Owen Taylor of Cincinnati, Ohio has announced his verbal commitment to Louisville University for the fall of 2021. Taylor is a junior at Saint Xavier High School and swims for Powel Crosley Jr. YMCA.

Last spring, at the YMCA Short Course National Championships, Taylor was a finalist in the 50 free (21.12), 100 free (45.43) and 200 free (1:40.92). He qualified for finals in four events last summer at the YMCA Long Course National Championships, with his highest finish being 3rd in the 100 free (52.45). He finished 14th in the 100 free and 12th in the 200 free at the 2019 Winter Juniors-East.

I am extremely proud to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at the University of Louisville! I would like to thank my parents, coaches, trainers, and teammates who have helped me along the way. Go Cards!!!🔴⚫️🔴
