Michigan HS Division 1 State Champion Kevin Maas Verbals to In-state Wolverines

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.

Kevin Maas has announced his verbal commitment to the University of Michigan. He will make the trek 150 miles southeast from Holland to Ann Arbor in the fall of 2022.

“Excited to announce my commitment to swim for The University of Michigan! Go Blue!〽️”

Maas is a rising senior at West Ottawa High School in Holland. He swims year-round with Michigan Lakeshore Aquatics and specializes mainly in sprint free and breast. At the Michigan High School Division 1 State Championships in March, he won the 50 free (20.60) and was runner-up in the 100 free (46.51); both times were lifetime bests. In the fall of his junior year of high school, he notched PBs in the 100 breast and 100 fly at Octobronoa and, a month later, in the 100 back at Mitten Swim Series Meet 1.

Maas is a Winter Juniors qualifier in the 50 free and a Futures qualifier in the 100 back, breast, and fly. His best SCY times include:

  • 50 free – 20.60
  • 100 free – 46.38
  • 100 back – 51.94
  • 100 breast – 57.52
  • 100 fly – 51.07

Michigan had ten sub-21 sprinters on the roster last season, six of whom went under 20 seconds. Maas is expected to overlap with Cam Peel (19.30), River Wright (19.31), James LeBuke (19.70), Nadav Aaronson (19.81), Bence Szabados (20.51), and Andrew Trepanier (20.54).

Maas will suit up for the Wolverines with fellow class of 2026 verbal commits Logan Zucker, Lucas Hodgson, Matthew Kroll, and Ozan Kalafat.

Kevin Maas achieved SwimSwam notoriety in March 2020, at the start of the pandemic, when he and his brother, Alabama sophomore Derek Maas, took part in a highly competitive race in a backyard pool.
