D’Andre Swift has scored his share of touchdowns on the football field and won his share of races in track and field. The Philadelphia 5-star prospect, in addition to being the top-ranked prospect out of Pennsylvania for the 2017 class, also is the class’ top-ranked all-purpose back, according to 247Sports’ Composite rankings.
Swift won his first track race, the 100-meter dash, competing in club track for Philadelphia-based The Athlete’s Academy. Since then, the success stories haven’t stopped—in football and track.
“I’ve watched The Opening every year,” Swift said. “When I got the call, I was so ecstatic, so happy. There is great competition there, and I’m looking to compete and put up great numbers, testing wise. Plus, I’m ready to meet all the great athletes from all over the country.”
