HS Junior Peter Larson Verbally Commits to Join Brother JohnThomas at Texas

According to his club team, Edina Swim Club, high school junior Peter Larson has made a verbal commitment to the University of Texas class of 2023. He follows Oregon’s Caspar Corbeau, who has also made a verbal pledge to the Longhorns for 2019-20. Larson will join his older brother, JohnThomas Larson, who is currently a freshman on the Texas squad.

Larson hails from Bloomington, Minnesota. A versatile talent whose range includes mid-distance freestyle, IM and backstroke, he competed in the 50/100/200/500 free, 100/200 back and 200 IM at Winter Juniors West and was an A-finalist in the 200 free (6th) and 200 back (4th). Larson also took 11th in the 100 back, 17th in the 400 IM and 21st in the 50 free. He took home new times in the 50/200/500 free, 50/100/200 back, and 200 IM. In long-course season, Larson went best times in the 50/100 back at U.S. Nationals and he wrapped up his summer season at NCSA Summer Championship with PBs in the 50/100/200/400 free, 200 back, and 400 IM.

While not quite NCAA-ready, the high school junior’s best times would have nonetheless made the A finals at 2017 Big 12 Championships in the 200 free, 100/200 back, and 200/400 IM.

Top SCY times:

  • 100 free – 45.61
  • 200 free – 1:37.63
  • 500 free – 4:24.78
  • 100 back – 49.30
  • 200 back – 1:45.10
  • 200 IM – 1:50.82
  • 400 IM – 3:56.86

Most confusing comment on the entire website right here. Are you a Cal fan or a Texas fan? Are you old? I have so many questions.

Surely it’s possible to be an old Golden Bear, yet also be happy for this kid?

Minnesota weather, it’s actually not that cold up here.

I can second this. I was actually breaking a sweat while pushing stuck cars out of the foot of snow we got last night 🙂

Wow 30 in the 100 back. And I thought Ryan Murphy was fast with a 43! His 50 free could use some work though. Only 61. That’s interesting because most swimmers can do a 50 free faster than a 100 back, but I guess he doesn’t do USRPT

I don’t think so. He swam in the Minnesota state high school championships in 2017.
