NEW COMMIT: Texas A&M University has received their first verbal commitment for the Aggies’ Class of 2026 from Junior National qualifier and in-state standout Connor Foote of San Antonio, Texas.

The Aggies know how to keep local talent in the Lone Star State, as their commits for the fall of 2021 – Noah Beladi, Clayton Conklin, Jacob DeLagerheim, Seth RenoTrey DickeyMunzy Kabbara and Tyler Hulet – all hail from Texas.

Regarding his commitment, he said:

“I am very excited to announce my verbal commitment to further my academic and swimming career at Texas A&M University! Thank you to my family, coaches, and friends who have made it all possible. I cant wait to see what comes in the future as an Aggie. Gig ‘em!👍🏼”

Foote, who does his club swimming with Alamo Area Aquatic Association, earned five best times at the Toyota U.S. Open back in November. In Summer 2019, he recorded four top-6 finishes at the Texas Open before going on to earn two lifetime bests at Austin Sectionals.

His best times include:

  • 50 back – 22.31
  • 100 back – 49.23
  • 100 fly – 49.11
  • 50 free – 20.96
  • 100 free – 44.75
  • 200 free – 1:42.37

Currently a junior at Alamo Heights High School where he also plays water polo, Foote is a four-time individual Texas 5A State Championship finalist. He collected gold in the 100 free and silver in the 100 back as a sophomore while taking 20th and 16th, respectively, in those events during his freshman season.

In 2020, he split a 22.51 as the lead-off on his team’s 4×50 medley relay that went on to win and lower their own Texas 5A class record.

Under head coach Jay Holmes, Texas A&M finished second in the team standings at the 2020 SEC Championships behind Florida.
