Guilherme Caribe, from Clube Dos Empregados Da Petrobrás (CEPE) in Brazil, has announced his verbal commitment to study and swim at the University of Tennessee in the class of 2026.
“I am so excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and swimming career at University to Tennessee! My goal is to study at a university that can offer me a good balance between academics and a good training structure, and I feel as though Tennessee is the best fit for me. I was amazed with the facilities, structure and all the attention that I got from the coaches. I aim to contribute as much as I can to the program. I wanted to thank my family, friends and ASM Scholarships for all the help and support to make my dream come true. GO VOLS”
