Recruiting Interview: RB/LB Bruce Jordan-Swilling, Brother Martin High School
by Jace LeJeune
Brother Martin RB/LB Bruce Jordan-Swilling is arguably the best high school football player in the state of Louisiana and one of the best recruits in the entire country. For all the New Orleans Saints football fans, Bruce is the son of future hall of fame linebacker Pat Swilling, who played seven seasons with the New Orleans Saints and had five Pro Bowls in his career. Bruce Jordan-Swilling is looking to build his own legacy and has impressed a lot of high school football fans since he first started for the Crusaders as a sophomore. Swilling has all the physical tools to be a great football player like his father. Last year, Swilling ran for over 2,000 yards and a ridiculous 35 touchdowns in an offense which was record setting at Brother Martin. This year, the team loses a lot of D-I offensive players but return a lot as well with Swilling and Houston Commit Jeremy Singleton. Swilling is not just a running back. He also plays linebacker for the team a lot of times and could play that position at the next level. Our own recruiting guru Lee Brecheen thinks that he is the best player out of high school since somebody named Leonard Fournette. “Bruce Jordan-Swilling is the best football player in Louisiana along with Tyler Shelvin (Notre Dame).” Brecheen said. “Swilling has Leonard Fournette type ability and can play either RB or LB for his team. He is faster and stronger than anybody else on the field.” Not only is he compared to Fournette because of his physical abilities but he is humble on and off the field like him as well. Bruce Jordan-Swilling has it all. He has the physical tools, the pedigree, amazing stats, and all the D-1 schools are looking at him. There is one thing that Swilling wants to get done on his checklist and that is bring Brother Martin a state championship. It will take a special player to help carry a team to the dome and luckily, Bruce Jordan-Swilling is that player.
