-- North Oconee High School, November 10th 2021.
ABSC's own Gavin Jones has signed on the dotted line to continue his swimming and academic career for the next four years at Villanova University! In his signing ceremony last week at North Oconee High school for their annual signing day celebration, Gavin was recognized along with 9 other athletes from various sports by his high school coach, Scott Burrell, and signed in front of classmates, teachers, coaches, and friends.
Gavin committed to Villanova a few weeks ago after an official visit, where he fell in love with the campus, the school, and most importantly the coaches and swimmers on the Villanova Swim and Dive Team. At the time his commitment was announced, Gavin gave the following statement about his commitment to Villanova:
"It is with great excitement that I announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic careers at Villanova University!! The amazing coaches, athletes and prestigious academics made this an easy choice. I can’t wait to call Nova Nation home!! Thank you to my parents, teammates and all of my coaches for investing in me and supporting me. Go Wildcats!! #Family"
