Matt Josa, a finalist in the 100 fly at Olympic Trials last week, will transfer from Queens University of Charlotte to Cal-Berkeley this fall to complete his final two years of NCAA eligibility.
SwimMAC Carolina head coach David Marsh confirmed the news Thursday afternoon. Marsh told Swimming World that Josa's plan all along had been to stay in Charlotte until Olympic Trials before moving to Division 1, and an opportunity to swim for Queens had made that possible.
"I loved my time at Queens—I made some of my best friends, we won tough championships with [Queens head] coach [Jeff] Dugale, but outside of the Olympics, my priority is to race at the Division 1 level with a top team," Josa said via Marsh. "Based on their pattern of success, [Cal head coach] Dave Durden and David Marsh's similar coaching philosophies, and Cal's impressive results in the long course pool, I plan to finish my last two years as a Cal Bear."
