking at their program (besides their interest in me) was that my high school assistant coach swam there. I knew they were a program to watch out for especially this spring at NCAAs and now in the future for sure.”
