He currently does not have a single offer. However, one team that could show serious interest in Swanton is the Wisconsin Badgers.

Swanton is a 6’0″, 250 pound offensive guard from De Forest, Wisconsin. He is currently a sophomore at De Forest High School.

The De Forest Norskies made it to the Division 2 Wisconsin State Playoffs.

They lost to Waunakee High School, 7-34, in their second round game.
