The time depends on the individual as well as the college that you are planning to attend. For the top colleges such as LSU and Texas, a time of 1:52.00 or better will get the coaches’ attention. However, for lesser known programs or County Colleges a time of 1:54.00 or 1:55.00 will suffice. Of course, the faster you can run the better your chances.
