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!”
