Elliot Steinberg of Centennial, Colorado, has announced his verbal commitment to Xavier University Musketeers for the 2018-19 season.
“I chose Xavier University because from the moment I stepped on campus the team and coaches made me feel like part of the family. I want to thank Coach MacDonald for all of his support through this process. I cannot wait to begin swimming with the team next year and helping them win the Big East Conference Championship. Go Musketeers!!!!”
