Diving Into 2021’s Top Swimming Recruits

Even though the summer is coming to an end, the swimming pool will still be a place to focus your attention this fall. There’s no shortage of talent entering the NCAA this season, and they’ll be looking to make a big splash when they compete for their universities.

One of the most promising prospects to keep an eye on this season will be Tori Huske, who grew up in Arlington, Virginia. If that name sounds familiar, it might ring a bell because of her participation in the Olympics this summer. She participated in the Women’s 100m Butterfly, finishing fourth, and was part of the Mixed 4 x 100m Medley Relay, which finished fifth.

Of greater note, Huske was part of the Women’s 4 x 100m Medley Relay which brought home a silver medal. She recorded that fastest reaction time for her team in that event at a minuscule 0.27 seconds. Her achievements before setting foot on campus as a college freshman are certainly notable, but the ultra-competitive Huske was hoping for an even better result at the Olympics.

“Being so close to the gold like that was a little disappointing,” Huske confessed. Via InsideNova.com

Huske will be swimming for Stanford University this fall, and will be a prized addition to the program.

On the boys side, Aiden Hayes will be a primary prospect to watch. From Oklahoma, Hayes is excited to be part of a recent movement that is putting his home state on the map as a hotbed of swimming talent.

“It’s a really big deal. Oklahoma doesn’t get the recognition in swimming. It is definitely not the biggest sport, or even top five. But it has started to pick up around the state,” he commented. Via SwimmingWorldMagazine.com

Hayes was chosen as Swimming World’s Male High School Swimmer of the Year, and has a bright future ahead of him. He re-wrote national recordbooks in the 100m Butterfly and the 50 yard Freestyle in his high school career. Hayes will continue swimming into stardom at North Carolina State University, and will be certainly be a person of interest come the next Olympics in 2024.
