Saladin follows Brandon Christian, Gabriel Swardson, and Ryan Kelly in committing to the Mountaineers’ class of 2020.

“I chose West Virginia because I felt a personal connection with the university and the team.  It seemed like a perfect fit from the beginning.  During the whole process the coaches were helpful with all my questions. During my visit the team was welcoming and made me feel at home.  I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of West Virginia swimming and the community and I look forward to growing as a swimmer, while obtaining a quality education.  Thanks to all who have supported me. I couldn’t have done it without you.  Go Mountaineers!!!!”
