The Brophy Prep standout is 6-foot-4-inches and 282 pounds. Swanson played in 10 games combined during his sophomore and junior years at Brophy Prep before playing in 11 of its 12 games his senior year.

ASU brings home talent

ASU head coach Kenny Dillingham has already done an amazing job in recruiting this offseason and now fans are beginning to see talented players return to home to play in Tempe.

Dillingham made it a point of emphasis that he wanted to keep talented players in Tempe. It takes time to build a reputation for players to want to stay in Tempe to continue their football careers. But in just his second offseason, Dillingham is seeing progress on that goal.
