July 1st opens the new recruiting season, so we thought we would remind you where we are so far with the high school class of 2016. We at SwimSwam love the recruiting season, and we especially enjoy seeing how many different schools provide opportunities for swimmers and divers of all levels to continue to compete while they pursue their college degrees.

becca mann usc commitAs at June 30, 2016, we have published articles on over 1200 student-athletes. And counting! Our articles, when viewed in aggregate, tell the story of swimming at the collegiate level in the United States. They tell where the athletes are coming from, where they’re going, where they’re needed, and whose footsteps they’re following.

We’ve written about some really big hitters (e.g., Grant ShoultsMaxime Rooney, Meghan Small, Michael Jensen, Beata Nelson, and Becca Mann) as well as swimmers joining brand-new programs (e.g., Indiana State, University of Sioux Falls). In the spreadsheet below, you can follow along by sorting by conference, by college, by state, by high school, by LSC… however you would like to view the trends. We’ll update this list as we continue to wrap up more recruits, so bookmark this page to keep track!

Would like to see more D3 athletes on the list. They may not get scholarships for swimming but often get academic ones and swim for the pure enjoyment of the sport. My daughter almost quit swimming until a coach from a D3 program discussed how much he enjoyed coaching at this level after leaving a D1 program. The swimmers did not have to worry about new recruits taking away scholarships and the team was very cohesive and close knit. My daughter will swim at Worcester Polytechnic Institute with their main rival being MIT in the NEWMAC conference. A number of WPI ‘s swimmers went to NCAA’s in Greensboro this year. She is right on Senior Sectional cuts and hopes to… Read more »
