In the semifinals at the beginning of the session, Morozov blasted a 21.44 to clear the former record of 21.47.

Retroactively, it’s Will Licon and the Texas Longhorns who had the best recruiting class back in 2013. Where did they rank and how did the other classes in the top 12 fare over four years?

Here’s our predictions for the top 25 teams at this week’s event.
Cal’s Ryan Murphy will chase his own NCAA and American Record in the 200 back after dominating the field with a 1:35.73 last season. Now a 2-time Olympic backstroke champion, Murphy will be swimming in his last ever NCAA Meet, and this could be the last time we see him focus on yards. If successful in defending his backstroke titles, Murphy will have 4-peated in both.
Cal’s Ryan Murphy headlines a loaded 100 back field that includes 9 of the top 25 fastest performers of all time.
Florida and NC State should provide a push, but the Longhorns have to be the favorite to repeat at champions in the 800 free relay.
