Versatile Coco Bratanov (also known as Kaloyan Bratanov) who swims for Katy High School and KATY Aquatics, has verbally committed to Texas A&M University for 2018-19. He is now the 5th member of the future class of 2022 that the Aggies have succeeded in keeping in-state. The other verbal commits include: Clayton Bobo, Ethan Gogulski, Peter Simmons, and Shaine Casas.
Bratanov became the first male swimmer in Katy High School history to medal at the UIL 6A State Meet when he took 3rd in the 100 free last February.
