Jacksonville, Florida’s Cole Crane (“Sterling Crane” in SWIMS) has verbally committed to swim at the University of Texas beginning in the 2019-20 school year. He will be part of an already-stacked class of 2023 made up of verbal commits Caspar Corbeau, Ethan Harder, Jake Foster, and Peter Larson.
Crane is a junior at the Episcopal School of Jacksonville. He won the 50 free state title at the 2017 FHSAA Class 1A Championships in November, going a personal-best 20.40. He was runner-up in the 100 fly (48.44) and led off Episcopal’s 7th-place 200 free relay (20.79) and 7th place 400 free relay (45.89).
