Drew Kibler of Carmel Swim Club announced his verbal commitment to the University of Texas via his Instagram earlier today. Kibler, a multiple-time National Age Group (NAG) Record holder, is slated to begin his collegiate career in the fall of 2018.

Last weekend at the 2017 Indiana Boy’s High School State Championships, Kibler helped lead Carmel to victory with two individual state titles and a new National Public High School record in the 200 free.  His time of 1:33.30 flew past Maxime Rooney’s former record of 1:33.70

Kibler currently holds a total of three NAG records – two individual and one relay. He holds short course NAGs for the 15-16 age group in the 200 (1:33.36) and 500 (4:15.36) free, and served as anchor on the Washington Township 13-14 age group 200 free relay (1:39.56) long course NAG.

Kibler will join an immense stream of talent at Texas, training with freestylers Townley Haas, Tate Jackson, and Jeff Newkirk. His 500 free NAG of 4:15.36 would have placed him third at the 2017 Big 12 Swimming & Diving Championships and within the top 20 for the 2016-17 NCAA DI season. His career will begin after the graduation of Jonathan Roberts, who has been a 500 free staple for the Longhorns, Joseph Schooling, and Brett Ringgold, which sets him up as a strong asset for relay spots.
