NEW COMMIT: Junior National qualifier Auben Nugent of Rochester Hills, Mich. will head to the Sunshine State next year after verbally committing to Florida State University for the 2021-22 season.

He will join Kevin Glenn, Arijus Pavlidi and Rian Covington in Tallahassee as a member of the Seminoles’ class of 2025.

He told Swimming World:

“I am incredibly excited and grateful to announce my verbal commitment to further my academic and swimming careers at Florida State University. The outstanding balance of world class swimming and amazing academics that FSU has to offer is exactly what I was looking for as a student athlete. Finally, thanks to my parents, coaches, friends, and teammates for helping me get to where I am today. Go Noles!”

A versatile swimmer, Nugent trains year-round with OLY Swimming and owns the Junior National cut in the 200 fly with several Futures qualifying standards. He had four top-10 finishes at the Michigan Open in December and finaled in the 200 fly at NCSAs in 2019.

Last summer, he earned seven best times at NCSAs where he finished 22nd in the 200m back and 28th in the 200m IM.

His best times include:

  • 50 fly – 23.36
