NEW COMMIT: According to a report from the IndyStar Jack Franzman has de-committed from NC State and given his verbal commitment to in-state power house Indiana University.

Franzman trains with Zionsville Swim Club and is one of the top sprinters in the high school class of 2018. His best times are:

  • 50 Free 19.81
  • 100 Free 43.44
  • 200 Free 1:41.73
  • 100 Fly 49.19

Franzman has been among the stars at the always competitive Indiana High School state championships. At last year’s state meet he started the prelims session off with a bang, anchoring Zionsville’s 200 medley relay in 19.97, only to go faster (19.85) in the individual 50 free. He posted a 43.44 to clear Blake Pieroni‘s 100 freestyle state record, but finish second, in prelims.

Franzman wasn’t as fast in finals, posting a 20.00 in the 50 free (still good for gold) and going a 44.13 to finish second in the 100 free. His team opened the meet in impressive fashion, though, clocking a National High School record 1:24.99 200 medley relay, including a 19.79 anchor from Franzman.

NC State lost sprint coach Todd Desorbo to the University of Virginia at the end of the summer. At Indiana Franzman will join a sprint group coached by Coley Stickels. Franzman would have been a 50 freestyle B finalist at the 2017 Big Ten Championships. He would have been in the 100 free C final, picking up a few more points for the Hoosiers.
