Tre’ Swilling has begun to narrow down his top schools.
On Tuesday evening, the four-star New Orleans cornerback released a Top 9 that includes five SEC schools.
LSU, Alabama, Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Florida all cracked Swilling’s top schools list, which also featured Florida State, Georgia Tech, Michigan and UCLA.
Over the weekend, Swilling outlined to SEC Country what he liked about the SEC schools mentioned, including the in-state Tigers.
“The schools I talk to a lot are Tennessee, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Alabama, LSU, UCLA and Texas A&M,” Swilling said. “I’m starting to talk to Florida more, and I’m hoping to get an offer from them. You know, the LSU vs. Florida for ‘DBU’ things I kind of like … like the rivalry and competition amongst themselves. It’s a great competition.”
“Things are great. I talk to them a lot, if not the most, and all of their coaches,” he added, on LSU. “It’s an hour and half away, a family-oriented place. There’s not one thing they can do different. They’re making a great push and everything is going fine.”
Tennessee and Texas A&M are two noticeable SEC teams not to make the list.
Swilling and his brother, Bruce Jordan-Swilling previously visited Alabama when they picked up an offer from the Crimson Tide.
Swilling’s father, former New Orleans Saints linebacker Pat Swilling, attended Georgia Tech, the only other school besides LSU and Alabama that Swilling has visited thus far.
Michigan was among the first teams to extend an offer to the 6-foot, 180-pound Brother Martin High School (New Orleans) product.
