According to Lindsay Brauner of Rivals.com, Wildcats head coach John Calipari and his staff are pushing hard to sign Swanigan, who must sign a letter of intent by May 20, but Swanigan is more interested in other programs.
For those wondering re Kentucky/Swanigan:source says Calipari&staff heavily making efforts to get him but Swanigan more interested elsewhere

The McDonald’s All-American from Fort Wayne, Indiana is currently the No. 9 player in the ESPN Hot 100 and has great low post size at 6’8″, 275 pounds. His playing style and overall skill set aren’t ideal for Calipari’s dribble-drive offense, so he is more likely to commit to a program like California or Purdue.
Campus Sports will update Swanigan’s decision as more details become available.
