Not many prospects in all of high school basketball have the size, strength, and skill of Caleb Swanigan on the low block, and the 2016 prospect proved during a very busy stretch in June.

It has been a busy month of June for class of 2016 center Caleb Swanigan. The Fort Wayne (Ind) Homestead product participated in the Nike Elite 100, and then came back and went to the NBPA Top 100 Camp and competed as one of the youngest kids at the camp.

For the 6-foot-7 and 280 pound Swanigan, it was an honor to be a 2016 prospect at the NBPA Camp, and he wanted to show he belonged.

“It is challenging being here and trying to prove yourself, but to finally get here is an achievement,” said Swanigan. “You want to soak up the moment but at the same time continue to work hard.”

Over the last few years Swanigan has worked very hard to improve his body and continue to get in better shape, he says it has just been basic hard work.

“I am just working out, running, watching what I eat, it is nothing tricky,” said Swanigan. “It is just basic working out and losing weight.”

Already a handful of schools are showing Swanigan attention on the recruiting trail.

“It has all kind of been even, but we have heard from Ohio State, Purdue, Michigan State, Indiana and I went to Michigan, and that is about it,” noted Swanigan.

At the Michigan Camp Swanigan didn’t get to see a ton, but he did get to familiarize himself with the campus.

“I thought the camp was good,” said Swanigan. “We got to see the facilities but that was about it because of the rules.”

Swanigan will next participate at the Purdue team camp with his high school team before again ramping things up with Spiece Indy Heat during the month of July.

Also given his size, strength, and athleticism, Swanigan is an excellent football prospect. While he makes it clear he loves basketball, Swanigan has no intention of giving up football.

“I plan on playing football the rest of my high school career,” said Swanigan. “I don’t know which sport I will choose, we will just see what happens.”
