It’s been a huge week for USC in recruiting, and the haul continues with Cincinnati Marlins freestyler Allie Wooden.
Wooden is unique in her ranginess – she’s got excellent freestyling ability at basically any distance. She’s 23.08 in the 50 but also 16:46.83 in the 1650, making her a very intriguing prospect for USC coach Dave Salo, who’s helped men’s senior Cristian Quintero develop his nationally-renowned freestyling range.
“I picked USC because of the stellar academic opportunities and the world class swim coaches on the USC staff,” Wooden said. “I can’t wait to be a Trojan next year!”
Wooden’s Top Times
- 50 free: 23.08
- 100 free: 50.52

- 500 free: 4:53.63
- 1650 free: 16:46.83
Wooden swims for the Cincinnati Marlins as well as the Cincinnati Country Day School.
She joins Elizabeth Stinson and Kirsten Vose, who also committed to USC this week. It’s a trend we’ve seen quite a bit this fall where schools get swimmers in bunches as they start to fill various needs on their rosters.
