World champions Missy Franklin of Cal, Ryan Lochte, Katie Ledecky and Matt Grevers are headlining the 2013-14 national team picked by USA Swimming.

The team announced Tuesday includes 112 swimmers.

Cal has 12 current or former athletes on the team led by Olympic stars Franklin, Natalie Coughlin and Nathan Adrian.

The other Golden Bears: Anthony Ervin, Jacob Pebley, Josh Prenot and Tom Shields for the men and Rachel Bootsma, Caitlin Leverenz, Celina Li, Elizabeth Pelton and Dana Vollmer for the women.

Stanford is represented by Bobby Bollier, Maya Dirado, Eugene Goodsoe, Bernard Johnson, Felica Lee and Chad La Tourette. Also on the team are Haley Anderson of Livermore and Katy Freeman of Concord.

Franklin, a freshman for the Bears, took spots in the 100 and 200 free, as well as the 100 and 200 back after winning six gold medals at worlds, the most ever by a female swimmer. Lochte qualified in a team-leading five events: 100-meter freestyle, 200 free, 200 backstroke, 100 butterfly and 200 individual medley.

Ledecky, who set two world records in Barcelona, was among six other swimmers qualifying in at least three events, joined by Elizabeth Beisel, Tyler Clary, DiRado, Sarah Henry and Megan Romano.

The team was picked based on combined results from the world and national championships, U.S. Open and World University Games.

El Cerrito High cornerback Adarius Pickett committed to UCLA, just days after returning from his official visit to the school.

The 6-foot, 185-pound senior is rated a four-star recruit by Rivals and Scout. His long list of offers includes much of the Pac-12.

  • Darrien Washington, a 6-foot-2 senior center at Skyline High, confirmed she has orally committed to Nebraska.

    Washington also considered Utah before choosing the Huskers. Last season, Washington averaged 16.4 points, 12.6 rebounds and 4.9 blocks per game. She was a first-team All-City pick in the Oakland Athletic League.
