Crow Canyon Country Club Shark Brennan Cheney has verbally committed to the University of Georgia for fall of 2021. His older brother, Teagan Cheney, is a rising senior with the Bulldogs while rising sophomore Zoie Hartman also trained club with Crow Canyon before UGA.

I’m very excited to announce my verbal commitment to fulfill my life long dream of swimming and studying at the University of Georgia! Thank you to my family, friends and coaches for pushing me and helping me achieve my dream. Glory goes to God. Go Dawgs!

  • 200 free – 1:42.52

As a high school sophomore, Cheney scored in B-finals of the 200 free and 100 fly at the 2019 CIF North Section Championships representing San Ramon Valley High School.

During the 2019-20 season, Georgia was led in the sprints by rising sophomore Dillon Downing (19.3/43.0), and he was their only sprinter under 20.0 in the 50 and 44.0 in the 100. The Bulldogs will only have one season left with their top 100 butterflier, Camden Murphy (45.3), but they’ll get Harrison Homans (46.8) for three more seasons along with Downing.

Also committed to the Bulldogs’ class of 2025 are TJ Pittenger, Henre LouwJackson BatesMitchell NortonRyan Wylie, Sam Parker and Zach Kohm.

Am I wrong or do his times seem a bit underwhelming for UGA?

That’s what happens when you have a brother on the team

Y’all are jerks, there is such things as a walk on. People do have to fill out a roster. Good quality people go a long way. While not the fastest in the pool who knows how he’ll turn out!

In my opinion he is taking away a valuable spot from someone who is more deserving who would also walk on.

I don’t think having a brother on the team should play that big of an impact in recruiting.

This is unbelievable. There are tons of factors besides having a sibling on the team and his current times that led this young man to commit to UGA. Just let the man celebrate!!

Don’t forget, these are also sophomore year high school, probably, like most 2021 grads, without a Spring Championship meet to improve.

His 100 free best time is from March 2020…

Very good point. In California, their HS season was cancelled, so he lost that. He did have Sectionals (where he swam best times), but in prior seasons, his HS championships were where he swam best times.
