NEW COMMIT: Olympic Trials qualifier Jake Johnson has verbally committed to swim for Harvard University beginning next fall. Johnson swims for Delaware Swim Team and attends Mount Sophia Academy where he is a team captain. A two time USA Swimming Scholastic All-American and three time NISCA All-American, Johnson is strongest in fly events. Among his best times are:
- 100 fly – 47.77
- 200 fly – 1:46.78
- 200 back – 1:45.38
- 200 IM – 1:49.13
- 400 IM – 3:51.84
At last year’s Ivy League Championships his best times would have put him in the A final for both butterfly events, the 200 back and 400 IM. He’d also be a 200 IM B finalist.
Johnson told Swimming World,
“I’m beyond excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and swimming careers at Harvard! I chose Harvard for the unparalleled academics and exceptional team atmosphere! From the moment I stepped on campus the team treated me as one of the guys. I’m really excited to become part of the Harvard family! I believe Coach Kevin and Coach Sam will continue to lead the team to greatness! I know I couldn’t have made it this far without the continued support of all my family, friends, teachers and coaches. Go Crimson!!! Phil. 4:13.”
