He wrote about his decision,

“I felt at home there — the guys on the team, the atmosphere, just the whole package. And, I really want to see how far I can go in swimming – junior national team? PanPacs? Trials? For me, coach (Mike) Bottom and the staff are the best in college swimming so who better to help me get to the next level and beyond? And, academically, Michigan is one of the best universities in the country so I’ll be getting a world class education in the classroom and the pool. In the end it was the obvious choice for me and I’m just so honored to be part of the Michigan tradition.”
