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.
Jackson Carlile, a high school junior that swims year-round for the Fishers Area Swimming Tigers in Fishers, Indiana, will elect to stay in-state with his verbal commitment to swim for Indiana University beginning in the fall of 2021. A distance freestyle specialist, Carlile made the US Junior National Team in the 10k open water race after finishing in 6th place at the 2019 USA Swimming 10k Open Water Championships.

I am excited and humbled to announce that I will be continuing my swimming and academic careers at Indiana University in the fall of 2021! The opportunity to train with and compete for one of the top swim programs in the nation is a dream come true. A special thanks to everyone who believed in me and supported me in getting to this day. The future looks bright… can’t wait to see it unfold.GO HOOSIERS!⚪️🔴
At Speedo Junior Nationals over the summer, Carlile took 13th place in the 400 LCM freestyle (3:59.18), 12th place in the 800 LCM freestyle (8:16.03), and 17th place in the 1500 LCM freestyle (15:50.66). At the Indiana Age Group Short Course Championships in March, he pulled off the “distance sweep”, winning the 200/500/1000/1650 yard freestyles (1:44.94, 4:39.92, 9:34.03, 15:56.82 respectively).
Top Times in Yards:
- 100 free – 47.73
- 200 free – 1:42.77
- 500 free – 4:35.84
- 1650 free – 15:40.03

When Carlile arrives in Bloomington in the fall of 2021, distance aces Mikey Calvillo and Michael Brinegar will have one and two years of eligibility remaining, respectively, with Brinegar taking an Olympic redshirt this year. He is the first distance swimmer to commit to Indiana’s class of 2025 that includes Sean Swift, Nichita Bortnicov, Lucas Piunti, Henry Bethel, #10 Luke Barr, and #4 Joshua Matheny.
