Swain Down To Three

With three official visits under his belt, defensive tackle Maurice Swain will pick from the three schools that hosted him over the course of the last two months. Auburn, Kentucky and Mississippi State were all able to secure a weekend visit from Swain and one of those three programs will add the Georgia native to their spring roster in the coming weeks.

"I have three really good options," said Swain. "I am blessed to be in this position and have the chance to play at these schools. I am still thinking about everything and I am going to make my decision Wednesday morning."

Fresh off of an official visit to Lexington, Kentucky, Swain admits that he has some thinking to do before putting pen to signing day paper.

"I am going to sit down with my mama and one of my former coaches and figure out what's the best situation for me," said Swain. "I have to do what is best for me and my family. I just need some time to think about all of this.

"I had a good time on all of these visits and there are good things about every school."

Swain has made the most of his opportunity at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community where he blossomed into one of the top junior college defensive tackles in the country. While enrolled in Perkinston, Swain bonded with fellow teammate Martinas Rankin, an offensive lineman from Mendenhall, Mississippi.

"We are still talking about playing together these next two year, but we'll have to see," explained Swain. "I am not sure what I am going to do yet and I don't think he is either. We talked about it all last night.

"We have been good friends the two years we have been teammates at Gulf Coast, so the chance to keep playing together would be good."

In the end, Swain says he must make his own decision and that the final verdict will be in later this week when he signs his national letter of intent.

"I am just going to take these next couple of days and see what is best for me," said Swain. "It's a big decision and I want to be sure about what I'm doing. I want to be sure that I am making the best decision for me and my family and my future."
