Coleman Kramer of Vero Beach, Florida has announced his verbal commitment to the University of South Carolina Gamecocks for the 2018-2019 season.
“I am proud to announce my commitment to the University of South Carolina! When looking at colleges, I wanted to find a campus that felt like home, a team that felt like family, a high level of academics and athletics, and the chance to swim with some and for some of the best in the world, and I found all of those things in USC. Go Cocks!”
