World Juniors Team Member Luke Ellis Verbally Commits to Indiana for 2025

NEW COMMIT: Indiana University has secured its first public verbal pledge for Fall 2025 from Olympic Trials qualifier Luke Ellis of Las Vegas, Nevada.

He currently owns the fastest mile time in his class, and owns top-5 times in the 400 IM, 500 free and 1000 free.

Regarding his commitment, he said:

“I am thrilled to announcement my verbal commitment to pursue my academic and athletic career at Indiana University. I want to thank my family, friends, Coach Ron, and all the Sandpiper coaches and families for helping me achieve my goals. GO HOOSIER”

It’s no surprise that the top miler in the class trains year-round with Sandpipers of Nevada. Ellis is coming off a fantastic summer where he earned five Olympic Trials cuts. He also placed sixth in both the 800m free and 1500m free at the FINA World Junior Championships. His 800m time was a personal best.

Ellis impressed with a seventh-place showing in the 1500m free and 100% best times at Phillips 66 Nationals. He won the mile at Juniors West back in December

His best times include:

  • 1650 free – 14:49.79
  • 1000 free – 8:57.32
  • 500 free – 4:22.23
  • 400 IM – 3:47.68
  • 200 fly – 1:47.23
  • 200 back – 1:46.17

Ellis’ best mile time would’ve been the fastest on the Hoosiers’ lineup last year by four seconds. Indiana finished fourth at the 2023 NCAA Championships.
