I’m not from the Cincy area, where did all the Sycamore swimmers come from last season?
Carson, Jake, and Ansel all transferred out of X to Sycamore. Jake at the beginning of the year, Ansel after first semester. Lots of rumors about why Jake & Ansel left, none related to the swim program and most related to the academic/administration side. Not grades, neither failing out or anything like. I was told Jake was top 3 in his class after junior year.
I've been told Carson left because X wouldn't let him miss 6+ weeks of school for national/international meets. X has highly restrictive attendance policies and does not bend. They also do not allow early graduation, which is why Paris Johnson (OSU commit & top-rated O-Line prospect) left X for Princeton his senior year.
