Wildwood, Missouri sprinter Jack Dolan, #3 on our list of the top boys in the high school class of 2019, has announced his verbal commitment to swim for Arizona State University in the fall of 2019.
“I chose ASU because I loved everything about the school. The coaching staff, facilities, the team, and the school itself are all first class. I couldn’t be more excited to be a Sun Devil!”
With a time of 19.62, 16-year-old Dolan is the top 50-freestyler in his class. He ranks 3rd all-time for 15-16 boys behind Michael Andrew (19.24) and Ryan Hoffer (19.38) and ahead of Drew Kibler (19.66), David Curtiss (19.75), and, yes, Caeleb Dressel (19.82). Dolan ranks 5th all-time in the 100 free (43.61) and 5th in the 200 free (1:34.78). Times like those are a nice shot in the arm for ASU’s sprint program. At NCAAs this year, Dolan would have been the Sun Devils’ second 50 freestyler at 38th place behind outgoing senior Andrew Porter (34th with 19.34). He would have been 38th in the 100, as well, and 29th in the 200, where two ASU swimmers made the B-final (sophomore Cameron Craig and freshman Grant House).
Dolan is the top-ranked recruit making a verbal to the Sun Devils. Arizona State got an early jump on the 2019-20 recruiting cycle with class of 2023 verbal commitments from Jace Brown, Jarod Arroyo, Julian Hill, and Scott Lyons. As a reminder, the wave of newcomers expected in Tempe next fall is expected to consist of Carter Swift, 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, Noah Desman, and Noah Henry.
A junior at Eureka High School, Dolan swims for Rockwood Swim Club. Since Winter Juniors West, where he won the 100 free and 200 free and scored new PBs in the 50/200 free and 100 back, he has competed at Columbia Sectionals and NSCA Spring Championship and lowered his best times in the 50/100 fly and 200 back.
