To avoid clogging up the home page on what should be a crazy day, please visit the College Recruiting home page to make sure that you see all of the pictures and announcements coming in on National Signing Day.

Two of the best class of 2014’ers in what they do have signed their National Letters of Intent today.

Above (and in headline), future Cardinal Heidi Poppe signed her letter with Stanford, saying that she’s officially part of #NerdNation. Poppe was one of the top two breaststrokers in the class of 2014, with yards bests of 1:00.38 and 2:14.14 in the 100 and 200 yard races.

Below, Cal-bound Cierra Runge was excited to finally officially be headed to what she calls “the greatest place on earth.”

Runge was on the World Junior Championship team this past year, and is a 23.1/49.2/1:45.6 freestyler, a 55.3 100 yard flyer, and a 1:59.9 200 yard IM’er.
