NEW COMMIT: Indiana University has scored an in-state verbal commitment for their growing class of 2025 from Finlay “Finn” Brooks of Fort Wayne, Ind.

He will join Nichita Bortnicov, Aidan Reagan, Rafael MiroslawJackson CarlileLuke BarrSean SwiftJosh MathenyLucas Piunti, and Mason Carlton in Bloomington in the fall of 2021.

He told Swimming World:

“I’m very excited to announce that I will be continuing my swimming and academic careers at Indiana University! I’m extremely thankful to my coaches Sean Gibson and Tyler Lemert at Concordia, and also my coaches Justin Max and Stephanie Jamison at SCA. They have all been great coaches and have helped me get to where I want to be with swimming!”

A talented sprinter, Brooks does his club swimming with Summit City Aquatics under coaches Stephanie Jamison and Justin Max. He owns the U.S. Open cut in the 100 fly and the Junior National cut in the 50 free. His best 100 free time came in a recent unsanctioned intrasquad meet.

His best times include:

  • 50 free – 20.75
  • 100 free – 47.82
  • 50 back – 23.77
  • 100 fly – 49.07

Also competing for Concordia Lutheran High School, Brooks placed fifth in both the 50 free and 100 fly as a junior at the Indiana State Championships where he achieved best times in those events.

When he suits up for the Hoosiers in the fall of 2021, Brooks will add his sprint talents to a training group that’ll include Jack Franzman, Brandon HamblinGavin Wright, and fellow Fort Wayne native Tristan Dewitt. Under head coach Ray Looze, Indiana finished third overall in the team standings at the 2020 Big Ten Championships.
