Evan visited the Oxford campus this weekend and left with an itch in his belly.
"Growing up in SEC country, well, I always wanted to play in the SEC. I was hoping it was going to work out, and it did. I committed to them tonight. I called Coach Markuson and let him know. He was happy I made my decision."
There was also a couple more factors that played in his decision.
"I want to major in pre-law and they have a great law school. That was big for me, and I just like the family atmosphere."
What are OM's plans for Swindall?
"I guess they want me to come in and work hard this year, and next year I will have a chance to compete and play."
The Rebels have the center position in mind.
"That is what they want me to play. I played center my sophomore year, and I played some center this year, so I have some experience. I guess playing center for so long, I could snap the ball with either hand if I needed too (laugh). Growing up with a father who is a head coach, I guess you can say that he has prepared me pretty well for the next level. I am just glad that I will get a chance to play in the SEC."
