On Saturday June 22nd, I had the pleasure to speak with Ohio State University’s Men’s Assistant Coach, Dave Rollins, at the Busbey Invitational in Cleveland, Ohio.
The Buckeye’s will be gaining twelve new male recruits for the 2013-2014 season, from instate, out-of-state, and internationally. With an already outstanding program, these men will prove to be strong additions to their team, both individually and on relays. Coach Rollins is confident that these men will be great contributors to the Big Ten meets, and is excited to see their performances this season.
For full information on the upcoming recruits, you can find it here, on Ohio State’s official sport’s page.
Coach Rollins also discussed his group of men that will be competing at World’s Trials in Indy this week. One top name representing OSU is Tim Phillips. Along with swimming the 100 m freestyle, Phillips will be swimming the 100 m and 50 m butterfly. He is currently seeded 4th in both events, behind names such as Tyler Mcgill, Ryan Lochte, and Tom Shields. Not much separates Phillips from the top three spots (not even a whole second divides them), meaning this is not a race that you’d want to miss. To prepare for this race, Phillips has been training with SwimMAC Carolina.
Also competing at World’s Trials are Phillips’s teammates, Alex Miller, Dmitry Dolgov, Steven Zimmerman, Garrett Trebilcock, DJ MacDonald, Rowan Williams, Dak Stone, and Connor McDonald.
