NEW COMMIT: The Stanford women have dominated recruiting the last few years and have put together some unbelievable classes with lots of members of the junior team joining them in Palo Alto. On Wednesday, the Stanford men got a potential game changing commit from World Juniors gold medalist Daniel Roy from King Aquatic Club in Seattle.

Roy is a breaststroker from Washington, with best times of 54.10 and 1:54.47 from Speedo Sectionals in March. Roy also had a really good summer posting times of 1:01.42 at Speedo Juniors in August and 2:10.77 at World Juniors at the end of August. Roy won the gold medal in the 200 breast at World Juniors ahead of Cal commit Reece Whitley.

Roy and Whitley were teammates in Indianapolis and will now be crosstown rivals as both will start their freshman seasons in the fall of 2018 in the Bay Area.

Roy is joining an improving Stanford team that put two guys on the recent World Championship team for Budapest. When Roy is a freshman, Abrahm DeVine will be in his senior season and distance swimmers True Sweetser and Grant Shoults will be juniors. Roy’s commitment could potentially drive Stanford back to the top four for the first time since 2012 when they finished third. In 2017, Stanford finished fifth at the men’s meet.

Roy is joining a class at Stanford that includes Mason GonzalezJack LeVant and David Madej
