Florida OL Swindle plans Louisville visit

Louisville assistant Larry Slade checked up on Jacksonville (FL) Creekside prospect Jordan Swindle last week, and the 6-7, 285-pound offensive lineman plans to visit the Cardinals this summer.

Louisville has strong interest in Jordan Swindle, a 6-7, 285-pound offensive lineman from Jacksonville (FL) Creekside. Swindle, who holds three offers from BCS programs, likes Charlie Strong's program and plans to visit the Cardinals this summer.

Last week, Louisville assistant Larry Slade made a stop to Creekside to check up on Swindle.

"Louisville stopped by the other day and Coach Slade stayed and watched practice," Swindle said. "I've been keeping in touch with them. I think Louisville would be a pretty good choice because of their pre-Med program and I think I'd have a pretty good chance to get playing time as a freshman."

Though Swindle is strongly considering Louisville, two of the Cards biggest rivals – Kentucky and West Virginia – are also in pursuit of the promising offensive lineman. Both the Wildcats and Mountaineers have extended offers to Swindle. FAU and Southern Mississippi have also offered Swindle, who plans to make several visits this summer.

"I'm trying to fit as many as I can into my schedule," Swindle said. "I want to visit Kentucky, Louisville, West Virginia, Florida and Miami."

"It seems like Louisville wants me the most out of the schools that have offered. I call them once every two weeks or every week. They send me a bunch of hand-written stuff. I mostly talk with Coach Slade."

Swindle also expressed interest in West Virginia and Kentucky.

"West Virginia is the one of the winningest teams not to win the national championship and I think they are going to be pretty good next year," he said. "Kentucky is getting better with Joker Philips, which is good because they've always been really bad."

Swindle plans to make several unofficial visits this summer before he seriously considers a decision.

"I have to see all the colleges before I make a decision," said Swindle. "It has to feel like home. Academics and playing time are big factors."
