College Recruit Rankings Profile, Update: Five-Star Shannon Vreeland, Class of 2010

PHOENIX, Arizona, August 18. NEARLY a year ago, we profiled five-star prospect Shannon Vreeland of the Class of 2010 as part of our Swimming World College Recruit Rankings Profile series. She's back with a few updates from the recruiting trail today.

The all-around performer swims for the Kansas City Blazers and goes to Blue Valley West High.

Vreeland, who updates her profile in the Swimming World College Recruit Rankings powered by Take Your Marks on a regular basis, represents the Kansas City Blazers and preps at Blue Valley West High.

She owns several strong long course meter times: 100m free 55.94; 200m free 2:01.29; 200m back 2:14.82; 200m IM 2:17.95; 400m IM 4:50.34.

What colleges are you interested in so far?
In no particular order, University of Florida, University of Georgia, University of Minnesota, Stanford, and University of Virginia.

What has the recruiting process been like so far, now that you are allowed to be called by coaches?
It's been a lot easier than I thought it would be. I'm not a huge fan of talking on the phone so I thought it would be really awkward and difficult but it's really not. Most of the coaches have been nice and incredibly easy to talk to. I've enjoyed learning about a lot of different schools and hearing what the coaches have to say. Now, I'm just looking forward to my trips and meeting the teams and coaches!

Is there anything else interesting that you'd like our readers to know about you?
I have a twin sister! We're completely opposite and look nothing alike but compared to most twins we get along really well. She's pretty much my best friend.
