Swilling knows Tech can be great

Brother Martin HS (LA.) defensive back Tre Swilling took the next step to realizing his dream of playing college football at Georgia Tech.  Swilling took his official visit to Georgia Tech this past weekend. Tre was a big hit with the coaches and other recruits. 


The visit showed Tre how much the coaches wanted him at Tech. “It was an awesome time.”  

Tech safety Christian Campbell hosted Tre on the visit. Like Tre, Christian is also from Louisiana. The two hit it off and talked about playing time next season. “I just have to go in and work hard to get on the field early.” Tre feels he’s walking into the perfect situation. “I’ll be at the school I want to play for, the school my dad played for, and I’ll have a chance to get playing time as a freshman.  Yes, I am excited about my situation.”

The coaches are happy with the way the 2017 class is shaping up and they want Tre to continue working hard to recruit other players to come with him to Tech.  “We also talked about how I will be used and that has me ready to get there.  June 15th is our check in date and it can’t get here fast enough for me.”

Defensive lineman Antwan Owens was one of the uncommitted recruits that Tre focused on over the weekend. “I told him that we need a big war daddy on the edge.” Tre also spent time with Michael Smith, Aliki Vimahi, and Jordan Ponchez-Mason. “If we can get Vimahi, Smith, Owens and others visiting the next two weeks, we will have a great class.” Tre is excited about were the program is headed and he’ll be talking to some additional unnamed recruits about coming to Tech.  

As was the case with the other recruits visiting last weekend, hanging out with the players and talking about building something special was the highlight of the trip for Tre. “The ACC is an elite conference and there is no reason why we can’t win another national championship.”

Tre watched Tech finish the 2016 season with a 9-4 record. He also watched them defeat three SEC schools. That is the reason for Tre’s excitement. “We have some playmakers here already and some more coming in this summer. We aren’t letting it go to our heads. We know we can be great again.”
