Caleb Swanigan, the 6-foot-8 power forward out of Fort Wayne (IN) Homestead, will visit Kentucky this weekend.
Kentucky’s NBA combine will be televised Friday on ESPNU from 3-5 EST, and all 30 NBA teams are invited.
Swanigan and his guardian, Roosevelt Barnes, will arrive Friday night and attend Saturday’s practice, Barnes told SNY.tv.
Swanigan has no other visits planned, but Barnes said they “definitely” plan to get to Chicago State for a game at some point.
Swanigan averaged 15.2 points and 11.9 rebounds this summer on the Nike EYBL circuit, leading the campaign in rebounding. He also won a gold medal with the USA U17 team at the World Championship in Dubai in August.
He has hosted a slew of schools for home visits, including Kentucky, Arizona, UCLA, Michigan State, Pittsburgh, Auburn, Kansas State, Missouri, N.C. State, Purdue, Cal and New Mexico.
Swanigan is among the many high-profile 2015 recruits who plans to sign late.
