Swann is taking an unofficial visit to Missouri on Monday, July 27.
“I’m looking forward to getting to know the Missouri coaching staff,” said Swann. “You know, just finding out what Missouri is all about in person. I’ve done my homework, but I want to find out who the coaching staff is in person, who I’d be working with on a day-to-day basis. I’m looking forward to finding out more about Missouri, from an academic standpoint, as well.”
