Jacob Johnson, who swims for Nova of Virginia Aquatics in Richmond Virginia, has verbally committed to North Carolina State University for the 2017-18 season.
Johnson is a back/fly specialist. He finished 4th in the 200 back, 11th in the 50 back, 18th in the 100 back, and 38th in the 200 free at NCSA Spring Championships.
