BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) -- Olympic swimming star Missy Franklin has verbally committed to attend the University of California.

"Committed to swim at Cal Berkeley! I am officially a baby Golden Bear?????? I am so honored to be a part of such a special team! (hash)GoBears," 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 in Aurora, Colo.

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