I’m super excited to announce my official commitment to Brigham Young University. I want to thank my family, coaches and friends who have supported me through all this process. Can’t wait to join the team and start this new chapter in my life.💙🐾

Are the three Mexicans going to BYU Mormon? Or is there just a solid recruiting pipeline?

BYU has an excellent foreign language program and LOTS of Spanish speakers due to missionary work. I wouldn’t be surprised if they weren’t Mormon and this was just a good recruiting pipeline – but either way it’s cool they’re getting lots of talented swimmers from Mexico!

Also, their assistant coach is from Mexico City which I’m sure is very enticing to Mexican athletes.
