Evaluator: Brandon Clay
Location: Nike Elite 100 Camp (St. Louis, Mo.)

Swider is a solid forward option. I envision him as a stretch 4 at the next level capable of making shots in the trail spot. In that regard, he’s a specialist.

Evaluator: Jonathan Hemingway
Location: Nike Elite 100 Camp (St. Louis, Mo.)

Swider is a bigger wing who plays his role. He has a good release from beyond the arc. However, the strength of his game centers around his ability to do multiple things.

Swider is a shooter. He has nice size and enough mobility to play either wing position. He did a nice job of finishing in transition today.

Date: May 24, 2016
Evaluator: Brandon Clay
Location: Nike EYBL Session IV (Atlanta, Ga.)

Swider is a shooter with good size on the perimeter. He’s averaging right at 10 points a game while shooting 40% from 3-point range. He’s got a moxy to take the open shot anytime he has a clean look.
