NEW COMMIT: Fitchburg, Wisc. native Truman teDuits has declared his in-state verbal commitment to the University of Wisconsin as a member of the class of 2024.

No stranger to Wisconsin’s program, teDuits swims year-round with Badger Aquatic Club and owns the Winter Juniors standard in the 200 IM. He most recently competed at NCSAs where he recorded a trio of lifetime bests and placed 24th in the 50 breast. He won the 200 breast and was the runner-up in both the 100 IM and 400 IM at the Wisconsin SCY Championships and earned three golds at the Wisconsin LCM Championships this past summer.

Also competing for Madison Edgewood High School, teDuits is a six-time Wisconsin DII State Championship finalist. He won the 100 breast and 200 IM as a junior after earning gold in the 100 free and silver in the 200 IM during his sophomore season. During his freshman campaign, he took third in the 100 breast and fourth in the 200 IM.

He told Swimming World:

“I chose wisconsin because of the amazing team environment and amazing coaching staff that I believe can turn Wisconsin into one of the top swimming programs in the nation. I’m very excited to be a badger and can’t wait for the Nick (the new UW pool) to be finished which will help give the team great opportunities for training! RollBadge!”

His best times include:

  • 200 IM – 1:51.49
  • 400 IM – 4:01.63
  • 100 fly – 50.33
  • 100 breast – 56.12

When he suits up for the Badgers at the start of the 2020-21 season, teDuits will join a training group that’ll include Caleb AmanGraham MiotkeJian Mao and Eli Fouts. teDuits has made significant improvements over the past two seasons, dropping three seconds in the 100 breast, 10 in the 200 breast, 12 in the 200 IM and 30 in the 400 IM.
