WKU goes for two over the weekend

Western Kentucky hit it big over the weekend, nabbing a couple of talented forwards in Jordan Swing and William Green.
Swing, a 6-foot-6, 200-pound small forward from Vestavia Hills (Ala.) High School elected Western Kentucky over Belmont, Bradley, Arkansas State and Murray State according to his travel team coach Jonathan Henderson of the Nashville Celtics.
"Ultimately Jordan was really impressed with the facilities, and the coaching staff made him a priority," said Henderson. "He is a very skilled player with good athleticism and the ability to score off the dribble or from three."
A 6-foot-6, 180-pound power forward from Orlando (Fla.) Olympia High School, Green chose the Hilltoppers over Ohio and St. Louis.
"I had a great visit to Western Kentucky," said Green. "I felt very comfortable with the entire coaching staff and their players. It was a tough decision, but in the end I really felt it was the best fit for me."
