Versatile Sprinter Pete Krusinski Verbally Commits to Ohio State (2020)

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.

Ohio State has added another name to an already-big men’s recruiting class of 2020 with a verbal commitment last week by Pete Krusinski from the Cleveland Swim Institute. Krusinski is primarily a sprint breaststroker and sprint freestyler.

Krusinski has a lot of sprint tools across different strokes, including freestyle, breaststroke, and butterfly. While his best finish at the 2019 Ohio High School State Division I Championships came in the 100 yard breaststroke (7th – 56.41), he has show just as much potential in other sprints, including a 44.81 anchor on a 400 free relay.

Krusinski does his high school swimming for Broadview Heights High School in Brecksville, Ohio.

Best Times in Yards:

  • 50 free – 20.74
  • 100 free – 46.08
  • 200 free – 1:42.99
  • 100 breast – 55.62
  • 200 breast – 2:05.04
  • 100 fly – 49.65
  • 200 IM – 1:56.65

While he showed some improvements in his 200 breaststroke as a junior (a 2.4 second drop), his times indicate that a good path for him might be to take a page from the playbook of the school’s arch rivals Michigan and develop him into a role like the Ortiz brothers where he can utilize his pure speed across all 4 strokes rather than trying to stretch his endurance to 200 yard races. That being said, he is the only breaststroker in the class of 2020 for Ohio State.

The Rest of the Ohio State class of 2020, so far:

NCAA D1 B1G Ohio State M Charlie Clark OH Perkins High School
NCAA D1 B1G Ohio State M Ian Van Gorp OH St. Xavier High School (Cincinnati)
NCAA D1 B1G Ohio State M Jean-Pierre Khouzam OH St. Xavier High School (Cincinnati)
NCAA D1 B1G Ohio State M Justin Fleagle OH Celina High School
NCAA D1 B1G Ohio State M Mario McDonald MI Detroit Catholic Central High School
NCAA D1 B1G Ohio State M Owen Conley OH Waynesville High School

Great add for the 2020 Buckeyes! So far one of the better all around classes that OSU has gotten.
