Michigan Adds Winter Juniors Finalist Charles Morici for 2020-21

Fitter and Faster Swim Camps is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment news. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that is pursued with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who supported them on their journey.

Valencia, California’s Charles Morici has announced his commitment to the University of Michigan for the fall of 2020. A senior at West Ranch High School, Morici is a USA Swimming Scholastic All-American from Canyons Aquatic Club.

“I’m excited to announce my commitment to the University of Michigan! GO BLUE!”

Morici is a national-level qualifier in the 100 free, 100 back, 100 fly, and 200 fly. He finaled in the 100 fly (10th), 200 fly (10th) and 100 back (22nd) at 2019 Winter Juniors West in December. He swam at Carlsbad Sectionals at the end of February and earned PBs in the 100 free and 100/200 fly while finishing 3rd in the 200 fly, 4th in the 100 fly, 4th in the 100 back, 11th in the 100 free, and 22nd in the 50 free. Although his senior year high school season was canceled, as a junior he placed 8th in the 100 fly and 17th in the 100 back at the 2019 CIF Southern Section Division I Championships last May.

Morici will suit up for the Wolverines with Alexander Capizzo, Ansel Froass, Bence Szabados, Jake Mitchell, James LeBuke, Juan Ceresa, Wyatt Davis, and Yugo Tsukikawa. Morici’s best times would have qualified him for the B final of the 100 fly and the C final of the 200 fly at 2020 B1G Championships. It took 48.21 in the 100 back, 1:47.04 in the 200 IM, and 20.04/44.22 in the 50/100 free to get a second swim at the conference meet. Morici will join a Michigan fly training group that also includes River Wright, Eric Storms and Alex King.

Top SCY times:

  • 100 fly – 47.07
  • 200 fly – 1:46.32
  • 100 back – 49.21
  • 200 IM – 1:51.16
