NEW COMMIT: Freestyler Grant Davis of Woodstock, Ga. has announced his verbal commitment to Auburn University and will join Nate Stoffle in the fall of 2021.

Davis does his club swimming with Chattahoochee Gold Swim Club and owns four U.S. Open standards. He placed 22nd in the 1500m free at Junior Nationals this past summer after earning gold in the 800m free, silver in the 1500m free, and bronze in the 400m free at Greensboro Futures. Last winter, he earned 100% best time at Georgia Seniors before going on to record three top-25 finishes at NCSAs.

Also competing for Sequoyah High School, Davis is already a three-time Georgia 6-7A State Championship finalist. The USA Swimming Scholastic All-American placed fourth in the 500 free and fifth in the 200 free as a sophomore while placing 10th in the latter during his freshman season.

He told Swimming World:

“I’m very proud to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at Auburn University! I’d like to thank my family, friends, and coaches for all of their support throughout my journey. I am excited to see what the future holds! WAR EAGLE!! #WDE”

When he suits up for the Tigers as a member of the class of 2025, Davis will add his talents to a young freestyle training group that includes Davis Edwards, Christian Sztolcman, and Aryan Makhija. He has seen some pretty impressive time drops over the past two years, shaving off 10 seconds in the 500 free, 40 seconds in the mile, and over a minute in the 1000 free.
