UCLA. There are tons of sub 4:20 guys and sub 5:00 girls within 50 miles of campus. The academics are great. The weather is amazing. Great campus with major athletic funding. Even if you just recruited from socal you should still be top 10 every year in xc. No other school has as much going for it but does less. Seriously, it's not even close.
They told my son 4:12/9:16 to pound sand.
When did he run that? As a junior or senior? There’s a BIG difference in terms of the recruiting cycle. And when did he get a hold of them? They have decided to put zero $ into the distances & now have a very strict roster cap...something like 10-12 men for their XC roster or something insane...
