Some recruiting news out of the NBPA Top 100 Camp broke today. Cole Swider, a 4-star small forward from Barrington, Rhode Island, has narrowed his list of possible suitors to four, per his Twitter account.

Syracuse, Duke, and Xavier join Villanova in Swider’s final four schools.

Also listed in his tweet are three of his four official visit dates. Swider will be at Syracuse from today, June 18th, to the 20th.

From there he will head to Duke from June 23rd to the 24th, before going to Xavier from June 26th-27th. An official visit to Villanova has yet to be announced, and that will likely be crucial if the ‘Cats are going to land the fast-rising wing.

Swider has blown up nationally in the last few months, going from barely being in the Top 150 of 247 Sports composite rankings, to currently being ranked at #89. Swider had a terrific spring on the EYBL circuit, and his rise has continued after a very strong performance at the NBPA top 100 camp.

A decision seems close for Swider, and Duke currently leads in the Crystal Ball.
