Grant Shoults, one of the nation’s top ranked recruits in the class of 2016, has announced is verbal commitment to swim at Stanford University.

Shoults swims with the Mission Viejo Nadadores and Santa Margarita Catholic High School in Rancho Santa Margarita, California. He brings an impressive résumé with him:

Event          SCY            LCM
200 FR        1:34.54    1:50.10*
400/500 FR 4:15.56    3:52.78*
1650 FR      15:14.40  16:14.38
100 FLY       49.26       54.69*
200 FLY       1:45.32    1:59.15*
200 IM        1:48.28    2:03.83*
400 IM        3:59.51    4:30.02

Shoults will immediately be a force for the Cardinal, who no longer have NCAA champion and American record-holder David Nolan. Shoults’s swimming arsenal should provide Stanford with a huge boost in the mid-distance free, fly, and IM races.

Shoults recently broke the national independent high school record in the 200 freestyle, and ended the 2014-2015 season as the fastest high schooler in the 200 and 500 freestyles.

Stanford finished sixth at last year’s NCAA Championship.
