Swanigan talks Indiana offer

Five-star center Caleb Swanigan picked up a big offer this week from the Indiana Hoosiers.

Recently Ft. Wayne (Ind.) Homestead center Caleb Swanigan was upgraded to five-star status in the class of 2016. Swanigan has had a tremendous sophomore year, and now recently picked up a big offer for his efforts.

Swanigan reported on his twitter account that Indiana extended an offer this week, and it was big for him. Schools such as Illinois, Michigan State, and others had already stepped forward, but now the in-state Hoosiers joined the party.

"It feels nice to be recruited by an in-state school like Indiana," said Swanigan. "It would make the drive easier for me to people to see me and for me to get home, and that is a good thing."

The Hoosiers haven't had Swanigan on campus this year, but that could be changing before the end of the season.

"Maybe this Sunday against Ohio State I will come down for a visit," explained Swanigan.

The only other school that Swanigan has visited this season is Michigan State, and he visited for the Spartans game against Nebraska.

At 6-foot-9 and 265 pounds, Swanigan is emerging as one of the best low post scorers in the country, and despite not being an elite athlete, he has the excellent hands, solid footwork, and high skill level to be one of the toughest covers in the class of 2016.

Do not expect any kind of quick decision from Swanigan who wants to go through the process and see all of his options before making any kind of decision.

Currently Swanigan is seen as the No. 13 player overall in the 2016 class and the No. 2 center.
