Canton City Schools backstroker Aiden Neuman has verbally committed to Penn State University for fall 2021. Neuman is a rising senior at Jackson High School in Ohio.

I am very excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at Penn State University! I want to thank all my coaches, family , and friends for the endless support throughout the years. Go Nittany Lions! #WeAre

Neuman is primarily a backstroker, though he has a strong 200 IM, too.

At the 2020 Ohio HS Division I Champs, Neuman scored in the B-final of the 100 back, going 50.60 for 13th at the meet. Neuman also competed at both the 2019 Speedo Junior Nationals last summer and the 2019 Speedo Winter Junior Championships – East, placing 57th at the latter meet in the 100 back (50.40).

Last year, Penn State was led in the backstrokes by 200 back Big Ten runner-up Michael Daly (1:40.63) and Big Ten B-finalist Liam Veregin (47.21). Veregin just graduated, but Daly has two seasons left in State College.

Neuman joins Jack Deppen, Sam Folger and Duncan Troup in Penn State’s class of 2025.
