Alpharetta, Georgia’s Noland Deas has announced his verbal commitment to the University of Alabama for 2018-19. He will join Spencer Walker, another commit to the Tide’s class of 2022.
“I am so incredibly proud to announce my commitment to The University of Alabama! The coaching staff, team, and university as a whole are really something special. I want to thank my coaches at Swim Atlanta, my family, and my teammates for helping me get to this point. Can’t wait to join and work with this awesome swim program! Roll Tide!!”

This summer, he renewed his LCM times in the 50/100/200/400 free and 100 fly at Georgia Swimming Senior State Championships.
