NC State Continues 2022 Recruiting Push with IHSAA A-Finalist Kyle Ponsler

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.

Fishers Area Swimming Tigers’ Kyle Ponsler is the latest verbal commit to NC State’s class of 2026. The Wolfpack men are on a recruiting tear in the high school class of 2022; last week, they landed three in one day between #14 Lance Norris, #17 Michael Cotter and Ryan Weaver, all in-state pickups.

I am beyond proud and humbled to announce my verbal commitment to North Carolina State University! I would like to thank my coaches, teammates, friends, and family for the constant guidance and support that they’ve provided throughout my swimming journey. Here’s to the next 4 years. Go Pack!♦️🐺 #PBG
