East Lake's Michelle Turek has committed to swim at Auburn University.

"It's a school I've always wanted to go to," Turek said. "I like the facilities and location. The campus is beautiful, and most of all I like the people."

Turek, ranked 14th in the state among seniors by collegeswimming.com,  is part of the Eagles' heralded 2015 class that includes Sydney Pickrem and Alexandra Aitchison. Turek chose the Tigers over Alabama, Florida State and Vanderbilt.

"Auburn was the only school I visited, but I had such a strong feeling about it that I knew that's where I wanted to go," she said.

At last year's Class 4A state meet, Turek was second in the 100 and 200 free, and swam anchor legs on the winning 200 medley and 400 free relay teams.
