NEW COMMIT: Junior National qualifier Kevin Maas of Holland, Mich. will remain in state for his college career after verbally committing to the University of Michigan beginning in the fall of 2022.

He will join Matthew Kroll, Ozan Kalafat, Lucas Hodgson and Logan Zucker as a member of the Class of 2026.

Maas’s older brother, Derek Maas, will be a junior at Alabama this upcoming season.

Regarding his commitment, he said:

“Michigan offers the perfect combination of elite academic initiatives and a premier athletic program. I am thrilled to continue my educational and swimming careers at such a prominent institution with deeply instilled traditions of excellence in and out of the pool. Can’t wait to be a part of the TEAM, Go Blue!! 〽️〽️”

A talented sprinter, Maas trains year-round with Michigan Lakeshore Aquatics and recorded a best time in the 100m free at Elkhart Sectionals back in March. In July 2019, he earned bronze in the 50m back at the Michigan Open Long Course Championships.

His best times include:

  • 50 free – 20.60
  • 100 free – 46.38
  • 100 back – 51.94
  • 100 breast – 57.52
  • 100 fly – 51.07

A rising senior at West Ottawa High School, Maas is a four-time individual Michigan DI State Championship finalist. He won the 50 free and was the 100 free runner-up as a junior while taking 11th and 16th, respectively, in those events during his freshman season.

Under head coach Mike Bottom, the Wolverines finished fourth at the 2021 Big Ten Championships.
