Rising forward Cole Swider drops top four schools and visit dates


Cole Swider has been picking up some serious steam in his recruitment with his play on the Nike EYBL circuit this summer. He's ranked as a four star power forward by ESPN in the class of 2018 and the No. 1 player in the state of Rhode Island. While some recruits are still figuring out which schools they like and want to take unofficial visits to, Swider already has a top four with visit dates:

The two big schools in Syracuse and Duke will get his first two visits with the smaller, but still powerful, Xavier and Villanova will get the other two. Villanova doesn't have dates set yet, but the fact they made the list and will likely get to make the last impression certainly helps them. The 6'7", 203-pound forward might be undersized for the "power" position at the college level, but he could expand his game under the tutelage of any of the fine coaches at those schools.

Swider also holds offers from Michigan, Miami, Indiana, Providence and Creighton.
