Zionsville Breaststroker Brock Brown Verbally Commits to Hoosiers

Brock Brown, a senior at Zionsville Community High School in Zionsville, Indiana, has given a verbal commitment to Indiana University for the fall of 2017. Brown represented Zionsville Community at the 2016 Indiana Boys State Championships last February, where he earned personal-best times in the 50 free and 100 breast while finishing 13th and 7th in those events, respectively.

Brown swims year-round for Zionsville Swim Club. He had a successful long course campaign this year, lowering his best times in 9 events. Beginning with the Indiana Senior Short Course Championships in March, with heats in SCY and finals in LCM, Brown rewrote five short-course personal bests (100/200y free, 200y breast, and 200/400y IM) and three long-course (200m free, 200m breast, and 200m IM). He ended the summer with the NCSA Summer Swimming Championships, in which he took third place in the 50m breast, and finaled in the 50m free (32nd) and 100 breast (15th).

His best times are:

50 breast 27.17 29.60
100 breast 56.59 1:07.74
200 breast 2:07.38 2:31.63
50 free 21.74 24.78
100 free 48.15 55.22

Brown adds his name to a strong Indiana University class of 2021 that also includes: Bruno Blaskovic, Jared Fitzgerald, Matthew Jerden, and Mohamed Samy.

Will never do anything at Indiana

Fan of all swimmers

This comment was unnecessary


Ya know, SwimSwam peanut gallery said the same thing when Lilly King signed. Stay tuned.


Yeah Purdue hasn’t had an MC to a top a finisher since Pogoli,

Indiana Swimming Fan

Clearly bitter that Purdue has been on the wrong side of the IN recruiting spectrum over the past few years. IU has a monopoly on all the swimmers with a future!


Congratulations Brock!


So happy to see that IU gets a swimmer with potential! IU tends to develop swimmers really well and with the potential here, this is a good pickup for IU

Jack Franzman

I agree! So much potential. Obviously he has a lot more to prove after dropping so much time at senior state. Can’t wait to see what he accomplishes at IU.
