Jennifer King, who swims with East Kilbride Swimming Club in Glasgow, Scotland, has made a verbal commitment to the University of Missouri for the 2016-17 season.

King is coming off a strong summer season where she competed at the Scottish National Championships last June in the Commonwealth pool in Tollcross International Swimming Centre. King established seven personal bests at the meet and placed seventh in both the 200m backstroke and 400m IM.

King’s best times from 2015 are:
