John Vann of Battle Creek, Michigan, has made a verbal commitment to join the Florida State Seminoles in 2015-16.
Vann swims at Lakeview Aquatic Club and attends Lakeview High School in Battle Creek. He is a 12-time MHSAA Division II Boys Swimming & Diving Championship finalist, and he has won the 100 fly the last two years running. His best times over the last two seasons include:
|100y fly: 49.23||100m fly: 56.80|
|200y fly: 1:51.21||200m fly: 2:11.80|
|50y free: 21.19||50m free: 24.52|
|100y free: 46.32||100m free: 53.35|
|200y free: 1:39.68||200m free: 1:57.19|
|200y IM: 1:57.85||200m IM: 2:12.65|
The Seminoles had a pretty successful butterfly outing at the 2014 ACC Championships, including a conference record in the 100 fly from then-senior Pavel Sankovich. Connor Knight made the A-final in both the 100 and 200 events, but he, along with Cadell Lyons who also scored in both distances, are seniors this year and need to be replaced.
