With just 13 days go until the early signing period opens on November 12th, our readers have decided that the Stanford women’s recruiting class of 2015 is the best so far.
Of course, this is a fluid vote, as classes change every day, but it’s hard to argue much with the choice of Stanford. The Cardinal have verbal commitments not just from the #1 recruit in the class of 2015 Katie Ledecky, but also from #6 Ella Eastin. The Cal women have three of the top 5 recruits in National Teamers Kathleen Baker and Katie McLaughlin, plus Junior National Champion Amy Bilquist.
There’s still two publicly uncommitted members of our top 20 recruit ranking, Abbey Weitzeil and Ally Tetzloff. If Weitzeil were to end up at USC (she took a visit there last weekend), the Trojans would move heavily into this conversation, as they’ve already gotten commitments from #’s 14, 18, and 20.
- Stanford – 48.5%
- Cal – 25.5%
- Texas – 7.5%
- Arizona – 7.4%
- Other – 7.0%
- Indiana – 4.0%
Our new poll question is up on the home page: Should swimmers have to practice on Halloween in the afternoon/evening? We imagine coaches and athletes will have distinctly different opinions on this one.
