Brother Martin High School (LA) athlete Bruce Jordan-Swilling has had a strong senior season. Proof of that came when he was selected to play in the Army All-American game.
The Georgia Tech commit still hasn’t had the news of the selection sink in yet. “I feel honored to be selected for the game. It was something I’ve dreamed about for two years.” Bruce likes that he’s going to have a chance to play against some of the best recruits in the country.
Now that he has given his verbal to Tech, have schools stopped contacting him? Several schools have not given up on Bruce. “LSU, Oregon, and Southern Cal have started to really turn up the heat.” LSU could still receive an unofficial from Jordan-Swilling as it is close to home.
Bruce doesn’t feel that Tech has anything to worry about. “Georgia Tech is where I want to go and will go. I want to say that I played on the same field that my dad did and got my degree from there as well.” Bruce doesn’t feel he could let Coach Ted Roof or GT commit T.D. Roof down by going elsewhere. Bruce, Jaytlin Askew, Connor Hanson and the other Tech commits have already become close friends. “I can tell you that if signing day were this week, there is no doubt that it would be Georgia Tech."
While he can play both running back and linebacker, Bruce has gotten most of his reps at running back this season. "I’ve gone to my high school coach and asked if he would give me more reps at linebacker the remainder of the season.” Coach Roof feels that Bruce has a big upside at linebacker. “That is where my dad played while he was at Tech and I'd be honored to walk the same field and play the same position that he did.” Bruce will be getting reps at outside linebacker as Brother Martin moves towards the playoffs. That is where he will now be getting most of his reps.
As he nears the end of his senior season, Bruce has continued to talk to other recruits about joining him in the 2017 class. “I love the way this class is shaping up. I feel the future is extremely bright for Georgia Tech. I can't wait to see if the recruits we are working decide to come in with us this year."
