Basketball player Swoope enters NFL draft
Canes forward declares for NFL
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Canes basketball player Erik Swoope is going to take a shot at the NFL.
Swoope made the announcement on his twitter page on Tuesday.
The 6-5, 220 pound power forward never played a down for the University of Miami football team.
He also didn't play football in high school.
Swoope is trying to follow in the footsteps of Jimmy Graham.
Graham was a Canes basketball player who ended up being a prominent NFL tight end.
