Fitter and Faster Swim Camps is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment news. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that is pursued with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who supported them on their journey.
Devin Esser, a current high school senior from Phoenix, Arizona, has committed to swim for Division I University of California at San Diego. Esser will graduate from Veritas Prep in spring 2021 join the Triton’s class of 2025.
Esser is a current swimmer for the Swim Neptune swim team. At the 2019 AIA DIII Boys State Championships, he was the state champ in both the 200 freestyle (1:41.50) and 500 freestyle (4:37.42).
He also placed 3rd in the 1,000 freestyle at the 2020 Arizona Senior Open Championships with a time of 9:30.49.
“I am very excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at the University of California – San Diego! I am beyond thankful to Coach Marko and Coach Kirk for this opportunity and would like to thank my family, Coach Joe, and all of my coaches, friends and teammates for supporting me along the way. I am super excited to be a part of the Triton family – Go Tritons!!!”
At the MPSF Championships with the Tritons, Esser would have had multiple finals performances. Most notably, he would have placed 9th in the 200 butterfly (1:50.13), 11th in the 1650 freestyle (16:07.91) and 15th in the 500 freestyle (4:34.75) with his current best times.
His time in the 200 butterfly would have made him UCSD’s fastest 200 butterflier at the MPSF Championships.
