Arizona State University men’s swimming and diving team has added yet another verbal commitment to what it turning out to be a stellar class of 2022: two-time VHSL All-American Noah Desman from Clifton, Virginia will join Cody Bybee, Cole Kilburn, Eddie Michael, Elijah Warren, Ethan Luc, Gage Kohner, Jack Edgemond, Jack Kucharczyk, Jack Little, Jackson Etter, Jakob Icimsoy, Khalil Fonder, Liam Bresette, and Noah Henry in Tempe next fall.
“I chose Arizona State because I felt that it offered the best fit of academics and athletics based on my goals. I am excited to work with Coach Bowman and the amazing team he is building!”
Desman is a versatile swimmer who specializes mainly in free, fly, and IM. As a senior from Centreville High School, he placed second in the 200 free (1:38.61) at the 2018 Virginia State High School Class 6 State Championships. He also took sixth in the 100 free (46.29 in prelims) and anchored both the 200 free and 200 medley relays (fastest anchor was 21.01).

Last summer he competed in the 100/200 free, 100 fly, and 200 IM at NCSA Summer Championship, earning best times in all his events.
