Villanova University Receives Commitment From Joshua Brown

Fitter and Faster Swim Camps 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.

Joshua Brown, a high school senior from Winter Park, Florida, has committed to swim for Division I Villanova University. Brown will graduate from Lake Highland Prep School in spring 2021 join the Wildcats’ class of 2025.

Brown is a current swimmer for Highlander Aquatics where he is a Futures qualifier. At the 2020 FHSAA 1A State Championships, Brown placed 2nd in the 500 freestyle (4:28.77) and 7th in the 200 freestyle (1:40.76).

I am thrilled to share my verbal commitment to Villanova University. I am grateful to coaches Rick, Conor and Nate for believing in me, and giving me the chance to be part of their swim team next season. I can’t wait to see what I can achieve both academically and in the pool at NOVA. A huge thanks to Coach Todd for pushing me this far, and to my family and teammates for encouraging and supporting me poolside. Go Wildcats!”

Top SCY Times

  • 100 freestyle – 47.47
  • 200 freestyle – 1:40.50
  • 500 freestyle – 4:28.77
  • 1650 freestyle – 15:48.49

At the 2020 Big East Championships with the Wildcats, Brown would have had multiple finals performances with his current best times. He would have placed 4th in the 500 freestyle (4:28.77), 6th in the 200 freestyle (1:40.50) and 7th in the 1650 freestyle (15:48.49).

With these times, Brown would have been the fastest 200 and 500 freestyle swimmer for Villanova at this meet.

At the Big East Championships, the Villanova men placed 4th as a team and received CSCAA Scholar All-America team status.
