RICHMOND, Virginia, November 3. SWIMMING World five-star prospect Stuart Ferguson, who swims for Poseidon and under Swimming World Magazine contributor Mike Stott at the Collegiate School, has made his college decision.
Ferguson is heading to the Plains to swim for Richard Quick at Auburn. Ferguson is a top-level breaststroker with U.S. Olympic Trials cuts in the 100-meter breast (1:02.58) and 200-meter breast (2:18.54).
"All the pieces I was looking for in my college experience came together for me at Auburn," Ferguson told Swimming World. "I will have the opportunity to swim for Richard Quick, and his enthusiastic group of young coaches on the closest, most focused team I've encountered. I'll be training with some of the fastest swimmers in the world, participating in the legendary Auburn Dryland Circuit, and studying in the Honors College at Auburn which will be a great academic path for me."
