Auburn commitment still plans trip to UT

Just because someone is committed doesn't mean they are through with the recruiting process. Gadsden City's Antonio Swain is currently committed to Auburn, but it appears that hasn't stopped other college coaches from making the rounds this spring. Go "Inside" to see what Swain had to say about the University of Tennessee.

Just because someone is committed doesn't mean they are through with the recruiting process.

Gadsden City's Antonio Swain is currently committed to Auburn, but it appears that hasn't stopped other college coaches from making the rounds this spring.

Tennessee linebacker coach Lance Thompson made a stop by Swain's high school last week and apparently made an impression.

"Coach Thompson came by the school to visit with my coach," Swain told InsideTennessee.com. "That was pretty cool that they came that far just to see me."

Swain still names Auburn as his favorite, but puts the University of Tennessee right behind the Tigers for his services.

"Tennessee is right behind Auburn for sure," Swain said. "I want to come check out Tennessee and probably will go to camp there this summer."

Swain did get the chance last fall to take in the Rocky Top "Experience."

"I came up for the Auburn game," Swain said. "It was live; I had never seen a game that the atmosphere was so crazy. Knoxville is a lot bigger than Gadsden City, that's for sure."

Swain, a 6-foot-2, 215-pound defensive safety, holds offer from Auburn, Tennessee, Alabama, Clemson, Kentucky and Southern Mississippi.
