Jared Swopshire will transfer to Northwestern University for his final year of eligibility. C.L. Brown of the Courier-Journal broke the story earlier this afternoon. Below is an excerpt. Teddy Swopshire said Northwestern was the only school his son visited after they researched rosters and schools to figure out a good fit from a basketball and academic perspective. Jared Swopshire averaged 3.3 points and 2.8 rebounds in 39 games as a reserve for the Cards this season. “The opportunity is there for him to start,” Teddy Swopshire said. “He’s replacing (John) Shurna, so that’s the style he’s going for from an offensive and a playing style standpoint.” There’s an added bonus for playing in Chicago for Jared Swopshire. His twin sisters Jasmine and Janna are sophomore forwards at Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I think this is a great fit for Swop and wish him the absolute best. The entire Swopshire family has been an absolute class act throughout this entire situation. Northwestern finished 19-14 last
