NEW COMMIT: The University of Texas has earned a new verbal commitment for their growing class of 2025 from Scottsdale, Arizona’s Morgan Brophy.

She will arrive in Austin at the start of the 2021-22 season along with Ellie Andrews and Olivia McMurray.

Brophy, who owns five Junior National standards, does her club swimming with Scottsdale Aquatic Club and most recently finished 11th in the 100 fly at Juniors West in December. This past summer, she had three top-10 finishes at Des Moines Futures and notched four best times at Carlsbad Sectionals last short course season. A current junior at Chaparral High School, Brophy helped her team win the overall Arizona DI State Championship title while earning gold in the 100 fly and 200 IM. She has also earned USA Swimming Scholastic All-American honors twice in her career.

Regarding her commitment, she said:

“I’m so incredibly thankful for my family, friends, Scottsdale coaches, and everyone who has supported me in my decision to continue my academic and swimming career at the University of Texas at Austin! I’m so grateful for all of the love and support these people have shown me throughout this process and I couldn’t be happier to become a part of the longhorn family! Hook ‘em!”

Her best times include:

  • 100 fly – 53.91
  • 200 fly – 2:01.64
  • 200 IM – 2:01.82
  • 400 IM – 4:23.86
  • 50 free – 23.45
  • 100 free – 50.94

Even with 1.5 years of club swimming still to go before arriving in Austin, Brophy will add valuable fly depth to the Longhorns’ training group. She would’ve scored in the top-6 of both the 100 fly and 200 fly at the 2019 Big Ten Championships and she’ll have two years of overlap with Kelly Pash.

If you have a commitment to share, please send a photo and quote via email to hs@swimmingworld.com.
