Colin McDermott‏ Announces Verbal Commitment to Ohio State

Granville, Ohio-native Colin McDermott has elected to spend another four years in The Bill and Mae McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion, as he has given his verbal commitment to The Ohio State University’s class of 2021. McDermott swims out of McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion with the Ohio State Swim Club. He excels in back, fly and free.

The Granville High School senior has made great strides over the last two years. He has improved in all his top events, in both SCY and LCM. At the recent Dolfin ISCA Junior Championships in March, he went best times in the 100 free, 50/100 back, and 50/100 fly.

Here are his progressions over the last several seasons:

  2016-17 2015-16 2014-15
50y free 21.04 22.20 24.36
100y free 46.13 49.77 54.40
50y back 23.41 28.64
100y back 50.91 57.67 1:03.72
50y fly 22.72 28.06
100y fly 52.15 56.14 1:08.49

McDermott will join Evan Stapp and Paul DeLakis in the Buckeyes’ class of 2021.
