Dylan Boyd, who just wrapped up his freshman season with the Arizona State Sun Devils, has announced his transfer decision to the University of Michigan.
Boyd is a mid-distance freestyler who anchored ASU’s 4×200 free relay at NCAAs in March. Splitting a 1:35.60 on the anchor leg, he helped ASU clock a 6:16.05 to take 10th overall and earn All-American honorable mention status.
- 100 free 44.83
- 200 free 1:36.57
- 500 free 4:21.11
- 100 fly 49.63
- 200 fly 1:46.55
Boyd has had some turbulence in his college decision process. In mid-October of 2016, Boyd signed during the fall signing period with Wisconsin. Then, during the summer of 2017, Boyd announced he had made a change due to family reasons and would instead attend Arizona State.
Yesterday, however, he posted on his Instagram (below) that he’d be transferring to swim for Michigan, which is also in the Big Ten, like Wisconsin.
Michigan will immediately benefit from Boyd’s presence. His times in the 500 free and 200 free would’ve been 4th and 5th, respectively, on Michigan’s 2017-18 top times list. He’d also have been 5th in the 200 fly.
The Wolverines are known for producing mid-distance freestyle talent, and with top recruit Patrick Callan coming in, they’ll have a strong set of new faces for mid-distance free.
