NEW COMMIT: Springfield, Penn. native and high school junior Cole Whitsett has announced his verbal commitment to the University of Tennessee and will join the Vols as a member of the class of 2024.

Whitsett swims year-round with the Suburban Seahawks and owns the Winter Nationals cut in the 100 fly and the Winter Juniors cut in the 100 breast. He most recently competed at NCAP’s Tom Dolan Invitational last month where he earned four top-10 finishes. Whitsett placed 17th in the 100m fly at NCSAs this past summer after finishing seventh in the 50m free at Mid-Atlantic LCM Seniors. A current junior at Episcopal Academy, he placed fourth in the 100 fly and eighth in the 100 free at the Eastern Interscholastic Championships during his sophomore season.

He told Swimming World:

“What made me choose Tennessee was the knowledgeable coaching staff, excellent academics along with an amazing campus, and a team of devoted athletes looking to better one another. Thank you to my parents, coaches, and teammates who helped me reach this point in my career! Go vols!”

His best times include:

  • 100 breast – 57.15
  • 100 fly – 49.81
  • 50 free – 21.18
  • 100 free – 45.97

Although he’s currently just outside of scoring range at the SEC Championships, Whitsett still has 1.5 years of club swimming still to go before arriving in Knoxville. He has made significant improvements over the past three seasons, shaving off five seconds from his 100 free, six seconds from his 100 breast and four seconds from his 100 fly.
