Don’t you UGA should’ve waited until these “massive time drops” actually happened! According to collegeswimming.com this kid sat out his entire sophmore year and hasn’t improved in his best events since 2018!

I’m going to wait for someone to get upset at the comments and defend walk-ons.

But the thing is, I think we all knew/know Georgia high schoolers who were significantly faster than this and weren’t given the chance to walk-on at UGA.

It seems like you either have to be crazy fast or have the connections to swim at UGA now

Is he a walk on? I’ve never heard of a walk-on committing one October of junior year. That’s when the top 20s usually commit.

UGA also got another commit on the girls side who doesn’t seem too fast.

Some of these recruits might not have had a meet since December of 2019 so there could be very big time drops coming

If he goes 1:38 in the 200 free and and 4:25 in the 500 free, I’ll say I was wrong.
