Top Recruit in Class of 2015 Andrew Seliskar Makes College Decision

The #1-ranked recruit in the high school class of 2015 has made his college decision. Andrew Seliskar from the Nation’s Capital Swim Club (NCAP) has verbally committed to the Cal Golden Bears.

Seliskar is another recruit in the class of 2015 who can’t be defined by a specialty because he’s so good in so many different places. In yards, his bests are:

  • 50 free – 20.06
  • 100 free – 44.38
  • 200 free – 1:35.17
  • 500 free – 4:18.97
  • 100 back – 46.89
  • 200 back – 1:42.23
  • 100 breast – 53.24
  • 200 breast – 1:52.21
  • 100 fly – 46.50
  • 200 fly – 1:42.55
  • 200 IM – 1:43.22
  • 400 IM – 3:41.19

Even for the defending NCAA Champions Cal, Seliskar will have a significant, noteworthy impact on Cal immediately as a freshman (much as Ryan Murphy did last season).

His times are already fast enough to be an A-finalist at NCAA’s in the 200 breaststroke, 200 fly and 400 IM. He could very well swim the breaststroke leg on Cal’s medley relay as a freshman (though they’ve brought in many good breaststrokers this fall) and could also have an impact on any of the three free relays as well.

With two more seasons of training under his belt, those projections should rise even higher by the time he gets to his first NCAA Championship meet in the spring of 2016.

Seliskar was the 2013 FINA Junior World Champion in the 200 fly, holds four individual National Age Group Records and two relay records as well:

  • 15-16 200 yard breast – 1:54.87
  • 15-16 200 yard IM – 1:44.03
  • 17-18 200 yard breaststroke – 1:52.21
  • 15-16 200 meter IM – 1:59.84
  • 15-18 400 yard medley relay
  • 15-16 400 meter medley relay

Seliskar has promise to eventually win NCAA National titles at Cal, but he’s already a USA Swimming National Champion. He won the 400 yard IM at the 2013 AT&T Winter National Championships and placed 2nd in the 200 IM and the 200 fly as well.

His older brother Stephen Seliskar is a junior swimmer at Purdue.

Great job by SwimSwam for building up suspense and not giving it away in the title or picture. Worked up my heart a little bit.

Seliskar is on my swim team (saw him swim a 25 meter under water the whole time in 9.5)!

He’s a great and talented versatile swimmer and I couldn’t imagine a better fit for him than Cal.
