FL State Champ Santiago Corredor Verbally Commits to Florida Gators

Swim Florida’s Santiago Corredor will be staying in-state when he goes off to college. Corredor has verbally committed to join the SEC champion Florida Gators next fall, and will make the move from Fort Myers to Gainesville after graduating from Bishop Verot High School.

Corredor is a 3-time Florida High School 1A State champion. He’s won back-to-back titles in the 500 free, and was also the 200 free champ at last season’s meet. There, he posted personal best times of 1:37.76 and 4:23.17 in those events respectively. He was also a finalist at Speedo Winter Juniors (East) in the 500 free, swimming to a 7th place finish.

Corredor’s Top Times:

Event SCY Time
200 free 1:37.76
500 free 4:23.17
200 IM 1:50.92
400 IM 3:56.89
100 back 50.43
200 back 1:50.85

Corredor has the potential to be and immediate scorer as a freshman at the SEC Championships. His time in the 500 freestyle is already good enough to have made the C-final at last season’s SEC meet. He’s also within 8-tenths of scoring range in the 200 free.

At Florida, Corredor will train alongside Andrew Brady, Blake Manganiello, and Ben Lawless, who each scored in the 500 free at 2016 SECs. He’ll also be swimming with Bayley Main, who scored at the SEC meet as a freshman in the 200 free and 200 back.
