SPA Distance Freestyler Caleb Kravitz Verbally Commits to Florida

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.

Caleb Kravitz, who hails from Saint Petersburg, Florida, has elected to remain in-state and swim for the University of Florida Gators in the 2020-21 season. A senior at Shorecrest Preparatory School, Kravitz is the defending Florida 1A state champion in the 500 free (4:29.27). He also swam the 200 IM and finished 8th (1:57.63) and led off the 13th-place 400 free relay (48.19). In club swimming, where he represents Saint Petersburg Aquatics, Kravitz is a U.S. Open qualifier in the 800/1500m freestyles and a Summer Juniors qualifier in the 400 free. He notched PBs in the 200/400/800m free events (1:57.87/4:01.47/8:16.18) this summer at Southern Zone Sectionals and went a best time in the 1500 (15:49.04) at TYR ISCA Summer Senior Championship. Last spring, he went best times in all those events plus the 400 IM at the Florida Swimming LSC Senior Short Course Championships.

Kravitz will join Brendan Peacock and Jace Crawford in the Gators’ class of 2020.

“I am extremely excited to announce my verbal commitment to the University of Florida. Thank you to all the people who helped me along the way. Go Gators!🐊🐊🐊”

Kravitz’s best mile time would have squeaked in at 24th at 2019 SEC Championships but his 500 free/400 IM times aren’t quite at SEC-scoring level yet (it took 4:21.37 in the 500 and 3:50.06 in the 400 IM to get second swims). Kravitz will nonetheless join one of the premiere distance groups in the country, led by current sophomores Robert Finke, Trey Freeman, and Kieran Smith.

Top SCY times:

  • 200 free – 1:41.59
  • 500 free – 4:28.89
  • 1000 free – 9:16.00
  • 1650 free – 15:26.85
  • 400 IM – 4:00.08
