NEW COMMIT: The University of Louisville has picked up a new verbal commitment for the fall of 2020 from sprinter Jeffrey Tuning of Cary, N.C.

Tuning, who owns a trio of Winter Juniors standards, does his club swimming with New Wave Swim Team under head coach John Roy. He capped off a successful long course season with four best times at the TYR Summer Senior Championships where he was the 50m free runner-up and earned bronze in the 50m fly. Last winter, he raced three events at Juniors East before going on to register three finals appearances at NCSAs in March.

Only in his fourth year of year-round competitive swimming, Tuning has seen major improvements. Over the past two seasons, he has dropped two seconds in the 50 free, three seconds in the 100 free, and five seconds in the 100 fly. The USA Swimming Scholastic All-American will surely look to carry his recent long course momentum heading into the upcoming short course season.

He told Swimming World:

“I’m so proud to announce my verbal commitment to swim for the University of Louisville.  I can’t wait to officially be a Cardinal! Go Cards!!!”

His best times include:

  • 50 free – 20.69
  • 100 free – 46.32
  • 100 fly – 50.04
  • 50m free – 23.40 (LCM)
  • 100m free – 52.73 has (LCM)
  • 100m fly – 56.67 (LCM)

When he arrives in The Ville as a member of the class of 2024, Tuning will add even more depth to a talented sprint group that’ll include Mihalis Deliyiannis, Caleb Duncan, and Bartosz Piszczorowicz. He will also join Dalton Lowe and Aidan Kreiley in Louisville next fall.

The Cardinals are fresh off a historic season where they were the team runners-up at the ACC Championships. Louisville finished a program-high fifth place at the NCAA Championships, surpassing their previous top finish of ninth in both 2012 and 2018. Their 212 points was also the most they’ve ever scored at NCAAs.
