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.
Brian Uribe, a current high school senior from West New York, New Jersey, has committed to swim for DIII Tufts University beginning in the fall. He will be graduating from high school in the spring of 2021 and will join the Jumbos’ class of 2025.
Uribe is a current swimmer for Scarlet Aquatics where he is a Futures and Speedo Junior Nationals qualifier. The 2018 and 2019 USA Swimming Scholar All-American was a two-time champion in the 400 LCM IM (4:42.19) and the 200 LCM backstroke (2:08.46) at the 2019 New Jersey Swimming Long Course Junior Olympics.
He also won the 200 LCM backstroke with a time of 2:08.32 at the 2019 Speedo Champions Series – Rutgers.
“I am BEYOND excited to finally announce my verbal commitment to continue both my academic and athletic careers at Tufts University! Thank you so much to my family, coaches, and friends who have supported me along the way to make this possible. I can’t wait to be part of the Jumbo family! #rollbos!!”

At the 2020 NESCAC Championships with the Jumbos, Uribe would have had multiple finals performances. He would have placed 2nd in the 400 IM (4:00.88), 10th in the 200 IM (1:53.11) and 12th in the 200 backstroke (1:52.95) with his current best times.
His time in the 400 IM would have made him Tuft’s fastest 400 IM’er at that meet.
At this meet, the Tufts men placed 2nd as a team and 29 were given CSCAA Scholar All-American honors.
