NEW COMMIT: Las Vegas, Nevada native Dylan Gravley has announced his verbal intention to continue his academic and swimming career at Arizona State University as a member of the Sun Devils’ Class of 2025.

He comes from a strong swimming family background with two older brothers who swam in college: William Gravley competed for for Johns Hopkins and U.S. National Teamer Brennan Gravley is a sophomore at Florida.

He told Swimming World:

“I’m going to be a Sun Devil! Thanks to Coach Bowman, Coach Hirka, and all the ASU staff for helping me through this tedious process. Looking forward to getting to work!”

A talented distance swimmer, Gravley does his club swimming with Sandpipers of Nevada and owns three Junior National standards. He earned 100% best times at the KMSC Pro-Am Classic in December where he finished third in the 400 IM, fourth in the 1000 free, and sixth in the mile.

Last summer, he recorded best times in all of his events at Arena Western Zones where he had four top-10 finishes including a third-place showing in the 400m IM.

His best times include:

  • 500 free – 4:36.56
  • 1000 free – 9:24.95
  • 1650 free – 15:52.01
  • 400 IM – 3:59.35

He will join Essias Smith, Leon MarchandChristian OsterndorfJeremy GraunkeEthan Hansen and Emilio “Lio” Perez in Tempe at the start of the 2021-22 season.

Smith will be joining an Arizona State team that is redshirting this season after coming off an unofficial seventh place finish at the 2020 NCAAs before the meet was cancelled to slow down the COVID-19 pandemic.
