Olympic swimming star Missy Franklin has orally committed to attend Cal.

"Committed to swim at Cal Berkeley! I am officially a baby Golden Bear," Franklin tweeted Saturday.

Cal coach Teri McKeever directed the women's team in the London Olympics, where Franklin won the 100- and 200-meter backstroke events, relay golds in the 400 medley and 800 freestyle, and a bronze in the 400 freestyle relay.

Franklin is a senior at Regis Jesuit High-Aurora (Colo.). She had earlier recruiting visits to Georgia and Texas.

She plans to swim collegiately for her first two years and will turn pro in 2015, ahead of the 2016 Rio Olympics, according to Swimming World.

Cal can't comment on the commitment until Franklin signs a letter of intent.
