Swoope Headed East For College

Erik Swoope, one of the best athletes in the West Coast class of 2010, has given a verbal commitment to an ACC school...

Erik Swoope, 6-4 SR PF/SF North Hollywood (Calif.) Harvard-Westlake, has committed to Miami, according to a source close to the recruitment.

Swoope is an extremely explosive athlete, with a great motor and terrific ability to finish around the basket. While he's undersized at the four, he's got a chance to defend the three at the next level. In any event, he's a great competitor and the kind of kid that makes any program better.

UNLV, Portland, UC Riverside, Washington State, San Diego State and Utah were among the programs that expressed interest in Swoope prior to his commitment.
