Jack Dalmolin Transferring to Georgia After 1 Year at Arizona State

Cumming, Georgia-native Jack Dalmolin is headed home. After a year at Arizona State University, he has elected to transfer to the University of Georgia for 2018-19.

“I’m very excited to announce my decision to transfer to swim at the University of Georgia! Thankful for a great year at ASU but I couldn’t be more thrilled to take this next step in my life as a Bulldog! Can’t wait to be in Athens #CommitToTheG”

Dalmolin was the 2017 GHSA 6-7A state champion in the 100 breast (54.89) and 200 IM (1:47.59) while at North Forsyth High School. His breast time broke the state record at the time.

He scored for the Sun Devils at 2018 Pac-12 Men’s Championships in the A final of the 200 breast and the C-final of the 200 IM.

Dalmolin will transfer in with Colin Riley and Grant Norgan.

There is a lot more to college than swimming fast. Georgia is closer to home, has in state tuition, is a better school. He may have not liked his program at asu academically, not gottten along with the team well. It really could be anything, how fast someone swims doesn’t tell you how much they like the school

Agree…often home state schools pass kids over. They go out of state and get faster then have the benefit of transferring w/ in state tuition. If all athletes got in state tuition, transfers would drop drastically. A good example of why the NCAA has NO right to limit who can transfer by grade point. Something currently under consideration and discriminatory to athletes who’s families have have unforeseen issues arise…change if academic interest, financial, ailing family member etc.

The only real transfer penalties now are within conference. So no problem going from ASU to UGA for the athlete in this example.
