#6 Jeremy Kelly (2024) Announces Verbal Commitment to the Texas Longhorns

Fitter and Faster Swim Camps is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all engagement news. For many, college swimming is a lifetime dream pursued with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who have supported them along the way.

Jeremy Kelly from Georgetown, Texas, has announced his intention to swim and graduate at the University of Texas at Austin beginning fall 2024.

“I am very excited and honored to announce my commitment to advancing my academic and athletic career at the University of Texas! I would like to thank my family, friends and my coaches for supporting me along this journey along with Coach Eddie and Wyatt for giving me such an incredible opportunity. Hook them up! 🤘🧡”

As a junior at Georgetown High School, Kelly swam for his school and for Nitro Swimming. He has a versatile lineup that excels in freestyle (sprint to middle distance), backstroke and IM. At the 2022 Texas UIL 5A State Championships, he won the 50 Free (20.02) and 500 Free (4:23.18), scoring PBs in both events. Last year, as a freshman, he won the 200 IM (1:48.32) and finished second in the 100 back (49.52). Here, too, both times were best times. At the College Station Sectionals in March, he added PBs in the 200 Free and 100/200 Breast and placed 9th in the 50 Free, 5th in the 100 Free, 2nd in the 200 Free and the 7th place in the 200 Breast.

Kelly competed in the Phillips 66 International Team Trials in April, where he set a lifetime best in the LCM 50/100/200 Free (23.51/51.72/1:52.82). That summer he competed in the same three events as well as the 200 IM at the Speedo Junior Nationals. He improved his 200 free time (1:52.06) and added a PB in the 200 IM (2:04.62), making him a final in both events (12th and 10th respectively).

The Longhorns also received verbal commitments for the Class of 2028 from #2 Cooper Lucas, #20 Luke Stibrich and “Best of the Rest” Max Hatcher. While Lucas, Stibrich and Hatcher all shine in the 200s and above, Kelly’s sprint rating doubles when you factor in his NCAA relay potential.

  • 50 free – 20.02
  • 100 free – 44.06
  • 200 free – 1:36.10
  • 500 free – 4:23.18
