NEW COMMIT: The University of South Carolina has earned yet another verbal commitment for the 2020-21 season, this time from in-state sprinter Aubrey Chandler of Tega Cay, S.C.

The Gamecocks have been on top of their recruiting game for next fall, snagging three other in-state recruits in Emma SullivanGabi Reed and Riley Parker who will join Chandler next fall, in addition to Olivia McPhersonMegan ArmstrongMeredith Berglundand Kaitlyn Porter.

Chandler does her club swimming with Upper Palmetto YMCA Stingrays and owns the U.S. Open cut in the 50 free with the Summer Juniors standard in the 100 free. She most recently competed at YMCA Nationals where she finished seventh in the 50 free and ninth in the 100 free after winning both of those events at the South Carolina SCY Championships. This past summer, she earned gold in the 50m free at South Carolina LCM Championships before going on to grab bronze in that event at YMCA LCM Nationals.

Also competing for Fort Mill High School, Chandler is a six-time South Carolina 5A State Championship finalist. She won the 50/100 free combo as a junior after finishing first and second, respectively, in those events during her sophomore season.

She told Swimming World:

“Thrilled to announce my verbal commitment to continue my swimming and academic career at the University of South Carolina! The moment I stepped foot on campus I knew I was meant to be a Carolina Gamecock! I can’t thank my family, coaches, and teammates enough for the constant love and support! #gococks #spursup”

Her best times include:

  • 50 free – 23.07
  • 100 free – 50.14
  • 200 free – 1:49.90
  • 100 fly – 57.45

Chandler will make an immediate impact when she arrives in Columbia as a member of the class of 2024 and will add valuable relay depth. Her best times in the 50 free and 100 free would’ve ranked second on their lineup this past season behind Christina Lappin, who will have just graduated when Chandler finally suits up for South Carolina.
