His college decision has already been made.

“Boomer’s going to Michigan,” Phelps said in a recent Facebook Live Q&A hosted by Sports Illustrated. “Go Blue.”

Boomer, sitting in Phelps’ lap at the time, did not object. He is 16 weeks old.

Phelps took classes and trained at U-M ahead of the 2008 Summer Olympics. His longtime coach, Bob Bowman, was also coaching the Michigan swim team at the time, so Phelps followed him to Ann Arbor.

He studied sports marketing and management but never pursued a formal degree. He also served as a volunteer assistant coach, barred from competing because he’d turned professional in 2001.

As for Boomer, the pool is already a familiar place.

“He went under for the first time like a week ago,” Phelps said. “He wasn’t very happy with us. I had mom [Phelps’ fiance Nicole Johnson] do it because I didn’t want to get blamed for that. I didn’t want him to remember me for dunking him under.

“He loves the water. He really does.”
