What appeared to be a Junior Day that had a lot of out-of-state flair has changed its makeup.
Late on Friday night, two of Louisiana’s premier prospects decided to attend LSU’s Junior Day camp on Saturday.
Bruce Jordan-Swilling and Tre Swilling, the Nos. 6 and 12 prospects out of The Boot, respectively, told SEC Country that they would be on LSU’s campus.
Both Jordan-Swilling and Swilling are four-star athletes out of Brother Martin High School (New Orleans).
Jordan-Swilling, who measures in at 6-feet, 215 pounds, has played both linebacker and running back at the high school level. Different colleges are courting him at different positions. He is rated as the nation’s No. 6 outside linebacker, but was one of Louisiana’s leading rushers in 2015.
The nation’s No. 26 cornerback, Swilling is 6-foot, 180-pound lockdown corner. Considered the top prospect at the position in New Orleans, Swilling is also in the conversation for the top cornerback in Louisiana.
The brothers are strongly considering attending college together. They hold offers from numerous schools, including Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee and Texas A&M.
What it means: Jordan-Swilling and Swilling are no strangers to LSU, as they reside about an hour away from the Baton Rouge, La., campus.
The last-minute decision — if anything — bodes well for the Tigers’, as LSU is one of the top colleges in the mix for both of the brothers.
Junior Day will give the prospects a chance to speak firsthand with coach Les Miles and some of the new members of the LSU coaching staff, including running backs coach Jabbar Juluke, defensive coordinator Dave Aranda and defensive backs coach Corey Raymond.
Do not expect a commitment to come in the aftermath of the camp, but it could help bolster LSU’s chances entering the spring.
