3-star small forward Cole Swider has narrowed his list of suitors to 8, per a recent tweet from his account.

In case that image is hard to see, Swider has narrowed his list to Michigan, Syracuse, Villanova, Miami (Fla.), Indiana, Creighton, Xavier and Providence.

Though currently rated just a 3-star (#143 nationally by the Composite), Swider has been one of the breakout players so far in the Nike EYBL. Known primarily as an elite shooter, he’s even had the analysts raving about his improvement in other facets of his game. He’s in the midst of blowing up and will likely be a consensus Top-100 player at the next rankings update.

Villanova offered Swider in February after scouting him, and Swider visited campus unofficially for the Creighton game during the season. Currently, Xavier has the lone pick in his Crystal Ball.
