British & Irish NCAA Class of 2012 – Men

The conclusion of the NCAA Championships last week signalled the end of the 2011/12 academic and athletic year. Athletes and coaches across the nation will now have the luxury of being able to take some well earned rest. The collegiate conveyor belt does move quickly, and it will not be long before thoughts head towards the fall cross country season. However, if there was ever a time to take a holiday then now is it.

We recently listed some of the known British and Irish athletes who are heading stateside this fall. At the other end of the spectrum, we will now take a look at the class of 2012 and see how they have fared athletically during their time in the NCAA.

This list may not be entirely accurate. With the combination of redshirting and sixth year eligibility scenarios, one or two of the athletes we list as seniors may actually be coming back next year. The list also does not account for athletes who may decide not to return to the US despite having eligibility remaining.

We will start with the British and Irish male seniors for 2012:
