ESPN 100 center Caleb Swanigan committed to Michigan State on Friday over finalists California and Duke.
Why he committed: Swanigan, ranked No. 8 in the class, developed a strong bond and trust with Spartans coach Tom Izzo. Swanigan believes that he also plays well with fellow McDonald's All American Deyonta Davis. "Coach Izzo cares about me as a person and player and he always wins. and me and Deyonta Davis play well together in AAU and we can really help each other,” Swanigan said.
Swanigan, ranked No. 8 in the ESPN 100, is a load to handle in the post and should be an immediate contributor for the Spartans.
