There’s good news for Homestead’s Caleb Swanigan and possibly more good news.
The senior boys basketball standout made the USA Basketball U17 team Tuesday. Swanigan, who holds several big-time Division I scholarship offers, will be part of the 12-player team that will travel to Dubai for the World Championships in August.
The 2014 FIBA U17 World Championship will be Aug. 8 to 16 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The two-time defending U17 champion United States opens preliminary play against Greece on Aug. 8.
Swanigan might also be getting a new point guard in Junior All-Star Jordan Geist. According to a Twitter post from Homestead senior center/forward Dana Batt and media reports, Geist will transfer from Penn to Homestead.
