Syracuse, New York – Cole Swider announced his decision to move from Villanova to Syracuse.
Swider, Jr. 6 feet-9, made the announcement on his Twitter page.
Although junior, Swider will be eligible for two years due to the NCAA’s decision to give all winter sports athletes an additional year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Swider was a four-star potential in the 201
After announcing his decision to leave Villanova, Swider announced that he had received renewed interest from Syracuse, along with Rutgers, Indiana, Florida and Arizona.
Last season, Swider averaged 18.8 minutes, 5.7 points and 2.8 rebounds per game. He made 40.2 percent of his attempts from a range of 3 points.
Swider is the second player Syracuse has added to its 2021-22 roster through the NCAA transfer portal.
Earlier this week, the transfer of Market Simir Thorens, a 6-meter security guard, announced his decision to attend Syracuse. Thorens is a native of Syracuse who attended the Syracuse Academy of Sciences.
Three players announced that Syracuse has decided to enter the portal. These include: second-rate striker Robert Braswell, freshman in a red shirt John Ball Ajak and freshman’s keeper Kadari Richmond.
