NEW COMMITS: The University of Cincinnati has received a pair of verbal commitments for the fall of 2020 from Jewel Gordon and Brina Uhlin.

Gordon, a breaststroker, and Uhlin, a butterflyer, will both add valuable depth to the Bearcats’ training groups and will make an impact at the American Athletic Conference Championships. They will join Kennedy Grotjohn and Liz Jantausch as members of the class of 2024.

A native of Signal Mountain, Tenn., Gordon owns the Winter Juniors standard in the 100 breast and swims year-round with Baylor Swim Club. She most recently recorded a best time at Greensboro Futures after placing sixth in the 50m breast at the Southeastern LCM Championships. She notched lifetime bests in the 100 breast and 100 fly at Juniors East last winter before going on to final in the 50 breast at NCSAs in the spring.

Also competing for Baylor School, Gordon is a six-time TISCA State Championship finalist. She took third in the 50 free and sixth in the 100 breast as a junior while helping her team earn medley relay gold and secure the team title. Gordon also raced to fifth in the 50 free and 10th in the 100 free during her sophomore season after placing ninth in both events during her rookie campaign.

She told Swimming World:

“Super excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim at the University of Cincinnati!!! So many thanks to my family, friends, and coaches for all their support these past 10 years. Excited for the next 4!! Go Bearcats!!!”

Her best times include:

  • 50 breast – 29.20
  • 100 breast – 1:03.13
  • 200 breast – 2:21.68
  • 100 fly – 56.29
  • 400 IM – 4:29.41

Hailing from Lititz, Penn., Uhlin is primarily a butterflyer and does her club swimming with York YMCA. She recently finished 15th in the 200m fly at YMCA LCM Nationals this past summer after securing silver in that event at NBAC’s Mid-Summer Classic. At YMCA SCY Nationals in April, she registered four personal best times and her highest finish was a 13th-place showing in the 200 fly. A current senior at Warwick High School, Uhlin has earned USA Swimming Scholastic All-American honors for her efforts.

She told Swimming World:

“I chose Cincinnati because the team is so welcoming and it’s a place I believe I can continue to grow not just athletically but also academically. Everything that Cincinnati has to offer to their athletes and students made it impossible not to chose them.”

Her best times include:

  • 100 fly – 55.76
  • 200 fly – 2:03.32
  • 200 IM – 2:09.70
  • 400 IM – 4:30.76
