We ranked Stanford’s class #1 back in the summer of 2014, and guess what? They delivered.

That means without even considering relays, that quartet could have placed inside the top 15 at NCAAs every year of their career.

Though Indiana doesn’t have the relays or the incoming classes that other NCAA programs have, its brute individual-event strength will keep it relevant in 2018.
