After attending their swim camps over the last few years, Junior Noah Yarian verbally committed to swim for the Michigan Wolverines last week, joining their class of 2023.

“I actually went to their camps for four years in a row and every year I kept getting better and think they saw that as well” said Noah.

Noah was approached during the summer of 2016 about creating a profile with the Wolverines as they saw more and more of him and his leadership ability in and out of the pool. However it wasn’t until September 2017 when he started speaking with the university officially.

From there Noah has continued to build relationships with the Michigan coaches, easing the recruiting process.

“We have maintained great contact, updating each other on how our seasons were, the next parts of the process, and scheduling more times to come and visit,” he said.

Throughout his recruiting process, Yarian had taken offers from multiple other Division 1 schools, among them was Louisville.

“Although Louisville was still high on my list, I had Michigan as my number one throughout the process,” Noah said.

Other schools that were in on Noah were Tennessee, Florida State, Arizona and Indiana.

The men’s swimming team at Michigan is consistently one of the top programs in the nation and has the second most national championships in the sport (12), with the most recent coming in 2013, making the team Michigan’s most successful varsity sport. The team also placed 8th at this years National Championship meet.

The team also won five straight Big Ten Championships from 2011-2015 and finished second in the Big Ten Championship this year.
