McSwain talks Nebraska offer

Nebraska was extremely active recruiting during the evaluation period particularly in the southeastern part of the country. This defensive end picked up an offer from the Huskers over spring break and likes their tradition.

Buford (Ga.) Lanier defensive end Trevon McSwain is coming to grips with being a senior this fall. The spring is over and he has the same area goals that he had set for himself last year.

"I just can't believe that I am going to be a senior," McSwain said. "I don't want it to be my last. I want to make first team all-region and all-city again this year."

The 6-foot-6 and 210-pound McSwain is quick for a man his size and brings a lot of pressure on the quarterback from his end position. McSwain is envisioning a lot of double teams this fall because of the scheme.

"I would say my get off on the ball and pursuing the quarterback. In the odd man front I will be head up on the offensive tackle. The double-team will be there a lot this year for me to fight through."

There have already been a number of trips that McSwain has had a chance to take. The highly touted defensive end is sitting on 14 offers and knows of one more trip that he will take with some of his team.

"I have been to Georgia Tech, North Carolina State, Vanderbilt, Duke and Tennessee," McSwain said. "I am sitting on 14 offers right now and I will be visiting Miami soon with a lot of teammates."

The college decision is something that McSwain has been thinking about. He definitely knows what he's looking for both in the school as well as in the team.

"The academics are important to my decision and the depth chart too. I'd like to play early wherever I go. I am also looking at the defensive scheme."

Nebraska is one of the fourteen offers on the table for McSwain. The recruiting coach for McSwain has been a familiar name for Nebraska fans and prospects in the southeastern part of the country this spring.

"I picked up the offer from Nebraska over spring break. Coach Charlton Warren is the recruiting coach for Nebraska. I saw him at my school and he seems like a real good guy."

McSwain says that he doesn't know a lot about Nebraska beyond the players that have gone onto the league after their time in Lincoln. He was humbled when he thought about his name making it all the way to Nebraska to draw an offer.

"I know that Nebraska puts a lot of defensive linemen in the NFL and that have a really good staff there. When I got the offer from Nebraska I was impressed that my name had gotten that far."
