NEW COMMIT: The University of Tennessee has received a new verbal pledge for their growing class of 2025 from Jordan Crooks of George Town, Cayman Islands.

He will join current Carmel Swim Club teammates Gus Rothrock and Griffin Hadley in Knoxville in the fall of 2021.

He told Swimming World:

“I am excited to announce my verbal commitment to further my academic and swimming career at the University of Tennessee. Go Vols!”

A talented sprinter, Crooks does his club swimming with Camana Bay Aquatic Club and most recently won six events at the Cayman Island National Championships. Swimming in his future home pool, he finaled in two events at the TYR Pro Swim Series in Knoxville back in January.

While representing the Caymanian Swimming Federation, Crooks competed in the 100m free and 200m free at the 18th FINA World Championships where he recorded a best time in both events. In 2019, he won the 200m free and registered five additional top-6 finishes at the CARIFTA Swimming Championships.

  • 100m free – 51.41
  • 200m free – 1:56.33
  • 50m back – 27.81
  • 100m back – 1:00.55
  • 50m fly – 26.99
  • 100m fly – 57.76

In SCY, those times convert to:

  • 50 free – 20.42
  • 100 free – 44.88
  • 200 free – 1:41.78
  • 50 back – 23.69
  • 100 back – 51.77
  • 50 fly – 23.61
  • 100 fly – 50.71

Crooks will add valuable depth to Tennessee’s lineup when he arrives on Rocky Top at the start of the 2021-22 season, and he will find himself in a number of different events given his versatility.  Under head coach Matt Kredich, the Vols finished sixth in the team standings at the 2020 SEC Championships.
