Andy Thomas of Upper Dublin Aquatic Club has verbally committed to the University of Tennessee, where he will join prospective teammates Eien Mcgee, Ethan Sanders, Luke Massey, and Michael Houlie in the class of 2022. He posted his announcement of social media, saying:
“I am super excited and proud to announce that I am committing my next four years to Tennessee! I couldn’t imagine a better place to call home and I can’t wait to finally be apart [sic] of the family! #Govols”
