Elite LB commits to Clemson

Elite Junior Day brought in its first major impact with a commitment from four-star linebacker Kevin Swint out of Carrollton, Georgia.

Swint is rated as high as the No. 4 outside linebacker in the nation and the No. 81 prospect overall (ESPN).

"I believe that this beautiful place will help me pursue my dreams in football as well as academically," Swint posted in his announcement. "I had to sit back and actually think about a school that would help me down the road, 40 to 50 years from now, Coach Swinney and the whole coaching staff has given me the utmost respect just as well as I have given them, it was a feeling that I could not push away, everything that has been told to me has been true and I've seen it with my own two eyes."

He posted 13 tackles for loss (3.5) with 60 total tackles, five pass breakups and two caused fumbles as a junior. He has averaged 71 tackles per season at Carrollton with 65 coming for loss.

Swint held upwards of 20 Power 5 offers, including Alabama, Georgia, Auburn, Florida, LSU, Ohio State and Notre Dame. Swint has been sold on Brent Venables' scheme for some time.

"Coach Venables, what he's doing right now, he's taking over the defensive game on the college level," Swint told TigerNet before the visit Saturday. "Why wouldn't you want to go to a team that's locking people down? They held Alabama to like 15 or 17 points. Why wouldn't you want to get coached by a guy like him?"

“The first thing I think about it is I think they're building a dynasty with Dabo (Swinney). He recruits a great

class. He doesn't really have a whole bunch of four and five stars. He recruits the guys that he

knows are going to get the job done. That's really how I think about Clemson.”

He is the sixth commit in Clemson's 2020 class, joining fellow four-star defenders in DT Demonte Capehart (No. 49 in 247Sports Composite overall) and ILB Sergio Allen (136). Four-star DT Tre Williams (96) committed later on Saturday for a seventh 2020 pledge to move the Tigers up to fourth in the 247Sports 2020 team rankings.
