Bruce Jordan-Swilling’s father was one of the greatest football players in Georgia Tech history. Could the Class of 2017 running back end up playing for his father’s rival school?
UGA extended an offer to the four-star running back on Thursday night.
“Very excited to receive my 19th offer from Georgia,” Jordan-Swilling tweeted out.
The 6-foot, 215-pound running back is son of former New Orleans Saints linebacker Patrick Swilling. The elder Swilling was an All-America linebacker at Georgia Tech. He played 12 seasons in the NFL, and was named to the Pro Bowl five times. He was also NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 1991.
Back to his son, Bruce: As a junior in 2015, Jordan-Swilling made the switch from linebacker to running back, and is rated as the No. 5 prospect in the state of Louisiana.
The Brother Martin High School (New Orleans) product also holds offers from six other SEC schools, including LSU, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Tennessee and Texas A&M.
Last month, Jordan-Swilling and his brother, four-star cornerback Tre Swilling, took unofficial visits to both Alabama and their father’s alma mater, Tech.
The two are expected to attend the same college.
