Schwindel impressed by Spring Game

Hancock County's Michael Schwindel has watched his stock soar since Kentucky offered him a scholarship two months ago.

Although UK remains the only school to offer up to this point, sources close to the situation, believe two more schools could be getting into the race for his services.

"Two other schools have indicated they will offer Mike sometime this summer," said the source. "He's on everyone's board right now."

The senior-to-be is currently attending "Get Quick," three days a week to improve his speed and jumping ability to prepare for camps this summer.

Michael Schwindel intends on making his third unofficial visit to UK's campus, for Kentucky's summer camp slated for June.

His first trip to Lexington was an experience;

"Mike was really impressed with his visit to the Blue and White Game," said a family relative. "He really liked everything about U of K and Coach Steve Brown. The most impressive thing about the trip was when Coach Brooks invited Mike into his office for a five or six minute one on one private meeting."

Still the decision remains: basketball or football.

The 6-foot-5 standout was recently named to the "Tremendous Twenty-Six," an honor that goes to the state of Kentucky's best 26 football players.

"I don't think Mike is ready at this time to say whether or not he is going to play football or basketball. He loves both sports so much he is having a hard time giving one up in order to play the other."

According to his father, Army has offered Schwindel for basketball.

As far as summer plans are concerned, Schwindel will attend the Blue Chip Basketball Camp and the Louisville camp, in addition to UK's camp in June.
