The Buffalo men have added a trio of members to their recruiting class, as Trey Lowe, Seamus Trzewik-Quinn, and Carson Burt have given their verbal commitments to join the Bulls next season. Burt and Lowe will add freestyle depth, while Trzewik-Quinn will likely swim backstroke and IM.
“I chose Buffalo because of the instant connection with team and coaches. Also the balance of academics and athletics was a perfect fit where I could see myself succeed in and out of the pool for the next 4 years. GO BULLS”
