Novi Sturgeons’ Jonathan Lee has announced his verbal commitment to the Michigan State Spartans for their class of 2022. Lee is a Michigan native, and he swims prep for Detroit Catholic Central High School.
At the 2017 Michigan Division I Championships, Lee swam his way to a third place finish in the 100 breaststroke as well as a 13th place finish in the 200 IM. Swimming the breaststroke leg of Catholic Central’s 200 medley relay, Lee split a 26.11 to help them finish 8th overall.
- 100y breast – 56.45
- 200y breast – 2:06.27
- 200y IM – 1:54.87
Michigan State just graduated the best 100 breaststroker the program has ever seen in Alec Kandt, whose 53.26 from the 2016 Winter Nationals marked a school record, being only their third sub-54 performer ever. With his current best, Lee would’ve been #4 on MSU’s top times list in the 100 breast. He’ll have to improve to score at the conference level, though, as it took a 55.06 to make the C final at Big Tens last year in the 100.
Lee joins California freestyler Jacob Sauter in MSU’s incoming freshman class.
