Former Villanova forward Cole Swider finds a new college home

Cole Swider, a 6'9 forward who spent the last three years at Villanova, has found a new college home: He will continue his playing career at Syracuse. Swider is a former Top 50 prospect who averaged 5.2 points per game on a deep Villanova squad, but also hit over 40 percent from behind the three-point arc.


He will bring elite shooting to a Syracuse squad that already has plenty with Buddy Boeheim and Joe Girard heading into the 2021-2022 season.
