Visits go well for Swanigan

Caleb Swanigan is finishing up his senior season while also making big visits. Here is the latest.

Five-star center Caleb Swanigan has been hitting the recruiting trail hard lately. The Ft. Wayne (Ind.) Homestead standout recently made a pair of big visits, and continues to move forward in the recruiting process.

It was a tough senior night for Swanigan as his team as their 19 game winning streak was snapped. Still Swanigan finished the game with 30 points and 17 rebounds.

“I had to come out early with my shoe coming apart and I think that was big,” said Swanigan. “They went up 10 and got some momentum in the first quarter and their confidence.”

He continued, “I think I played well, but it wasn’t an all-around great game. I did a lot of individual things well, but I didn’t play well all the time which my team needed tonight.”

Swanigan’s big game came on the heels of a visit down to Duke to watch the Blue Devils take on arch rival North Carolina.

About the trip Swanigan said, “It was crazy there. The fans were hyped and it was a good atmosphere, I had a good time.”

One of the major selling points that Duke has is how they are using this year’s star freshman Jahlil Okafor within their offense.

“Seeing how they use Jahlil and how they get him the ball within their offense is definitely appealing,” noted Swanigan.

Swanigan also recently visited Purdue, and Boilermakers boss Matt Painter was in attendance to see Swanigan on Friday night.

About the Boilermakers, Swanigan said, “I like them a lot. I think I would be more of like a high post guy there playing away from the basket with the centers that they already have there.”

Up next for Swanigan is a potential end of the month visit to California, but nothing has been set in stone with that trip yet.

Still there is no specific timetable for the No. 6 ranked center prospect in the 2015 class, but no decision is expected before at least the all-star games following the season.
