Jonathan Farah, a senior at American Heritage School in Plantation, Florida, will brave the New England winters to swim for Boston College in the fall.

Farah will join fellow-commit Griffin Taylor in the Boston College class of 2020.
“I committed to Boston College because it was the perfect blend of athletics and academics. I wanted to go to a school that could challenge and better me both academically and athletically, and Boston College was the perfect fit. I really hope that I can get the most out of my four years, and hopefully I can play a big role in taking the swim team to the next level.”
