Oslin made an immediate impact during his freshman season, inking his name in the school record books and earning All-American honors. At his first NCAA Championships he was a member of the 200 and 400 yard medley relays that posted top-8 finishes. He also competed in both individual backstroke events. Throughout the season, Oslin broke the school record in the 100 yard backstroke numerous times as well as the 200 yard backstroke at the SEC Championships.
With a year of college swimming experience under his belt, Oslin won a silver and a bronze medal as a relay member at the NCAA Championships. The silver came in the 200 yard medley relay and the bronze the 400 yard medley where he re-broke his school record during his 100 backstroke lead-off leg. He added more points for Alabama with a 5th place finish in the 100 yard backstroke, 13th in the 200 yard backstroke and 11th in the 400 yard freestyle relay.
Another year brought more improvements for Oslin. He was on the 200 yard medley relay that won the NCAA title, the first ever relay title in school history. He also stepped up on the podium in the 100 yard backstroke taking the silver medal. Other All-American honors came in the 200 yard backstroke with a 5th place finish and another school record, and the 400 yard medley relay with a 9th place finish.
At his final NCAA Championships, Oslin won a silver medal as a member of Alabama’s 200 yard medley relay, swimming the backstroke leg. He also won a bronze medal in the 100 yard backstroke in 44.56, just ahead of his teammate, Luke Kaliszak.
Oslin also earned All-American honors for a fourth place showing in the 200 yard backstroke.
