Based on extensive and exclusive research from CollegeSports360.com, there are nearly 1,000 competitors (may end up being more, after further late additions) at the 2012 Olympics who are former/current U.S. college athletes (or attended a U.S. college while training in a sport not sponsored by the NCAA). The bulk of these competitors have competed for Division I varsity programs (plus some D2 and D3) – in addition to several others who have competed for college club teams in sports not sponsored by the NCAA (such as men's rowing, archery and sailing).

Of the 36 different sports in the Olympic program, there are 33 featuring U.S. college products (men, women, or both) – all but team handball and table tennis, plus a recent Olympic addition that has low participation numbers (rhythmic gymnastics).

CollegeSports360's research included checking records for Team USA entrants in sports not common on the college varsity/club level ... and that research revealed current/past U.S. collegians competing in the 2012 Olympics from the following sports: badminton, boxing, canoe (kayak), cycling, equestrian, judo, modern pentathlon and taekwondo.

When breaking down this list of nearly 1,000 Olympians with ties to U.S. colleges, four schools are bunched at the top with similar totals – as the CollegeSports360 list includes four schools bunched near the top, led by Stanford with ties to 41 different Olympian, followed by 40 for the University of Southern California (USC), plus 38 from Stanford's Bay-area rival the University of California and 37 from the University of Florida. Others among the top-10 schools with the most products on this Olympians list include: Auburn (27), Georgia (26), UCLA (25), Texas A&M (23), Washington (22) and Texas (21).

The Olympic competitors list covers nearly 200 different colleges (199), most of them on the Division I level but also 12 current D2 schools (Cal Poly Pomona, CS Dominguez Hills, CU-Colorado Springs, CW Post, Grand Valley, Harding, Lewis, Lindenwood, Lynn, Neb.-Kearney, Roberts Wesleyan & Ursuline) ... 15 current D3 schools (Bates, Chapman, Conn. College, Gaston, Greensboro, Hobart, Ithaca, McDaniel, Middlebury, Millikin, Roanoke, Roger Williams, St. Mary's of MD, Tufts & Willamette) ... plus NAIA schools Dickinson State, Morningside and Oklahoma Baptist.

Note that this Olymians list includes athletes who have competed at 4-year schools. A slightly larger master list – featuring well over 1,000 individuals – also includes Olympic alternates, head coaches, full-time assistant coaches and a couple key support staff. Some individuals may be included on multiple schools' lists (transfers, coaches who previously were college athletes, etc.). The "alternate" designation can be hard to clarify for certain sports/countries, so there likely will be some slight adjustments to the competitors and master list as the alternates are clarified. Also note that some current/former graduate students are included (but not "incoming grad students") while current volunteer and assistant coaches or any former assistant coaches were not included (unless they also were a former student-athlete at that school). Incoming freshmen, as formal recruits/signees, are included. In the rare instances when athletes turned professional before competing for a college program, they still are included on this list if they were enrolled as a full-time student, pursued a formal degree program, graduated, etc.
