Fitter and Faster Swim Camps 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.
Brady Samuels, a current high school junior from Muncie, Indiana, has committed to swim for Division I Purdue University. Samuels will graduate from Delta High School in spring 2021 and join the Boilermakers’ class of 2025.
Samuels is a current year-round swimmer for Cardinal Community Swim Club along with swimming for his high school team at Delta.
In 2019, Samuels was the champion in both the 100 butterfly (50.40) and 50 freestyle (21.28) at his Indiana High School Sectional (sub-state) championship meet. Earlier this year at the 2020 IHSAA Boys’ State Championships, Samuels placed 2nd in the 100 freestyle (44.74) at the same meet. Samuels, according to his coach, has “the best start in the state,” which contributes to his success in the sprint events.
According to his Instagram, Samuels said:
“I am proud to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and swimming career at Purdue University. Can’t wait to be a Boilermaker! #boilerup 🚂”
This year at the 2020 Big Ten Swimming and Diving Championships with Purdue, Samuels would have placed outside of C-finals by 2 tenths of a second in the 100 freestyle and a little over 3 tenths in the 50 freestyle. He would have been Purdue’s 7th best 100 freestyler this season.
