Wisconsin’s Jon Marsh Gives Verbal Commitment to ASU Sun Devils

Jon Marsh, a senior at Madison Memorial High School, has made a verbal commitment to join the Arizona State University men’s swimming and diving team’s class of 2019.

Marsh trains under Drew Walden Badger Aquatics Club in Madison, Wisconsin. He is a national-level free/fly specialist and finaled in the 50m free (third), 100m free (fifth) and 100m fly (second) at 2014 NCSA Summer Swimming Championships. His top times over the last two seasons are:

100y fly: 49.91 100m fly: 55.48
200y fly: 1:51.16 200m fly: 2:10.02
50y free: 21.67 50m free: 23.70
100y free: 45.88 100m free: 52.17
200y free: 1:39.47 200m free: 1:55.53

What’s interesting about Marsh is that he took some time off after his previous team went under and his coach moved away. He came back with renewed focus and had a very successful long course season this past summer. If his recent progress is any indication of his future potential in the Sun Devils uniform, Marsh should be a huge asset to Arizona State in Pac-12 competition, both in individual events and on relays.

I remember seeing him go 2:04.1 200m fly when he was 14. A 1:49 200y fly the next season. A 1:53 200m free the next season. That was 2 years ago.
