NEW COMMIT: Pleasant Grove, Utah native Jordan Tiffany has announced his verbal commitment to the University of Tennessee beginning in the fall of 2020.

The Vols have been on top of their early recruiting game: in addition to Tiffany, Tennessee has already snagged verbal commitments from Will JacksonJack GillespieJoseph JordanAlexander MilanovichJacob McDonaldCole Whitsett and Harrison Lierz.

Tiffany currently does his club swimming with Scottsdale Aquatic Club after previously competing for Hilltop Aquatic Swim Team. He most recently competed at Four Corners Speedo Sectionals where he won the 200 fly with four additional top-5 finishes. He recorded five lifetime bests at Juniors West in December where his highest finish was a fifth-place showing in the 400 IM.

Also representing Lone Peak High School, Tiffany is a four-time Utah 6A State Championship gold-medal winner. He won the 100 fly and 200 IM during both his sohpomore and junior seasons after placing third and fifth, respectively, in those events during his rookie campaign. The USA Swimming Scholastic All-American is the current Utah state record holder in both the 100 fly and 200 IM.

He told Swimming World:

“I am so excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim at the University of Tennessee. A huge thank you to my family, teammates, and coaches for supporting me every step of the way. GO VOLS!!!!! #rockytop”

His best times include:

  • 100 back – 48.84
  • 200 back – 1:46.62
  • 100 fly – 47.74
  • 200 fly – 1:44.22
  • 200 breast – 2:03.98
  • 200 IM – 1:48.00
  • 400 IM – 3:50.62

Tiffany’s versatility will be extremely useful to the Vols when he arrives in Knoxville at the start of the 2020-21 season. Even with 1.5 years of club swimming still to go, he would’ve placed in the B-final of the 200 fly at the 2019 SEC Championships and is just outside of scoring range in a number of different events.
