Young backer would love to play for national champs

Kevin Swint, a 2020 outside-linebacker is only a freshman, yet he already looks like he could be coming out in the 2018 class. The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder already possesses the size and length that colleges look for in a rangy linebacker.

While Swint has not received an offer from Clemson at this time, he already has several big-time schools that have either offered him or shown a lot of interest.

“Memphis, Indiana, Wake Forest, Missouri, those our the schools I have gotten offered from and who are talking to me,” Swint said to The Clemson Insider.

While all of these schools have stood out to Swint for offering him this early in the process, a Clemson offer could be a game changer.

“It would mean a lot,” he said. “They’re a great program and I would love to play for the best.”

The Carrollton (Ga.) prospect visited Clemson last season for the N.C. State game, but said he plans on coming back to see the new facility soon.

“I’m supposed to go to the Clemson summer camp,” he said. “Hopefully, I can before then.”

Swint says several things stood out to him about Clemson during his last visit to Death Valley.

“It’s a great atmosphere, the stadium is always rocking and they treat you like they have known you for years,” he said. “The thing that stands out to me is that Clemson is based off family. They do it for each other and that’s how you get the job done.”

Swint said he is looking to improving his game in a couple of different ways going into his second season on the varsity squad.

“I’m looking to improve on my covering skills,” he said. “And leading my defense more than I did my previous year as a freshman.”

Swint believes he can bring some valuable tools with him to Death Valley if Clemson gives him an offer.

“I could bring in great leadership and a relentless attitude to win, and bring home many more national championships,” he said.
