Missy Franklin Commits to University of California


One of the biggest questions for fans of Team USA following the 2012 London Olympics was where would gold medalist Missy Franklin attend college. The jokes and observations were already being made during the games themselves that whatever school that was lucky enough get the young superstar to comitt would be solid gold for the next two years — pun very much intended.

The potential destinations for Franklin included Georgia and Texas, but she chose a school that has won the last two national championships and churned out another Olympic gold medalist. Missy Franklin is taking her aquatic talents from Colorado to California to attend the University of California.
