D1 or D2 chances?

I am a sophomore in high school currently, and although it is a little early, I would like to know what level I could be at by the time colleges start to look at my class. Currently, I run a 16:53 5K (XC), 4:28 1600m, and a 9:45 3000m. I'm not sure what level of colleges would look for that level... any help?

    Pretty good times for a Soph, I'd say you have a pretty decent chance if you continue to progress.

    I would start by asking your high school coaches what they think. Beyond that, there are a lot of data out there for track. Some schools post recruiting standards (not absolutes, but they provide an idea). Here's an example at the link below.


    Those marks are for junior and in some cases senior year, so you don't have to be there yet.

    You can also look at track sites like TFRRS to see what current marks are for athletes at different universities, and sites like athletic.net show what marks current college athletes had when they were in high school.

    Good luck!
