His senior season was cut short due to a foot injury suffered in his second game, but he will be early enrolling and good to go for the spring to begin his journey.
Swindell was an early get for Wake Forest, the third commit in the class, and he never wavered from it while Wake stuck by him and his injury. Even as a junior, his get-off and his motor are pretty high level and a year or so just getting stronger will bode well for him and his development, especially getting to campus early.
