And, be sure to watch our LIVE FloXC Podium Reveal Show Monday, August 26th at 10 AM CT. The No. 18 men’s spot goes to Southern Utah and here's why:

Probable Top Five:

SR Aidan Reed (14:16 5K; 29:13 10K; 51st at ’18 NCAA XC)

SR Josh Collins (8:02 3K; 14:12 5K; 50th at ’17 NCAA XC)

JR Christian Ricketts (8:17 3K; 14:33 5K; 20th at ’18 NCAA Mountain XC)

JR Nate Osterstock (8:19 3K; 14:27 5K; 99th at ’18 NCAA XC)

SR Sean Newcomb (14:29 5K; 135th at ’18 NCAA XC)

Impact Freshmen/Transfers:

Kevin Ramos via Riverside, CA (9:06 3200; 2nd at ’18 CA State XC)

Ethan Danforth via Canyon Country, CA (9:00 3200; 3rd at ’18 CA State XC)

Analysis:

The Southern Utah Thunderbirds return their top four scorers from their 21st team finish last year. The team will be led by senior Aidan Reed who finished 51st last year and has run a 29:13 10k on the track. Reed will likely improve to All-American status in 2019. Returning also from last year are upperclassmen Christian Ricketts, Nate Osterstock and Sean Newcomb. However, the key to this team’s success will be the addition of redshirt senior Josh Collins who placed 50th overall at the 2017 championships. If Collins can run up with Reed the Thunderbirds will have a formidable 1-2 punch at NCAAs.
