Name: Thomas Dunstan
Country: United States of America
Event: Men's Water Polo
USC men's water polo is already one of the most powerful programs in the country, and the future is even brighter with Team USA talent Thomas Dunstan coming in next season. The Mater Dei product grew up in Connecticut, but he is happy to stay in Southern California, home to the best water polo in the country.
The 18-year-old already has a strong international history, grabbing gold with the USA Youth Team at the 2014 UANA Junior Pan American Championship. With the senior team, he scored four goals in the 2016 FINA World League Super Final, earning himself a ticket to Rio.
"Thomas is definitely one of the top two recruits in the nation this year," said USC head coach Jovan Vavic. "The kid is big, fast and a lefty. He's a great swimmer, has long arms, can play at 2-meters, shoot from the outside, play 2-meter defense and help in the counterattack. He's also a great passer -- almost too unselfish in his passing. He's really a complete package."
