After those of Jack Moore, Jean-Pierre Khouzam, Matt Brownstead, and Noah Nichols, the University of Virginia men’s swimming and diving team has added a verbal commitment from Brian Brennan to the class of 2024.
“I chose UVA because of the outstanding academics and athletics. The campus, coaches and team create an awesome environment that felt like home. Thanks to my family, coaches and teammates for all the encouragement and support. Go HOOS! #levelup #classof2020”
A Devon, Pennsylvania native, Brennan is a junior at The Haverford School. He won the 100 free (44.96) and placed third in the 50 free (20.54) at the 2018 Eastern Interscholastic Swimming & Diving Championships. He also led off Haverford’s runner-up 200 free relay (20.47) and winning 400 free relay (45.20) that clinched the team title for the Fords. Brennan swims year-round for Suburban Seahawks Club.
