High school junior Will Davis of Jacksonville, Florida has verbally committed to swim for the University of Florida beginning with the 2018-19 season. He specializes in sprint free, fly and back and is one of the 68 junior swimmers who was invited to participate in the USA Swimming National Select Camp in Colorado Springs last month.
Davis is coming off a strong 2016 that saw him improve in every event he swam, from off events to specialties, in SCY and in LCM. He ended the year with an excellent performance at Winter Juniors East. Individually, Davis placed 3rd in the 50y free, 4th in the 100y free, and 6th in the 100y fly and he went best times in all three. He also lowered his seed times in the 100y back and 200y back, qualifying for the B final in the former but scratching out of the final to concentrate on the 100y fly. Davis contributed to Bolles’ winning 200 free relay, 400 free relay, 200 medley relay, and 400 medley relay.
His top SCY times include:
- 50 free – 19.82
- 100 free – 44.19
- 100 fly – 47.85
- 100 back – 49.47
- 200 back – 1:49.28
Joining Davis in the University of Florida class of 2022 will be fellow early commit Trey Freeman.
