In continuation of recapping each Georgia Tech players’ season from 2019, we look at No.3, defensive back Tre Swilling who put together a strong redshirt sophomore campaign.
The son of Georgia Tech legend Pat Swilling, Tre continues to build his own legacy on The Flats alongside his brother Bruce Jordan-Swilling. In 2019, Tre put together a fantastic redshirt sophomore season.
The New Orleans native saw himself become one of the top cornerbacks in the ACC in 2019, racking up 23 tackles, two tackles for a loss, one interception, and one fumble recovery. He also recorded 10 passes defended which ranked among the highest in the ACC.

Swilling’s best games of the season came against North Carolina and North Carolina State. Against the Tar Heels, Swilling recorded five tackles while against the Wolfpack, he totaled four tackles. Other notable games included his performances against the Miami Hurricanes and Virginia Cavaliers.
After racking up his impressive stat line, Swilling earned an All-ACC honorable mention for his performance in 2019.
Swilling is currently set to return in 2020 for the Yellow Jackets and once again should be a starting corner for the Yellow Jackets. Returning with plenty of experience, Swilling should be a big asset for the Yellow Jackets in the secondary next season should he continue to progress and develop.
While the Yellow Jackets season is over, the coaching staff will look to put the finishing touches on the 2020 recruiting class. The early signing period is set to begin next Wednesday, December 18th, before putting any finishing touches on the class prior to the traditional February signing period.
