#4 Recruit Adam Chaney Makes Commitment To Florida For Fall of 2020

Fitter and Faster Swim Clinics is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment news. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that is pursued with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who supported them on their journey.

Ohio sprinter Adam Chaneya World Juniors medalist and one of the top recruits in his class, will join the University of Florida next fall. The school announced the addition on social media today:

Chaney was the last top-20 recruit in the high school class of 2020 to make his college commitment. We had him ranked #4 in that class, which is an outstanding class with some high-potential 2020-and-beyond Olympians near the top. As of those ranks, Chaney had the best 100-yard free time in his class, along with a 50 free near the best in the class.

He’s also improved his 200 free dramatically and has solid 100s of fly and back. He’s also coming off an excellent long course season in which he jumped inside the top 15 Americans of any age in the 50 free and inside the top 25 in the 100 free. Last summer, he won four medals at the 2019 World Junior Championships: individual bronze in the 50 free along with two relay golds (boys 4×100 free relay & mixed 4×100 free relay) and one relay silver (boys 4×100 medley relay).

Chaney’s Top Times

  • 50y free: 19.64
  • 100y free: 43.00
  • 200y free: 1:35.99
  • 100y back: 47.10
  • 100y fly: 48.14
  • ——————–
  • 50m free: 22.40
  • 100m free: 49.27
  • 200m free: 1:52.13
  • 100m back: 54.96
  • 100m fly: 55.66

Chaney competes for the Mason Manta Rays out of Mason, Ohio, and attends Mason High School. He’ll join a Florida program that has recruited very well the past couple of years, but had no top 20 recruits committed from the high school class of 2020. Florida was the training base for record-smashing sprinter Caeleb Dressel, and last year helped freshman Will Davis make two SEC B finals and earn an NCAA invite.

Chaney joins a Florida collegiate class of 2024 that includes in-state prospects Brendan Peacock, Caleb Kravitz, Jace Crawford and Trevor McGovern.

I don’t know why a sprinter would pick a program like Florida. I can’t remember the last time an even decent sprinter came out of Florida. SMH. 😂😂
