Homestead High School will apparently not have Caleb Swanigan around as long as planned.

Swanigan, the Spartans' standout 6-foot-8 junior center, announced via Twitter he would be reclassifying, taking extra classes in the summer and fall in order to graduate next spring, a year ahead of time.

“I have reclassified to the 2015 class a lot of extra schoolwork but defiantly (sic) worth it,” Swanigan tweeted.

Swanigan averaged 20 points and 12 rebounds last season for the Spartans, and has slimmed down for the AAU season.

A third-team All-State selection as a sophomore, he's lost 15 pounds, which has done nothing to slow the offers that come his way from around the country.

Notre Dame, Louisville, UCLA, Iowa and Penn State recently extended offers to Swanigan, who already had gotten offers from Indiana, Michigan State, Georgetown and Tennessee. He's also received interest, but no offers as yet, from Kentucky, Ohio State and Purdue.
