The Texas Longhorns have 4 recruits on campus enrolled in spring semester, one of those recruits is Geoff Swaim.
Geoff Swaim is a tight end from Butte community college in Oroville, California. He is 6’5″ and 250 pounds. He is listed as a 3 star by Rivals and 247 sports. He is coming into to add some much needed depth at tight end. With the loss of Durham Smythe to Notre Dame, the Longhorns needed tight ends with the departure of DJ Grant and Barrett Matthews.
While Major Applewhite is looking to go to a more spread out attack, you still need tall and strong tight ends to catch passes over the middle. Also, a strong goal line formation needs a good blocking tight end as well as one that can catch passes consistently off of playaction. I think Geoff will be a solid contributor to the Longhorns on offense, even if he isn’t out there very often.
The Texas Longhorns are anticipating the signatures of 11 men today to go along with 15 total signees for the 2012 Football Recruiting Class.
