Storm Tracking: Missy in Berkeley This Coming Weekend

  63 Braden Keith | August 27th, 2012 | College, College Recruiting, News

As if Northern California isn’t always a hotspot for swimming, this coming weekend it will be particularly in-focus of the college swimming fandom, as two out of the biggest recruiting superstar we’ve seen in at least a decade will be taking her recruiting trip to Cal.

Missy Franklin will be in the north Bay Area taking in Teri McKeever’s program over Labor Day weekend.

Missy has said that aside from Cal, she will also make stops at USC and Georgia for sure, with Texas getting a “maybe”. She still has not declared publicly that she’s made up her mind on whether to go pro or not.

Two current members of the Cal team were on the U.S. Olympic Team with Franklin in London this past summer: Caitlin Leverenz and incoming freshman Rachel Bootsma. Two members of the post-grad group were there as well, Dana Vollmer and Natalie Coughlin, so there’s definitely already some relationships built with the Golden Bears.

According to this article, USC is now the ‘maybe’ visit while Texas and Georgia are for sure visits, and those are supposed to happen in October.

Georgia offers alot. Here long time friend from her team in colorado stars jordan mattern, Kara lynn joyce will help I am sure and schmitty and vreland swam with her on the 800 free relay. Along with a big plus I feel the team. Its ONE team mens and womens. Practices are together meets are together and one head coach for the team. It is a great thing, I always enjoyed swimming with male and female swimmers it gave a better since of a team I feel.

Has anyone heard where Missy is going this weekend? I am betting on UGA. I hope she will have fun.
