SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Roundup – 10/12/15 to 10/18/15

For more commitment articles, be sure to check out SwimSwam’s College Recruiting channel.

The countdown has begun; just three and a half weeks until National Letter of Intent Signing Period (November 11-18, 2015).

  • Greg Brocato – North Carolina – Brocato is our Number 8 boys recruit in the high school class of 2016, and the lone Tar Heel commit among the top 20. One of the top sprinters in his class, Brocato should add significant firepower to the UNC lineup, especially in relays.
  • Shane Forker and Courtney Mykkanen – Cal – The Golden Bears had another great week, this time keeping two of California’s talented high schoolers in state. Cal men have landed a tremendous class so far, reeling in 5 members of our Top 20: Albert Gwo, Andrea Vergani, Ethan Young, Jack Xie, and Michael Jensen.
  • James Murphy – Stanford – Murphy (19) became the third Top 20 verbal commit for the Stanford men’s team, as they try to keep up with their cross-bay rivals in Berkeley.
  • Braga Verhage – Tennessee – Although not ranked on our Top 20 list (which, because of uncertainty of intention does not include foreign athletes), Verhage is one of the most talented sprinters in the class. The Australian junior national champion will add to the Vols’ short game, as well as to their relays.
