Speedster Still High On The Tigers

This speedy prospect says that he had a great visit to Auburn over the weekend.

Tucker, Ga.--The speedy James Swinton, one of Auburn's early verbal commitments of 2004, says that he really enjoyed his visit to Auburn and that it has made his commitment to the Tigers even stronger than it was before.

Swinton says the he couldn't have asked for much more out of the trip. "Everything was fine at Auburn. It was a pretty good visit and I had a good time," he explains. "I would go ahead and give it a ten"

The 6-1, 165-pound speedster, who had receiver Courtney Taylor as his player host, says that they got along very well. "We just went out and ate and went to his house and just played games and stuff like that."

The receiver from Tucker High School says that there a quite a few things that he likes about the Tigers program. "Well, I like Auburn as a town or a little city, the college campus," he says. "I think it is not that difficult to get around. I like the team and the coaches and how they coach and the weight-program because you can gain weight quick. As a freshman I may get a little playing time, but I'm not worried about it. I will just work hard."

The speedy star says that he will be running track again this spring and notes that he has already racked up some pretty impressive times. "I'll probably run track and that is it," he says about his spring plans. "I will probably run the 100, the 200 or the 400. In the 200 I would have to say a 21.9 and in the 100 a 10.7, somewhere around there."

Swinton, whose only visit to date has been to check out the Tigers, says there is a chance that he might take one more visit this weekend. "I don't know right now," he says. "It would be Ole Miss, but I don't know if I am going to take it right now."
