Adam Osowski announced his verbal committed to Columbia University, saying, “I committed to Columbia because of the amazing team and second to none academics. I can’t wait to be apart [sic] of such an amazing team next year. Go Lions!”

Osowski is a senior at William S. Hart High School in Santa Clarita, California. He specializes in the entire range of freestyle events and placed fourth in the 100 (45.35) and eighth in the 200 (1:40.15) at the 2016 CIF-Southern Section Division I Championships.

During long course season last summer, he competed at Stanford Futures in the 50/100/200/400m freestyles, then went on to represent Southern California Swimming at the all-star meet, North American Challenge Cup.
