Nick Carlson, originally from Austin, Texas, will be the third former Hoosier on the Arizona State University men’s swimming and diving team roster next fall. He follows Jack Kucharczyk and Jackson Etter who also announced their decision to move from Bloomington to Tempe.
“I chose ASU because I truly believe that the coaching staff and my future teammates will help get me to the places I want to go. ASU really feels like home to me and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the future!”
Carlson has completed two years at Indiana University and will enter ASU as a junior. As a freshman, he clocked PBs in the 50 free (21.12), 100 free (44.72), 200 free (1:37.53) and 500 free (4:27.70) at the First Chance Meet just before the 2016 B1G Championships. The following season he improved his 200 free time at the Purdue Invite and finished the year earning Academic All-Big Ten honors.
This spring, Carlson dropped time in the 200 free and 500 free and kicked off the 2018 long course season with new PBs in the 100/200/400 free.
