Chances of being recruited? (Swimming)

I'm currently a junior in my high school swimming team

I currently go a 23.28 in my 50 free
and a 1:01.45 in my 100 Breastroke (I qualified for New York All State and will compete in Buffalo)

What are my chances of being recruited?\

    I think you're more likely to get accurate answers if you go to the athletic recruiting forum, here:

    Athletic Recruits - College Confidential

    There are many regulars there who have kids who've gone through Ivy recruiting for swimming. Good luck.

    @crazyAznDude You should not wait for the coaches to contact you. Be proactive and email the coach and tell him you're interested in swimming at Columbia. There will be a prospective athlete questionnaire on their website (swimming website) that you should compete also. This is where you list your best times, awards, etc. Some of the colleges can also take walk-on's while others cannot. It depends on the school.
