Breaststroker Corban McIntosh Makes Verbal Commitment to UCSB

Fitter and Faster Swim Clinics 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.

Corban McIntosh from Novato, California has announced his verbal commitment to the University of California, Santa Barbara for 2020-21. The two-time USA Swimming Scholastic All-American will suit up with Justin Hussong in the class of 2024.

“Through my recruiting process I looked at many schools. One school in particular met and exceeded all of my requirements. I am extremely confident in my choice to join the class of 2024 at the University of California, Santa Barbara. UCSB offers everything that I desire in a school, providing amazing academic resources, facilities, and a team I can call my family. I look forward to my development not only in the pool but in my education as well. GO GAUCHOS!!!!”

McIntosh is a senior at Saint Vincent De Paul High School. He was the 4th-place finisher in the 100 breast with a PB of 56.83 at the 2019 CIF North Coast Section Championships before going on to the California State Meet. There, he came in 25th in prelims. McIntosh does his year-round swimming with Marin Pirates. He competed at 2018 Winter Juniors West in the 100/200 breast and scored a PB in the latter. He also notched a best time in the 200 IM in time trials. This summer he swam the 100/200 breast at Speedo Junior Nationals but most of his best LCM times came out of the Santa Clarita Sectionals meet. He took 5th in the 100 breast (1:04.98) and 9th in the 200 breast (2:22.87), and he also lowered his lifetime bests in the 200 free (2:06.41) and 400 IM (4:54.83).

Top SCY times:

  • 200 breast – 2:04.03
  • 100 breast – 56.69
  • 50 breast – 26.54
  • 200 IM – 1:56.46
  • 400 IM – 4:12.37
  • 50 free – 21.72

McIntosh would have scored for the Gauchos at 2019 MPSF Championships in the C finals of the 100 breast, 200 breast, and 400 IM. He’ll overlap two years with UCSB breaststrokers Alec Cullen and Anthony Moore
