NEW COMMIT: The University of Texas has added a new verbal commitment for the 2023-24 season and beyond from in-state standout and U.S. Open qualifier Logan Walker of Austin, Texas.

He will join Will Modglin and Will Scholtz in Austin as a member of the Longhorns’ Class of 2027.

He told Swimming World:

“I am excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my swimming and academic career at The University of Texas at Austin. I want to thank my family, my Nitro coaches, and my teammates for helping me achieve one of my life dreams. I also would like to thank Eddie Reese and Wyatt Collins for the opportunity to swim at Texas and for welcoming me into the Longhorn family. I am thrilled to be joining them. Hook’em!”
