Brad Prolo of San Clemente, California, announced via his Instagram account that he had verbally committed to swim for Brigham Young University.
Prolo is a senior at San Clemente High School. He shared the silver medal in the 200 IM at 2016 CIF-Southern Section Division I Championships in an improbable final that saw a tie for second and another tie for fourth. He also finished third in the 100 breast, just .38 out of first place in another tight final.
Prolo swims year-round for San Clemente Aquatic Team. He was a B-finalist in both the 100y breast and 200y breast at 2015 Speedo Winter Juniors West, where he also competed in the 100/200 fly and 200 IM.
His best SCY times are:
- 100 breast – 55.58
- 200 breast – 2:02.37
- 200 IM – 1:50.16
- 100 fly – 50.56
Prolo will reinforce the Cougars’ breaststroke group that was led last year by then-senior and then-freshman, Chad and Ryan Sorensen, respectively. His times in both the 100 and 200 would have been 3rd on the list of top BYU swims from the 2015-16 season.
