Junior Guard Headed To Big West

Derrell Swanson, a high-scoring junior guard from Southern California, ended his recruitment recently when he committed to a Big West program...

Derrell Swanson, 6-1 JR SG Lake Elsinore (Calif.) Lakeside, has committed to UC Riverside, according to a source close to the recruitment.

Swanson is a bit of a sleeper as he plays in an area that doesn't get a lot of attention. But he's got a solid body and he can score from multiple spots on the court. He should eventually be a very good player for Riverside.

SMU was among the schools showing early interest in Swanson prior to his commitment.
