BOISE, Idaho - Boise State swimming and diving head coach Kristin Hill announced the signing of Cody Evans (Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada/Collège Vincent Massey Collegiate) to a National Letter of Intent Tuesday.

"Cody was very excited about our training program right away, and her and I connected very well on the phone and then even more so in person. She is very persistent and was very thorough in the recruiting process so we are thrilled that she chose to be a Bronco," commented Hill. "Cody will add great depth and strength to our current freestyle strength and she is someone who will compete for relay spots right away. She works hard in training and has certainly been challenged by her club coach, so she will be ready for our program and will have less transition time in adapting to our style of training. Cody is a very strong student and she is also bilingual which speaks well of her preparation for college. She loved Boise like we all do and we are really looking forward to welcoming her to our program."

Evans will join the Boise State squad from the Great White North, joining junior Taylor Padington as the Broncos' Canadian contingent. Swimming with the Manitoba Marlins club, Evans finished third in the 50 and 400 frees at the 2014 Western Canadian Championships. At the 2014 Canadian Age Group Championships she took seventh in the 100 and 200 frees and eighth in the 50 free. Evans also took third in the 50 free at the 2013 Western Canadian Championships. She also continues to hold the provincial 12-and-under record in the 100 free.

At Collège Vincent Massey Collegiate she is in the French immersion program, taking all of her courses in the language.

"I chose Boise State because from the moment I got there I felt like I was at home and that I was already part of the team; everybody was so welcoming," Evans said. "I also really appreciate how the coaches all thinkg of you as people first and not just swimmers and students. One last reason is because of the city of Boise itself; I absolutely loved the nature surrounding the city and the river running right through it."
