Henry will make the move to Tempe from Texas. He swims for Tiger Shark Swim Team and still has to complete his senior year at Belton High School.

He told Swimming World,

“I am excited to have made my verbal commitment to Arizona State University for many reasons. I look forward to the opportunity of training under coach Bob Bowman and his staff with their credible knowledge. I am most impressed with the tremendous support from the university and athletic director and their value for Olympic sports. Academically I plan to take advantage of the innovative and progressive approach and research through the Barrett Honors College and the biodesign laboratory. Most importantly believe in the vision that coach Bowman shared with me for the swimming program and myself.”

Among his best times are:

  • 50 Free 21.16
  • 100 Free 44.87
  • 200 Free 1:37.92
