“I am both proud and excited to announce my commitment to UC Berkeley! I know that this is the best decision for me because of the opportunity to swim under Dave Durden and Chase Kreitler, as well as the fantastic academic program and the great group of guys that I will have the privilege of training with. Go Bears!”
