Drake Stallworth of Fishers, Indiana has announced his verbal commitment to Auburn University. He will join fellow class of 2023 commits Aidan Stoffle, Christian Sztolcman, Daniel Berlitz, Davis Edwards, Grady Wheeler, Jack Armstrong, Lleyton Smith, Niklas Eberly, and Tyler Babinec in the fall of 2019.
“I am beyond excited to announce my verbal commitment to Auburn University! When I visited the campus and met the coaching staff, I immediately knew it was the right place for me. The best word to describe my experience is “magical”, and I am truly grateful for having this opportunity to compete at such a high level. I’d like to thank my family, coaches, and teammates for supporting me on this journey to my final decision!”
A butterfly and freestyle specialist, Stallworth swims for Fishers High School and Fishers Area Swimming Tigers.
