While they may be in the pursuit of perfection on the field, college athletes still feature an innocent aura about them that reeks of media inexperience.
Before these beautiful athletes turn pro, they are youthful buds with no idea as to their potential on camera.
As these students train for a promising athletic career, the media find the diamonds in the rough; the beauty beneath the train wreck of societal expectations. It’s their beauty that will lead to immortality.
Here are the some of the hottest college athletes.
10. Marisa RuckelThis may be the last chance we have to include this Lindsey Wilson College player, considering she was allegedly arrested in a prostitution raid recently. While Marisa Ruckel's voluptuous tendencies surely won't help her much in court, her winning smile might be able to sway the male jury members.
9. Shelby ShipleyWhile her brother continues to fight for receptions on a feisty Cincinnati Bengals team, Shelby Shipley keeps battling for her own spotlight. As a sophomore on the Abilene Christian University women's basketball team, this sexy guard may only have averaged 10.1 minutes per game, but she was credited with two blocked shots and eight steals. She has undoubtedly stolen plenty of her fans' hearts as well.
7. Lauren Santacroce
With her Texas A&M lacrosse profile noting her as an "athletic and aggressive scrapper and fighter," Lauren Santacroce seems like the ideal candidate to land a steady modeling job after she graduates. Two thumbs up are undoubtedly her concurrence with the suggestion.
6. Margo McAuleyWhile her athletic prowess may not bring the most fan appreciation, her ability to shine in front of the camera certainly makes up for it. Seemingly already a model, Florida State soccer beauty Margo McAuley clearly has the moxy and the attitude to excite her fans without moving an inch. This is the cliched innocent, albeit sexy look. Typical.
5. Vanessa Chin
Seemingly the new Allison Stokke, UC Davis Senior Vanessa Chin is beginning to see her pictures go viral, with beleaguered fans stoked for a new story. With little known about her athletic ability, Chin is undoubtedly close to modeling stardom. While Stokke rejected her exposure, it's still there for the taking if Chin wants it.
4. Katie Marshall
As a Senior forward on the 2010 Lyon College women's soccer team, Katie Marshall undoubtedly opened more eyes with her beauty than her playing prowess. She may not be lighting up the college scene anymore, but we couldn't possibly leave off arguably the sexiest college athlete ever to come through the ranks. Modeling is seemingly her next endeavor.
3. Katelin Swift
Former University of North Flordia student and sexy soccer star Katelin Swift scored 22 goals in 57 career games.
2. Ali Watt
Basketball player at the University of Georgia.
1. Allison Stokke
Stokke‘s dream of becoming the world’s best pole vaulter seems to have been replaced by another dream: to be removed from the sexual spotlight that Internet bloggers have brightly shined on her over the course of the past few weeks.
