Free/Back Specialist Gavin McGee Commits to Denver

San Jose, California’s Gavin McGee has indicated he will swim for the University of Denver next season, joining verbal commits Blayze Jessen, Brian Copley, and Finn Kennard-Campbell in the Pioneers’ class of 2022.

“I’m excited to announce my commitment to the University of Denver! On my visit, I felt that the school had a great atmosphere, and I can’t wait to spend the next four years being part of the amazing team under Coach Brian and Coach Mark. The school is a great place to achieve my goals in both swimming and academics, and I’m enthusiastic for what’s to come. Go Pioneers!”
