Nick Fox, who hails from Arvada, Colorado and swims for Jeffco Hurricanes , has announced his verbal commitment to the University of Florida’s class of 2023, where he will join Tyler Watson in the fall of 2019.
“I am so excited to announce my commitment to swim for the University of Florida! When I visited the campus over spring break, I absolutely fell in love with the coaching staff, programs, facilities, team, campus, and most importantly, the people. I couldn’t have come to this decision without the support of my family, friends, and coaches. Sometimes opportunities come that are never expected, and I am glad I have the opportunity to swim for one of the top schools in the nation. I can’t wait to become a gator and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me! CHOMP!??”
Fox is currently in the middle of his junior season at Ralston Valley High School. Last May, as a sophomore, he placed fourth in the 200 free (1:41.89) and eighth in the 500 free (4:51.75), and he led off the medley relay (23.87) and the 400 free relay (48.45). He improved on those performances at 2017 Winter Juniors West, where he clocked a 1:41.27 in the 200 and 4:35.92 in the 500.
Last summer, Fox capped off his long course season with PBs in the 50/100/400 free and 50/100/200 back at Mount Hood Sectionals. This spring he lowered his times in the 50/100 free and 100/200 back at Speedo Super Sectionals hosted by Longhorn Aquatics.
