The University of Southern California men’s swimming and diving team has received its second verbal commitment in as many days. Andy Lee of Great Neck South High School and Laguardia Aquatic Club in Long Island, New York added his verbal to the Trojans’ class of 2023, joining Trent Martinez who committed yesterday, and Ivan Puskovitch who made his intention known a month ago.
“I am so excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at the University of Southern California! I want to thank my family, friends, and coaches for helping me get this far. Fight On! ✌🏼✌🏼”
