Quinn Schaedler Changes 2020 Commitment from Michigan to Virginia

Fitter and Faster Swim Clinics is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment news. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that is pursued with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who supported them on their journey.

Austin, Texas freestyler Quinn Schaedler has verbally committed to the University of Virginia for 2020-21. She had originally announced her intention to swim for the University of Michigan last April. Schaedler ranked 8th in the high school class of 2020 in our first “Way Too Early” poll but dropped to Honorable Mention in the re-rank that came out in the spring.

I am so excited to announce my verbal commitment to the University of Virginia!! this decision would not have been possible without the support from my family, friends, and coaches. i’m so excited to continue my athletic and academic career here! GO HOOS🧡

Schaedler is a two-time USA Swimming Scholastic All-American. She is currently unattached but has swum for Longhorn Aquatics, Austin Swim Club, Nitro Swimming, and Lake Shore Swim Club over the past 5 years. She specializes in 50/100/200 free. She swam all three events at Phillips 66 Nationals this summer (26.61/56.50/2:03.44) then repeated the 100 free the following week at Speedo Junior Nationals. There, she placed 7th with 56.74. At Winter Juniors West, she finaled in both the 100 (3rd with 49.49) and the 200 (3rd with 1:45.91). She also competed in the 50/500 free.

Best SCY times:

  • 50 free – 22.89
  • 100 free – 48.84
  • 200 free – 1:45.91

Schaedler’s best 50 free time would have been .02 short of earning a second swim at 2019 ACC Women’s Championships but her 200 free would have made the A final and her 100 free would have landed her solidly in the B final. If she gets back to that level she’ll be a huge addition to UVA’s relays. Schaedler will begin in the fall of 2020 with Abby Harter, Alex Walsh, Anna Keating, Emma Weyant, and Sophia Wilson.

If you have a commitment to report, please send an email with a photo (landscape, or horizontal, looks best) and a quote to [email protected].

Until the ink goes on the NLI, they are all fair game. This happens all the time in basketball and football.

Get out of here. Unless you have something to say, quit trying to start something just because your school lost a good recruit. We will start to see this more and more with kids giving their verbals during their jr year based on their soph times. As someone else said, this kind of stuff always happens in football and basketball, and really every other sport too. Expect more of this “commitment” change with the way recruiting rules are set up now.

Exactly — kids making non-binding verbal commitments on age-15 times are going to change their minds at times. Assuming a coach is doing something underhanded is neither logical nor fair.

Funny story: I’m a swimmer who got recruit by both DeSorbo and Bottom in the last 2 years. After I committed elsewhere, Bottom continued to recruit me and try to make me question my commitment, but DeSorbo was nothing but nice about it. Ask around, and you’ll find out that Bottom is know for this.
