Jordan Edwards from Cumming, Georgia has announced her verbal commitment to Texas Christian University’s class of 2025 and will head to Fort Worth in the fall of 2021. She wrote on social media:
“I am super excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at Texas Christian University!!! I am so thankful for all of my teammates and coaches who helped me through the process and I know that this was the right decision for me. Thank you to the TCU coaches and team for helping me feel at home and so welcome💜💜. TCU is an amazing school and I can’t wait to make memories there! I am so excited for this opportunity and #GoFrogs !!!💜😈🐸”
Last February, as a junior at South Forsyth High School, she placed 6th in the 7A 100 fly (57.28) and 10th in the 7A 100 breast (1:07.18) at the 2020 Georgia GHSA 6A-7A State Championships. She also swam breast (30.83) on the 11th-place 200 medley relay and anchored the 14th-place 400 free relay (53.34).

She earned a trio of best times (100/200 free and 200 fly) at the Georgia Short Course Senior State Championships last December. Prior to that, in March 2019, she notched PBs in the 200 breast and 200/400 IM at NCSA Spring Championship, finaling in the 400 IM.
