Big Ten Champion Cora Dupre Enters NCAA Transfer Portal

After one season at Indiana University, Cora Dupre has entered the NCAA transfer portal. In her freshman season, Dupre was the Big Ten Champion in the 200 yard free.

Dupre, who originally committed to Texas before swapping her verbal commitment to Indiana, committed to the Hooisers when their sprint group was led by Coley Stickels. Prior to her freshman season, Stickels left to become the head coach at the University of Alabama. At least two members of the Indiana women’s team, Julia Wolf and Morgan Scott, followed him to Tuscaloosa.

Dupre scored 58 points individually at the 2020 Big Ten Women’s Swimming & Diving Championships, placing 4th in the 50 free and 1st in the 200 free. She was disqualified for a false start in her 3rd event, the 100 free, in prelims. Those 58 points, even in just 2 individual events, made her Indiana’s 5th-best scoring swimmer at the meet.

Dupre was to enter the 2020 NCAA Championships as the 8th seed in the 200 free, the 12th seed in the 100 free, and the 16th seed in the 50 free prior to the cancellation of that meet.

She leaves Indiana with the 3 fastest 50 frees in program history and the 3 fastest 100 frees in program history.

Best Times in Yards:

Prior to Indiana At Indiana
50 free 22.46 21.9
100 free 48.96 47.84
200 free 1:45.27 1:43.61
100 fly 54.08 52.9
100 back 54.68 52.47
200 IM 1:59.76 1:57.33

She also swam the leadoff backstroke leg on Indiana’s 400 medley relay and the butterfly on Indiana’s 200 medley relay (which was disqualified).

Dupre, who originally committed to Texas before swapping her verbal commitment to Indiana, committed to the Hoosiers when their sprint group was led by Coley Stickels. Prior to her freshman season, Stickels left to become the head coach at the University of Alabama. At least two members of the Indiana women’s team, Julia Wolf and Morgan Scott, followed him to Tuscaloosa.

Stickels’ replacement, Jonty Skinner, retired before the end of the season.

She grew up training with the Mason Manta Rays in Cincinnati, Ohio. Her 100 free best time in long course is 56.12, and her 200 free best time in long course is 2:01.47.

Did she inform you of her entry into the transfer portal? Or did your super secret source?

I have no problem with reporting, but when you’re reporting on information you really shouldn’t have access to, that seems problematic to me.

Breaking: Man has problem with journalists reporting news

One of the main jobs of reporters is to find out news the layman doesn’t have access to. For SwimSwam, that includes the transfer portal.

Breaking: Man has no problem with journalist or news. I’m not a Trumpian.

However, I think there’s a reason the public doesn’t have access to the transfer portal. If an athlete wanted it to be public that they’re in the transfer portal, that’s fine. But I don’t think that’s what’s happening.

The athlete cannot expect privacy as soon as s/he starts talking to other colleges.

As someone with access to the transfer portal, I can confirm that she’s been publicly in the transfer portal since yesterday

I see both sides but I would think now, since swimswam’s coverage of all things swimming, most swimmers know the minute they enter the transfer portal, everyone will know. I would hope by the time a student-athlete enters the transfer portal, they have spent much time and discussion about their Swimming careers with their coaches and family.

So the 1000+ people with access to the transfer portal should all pinky promise not to repeat any of the names they see?

I’m just confused as to who has access to the transfer portal? If it’s truly public, shouldn’t we all have it?

I don’t understand why this is so incendiary.
