Swoger is one of 30 players in South Dakota State’s recruiting class that includes five other Class of 2021 prospects from Arizona. South Dakota State is a Division FCS program.

The 6-foot-3 and 190-pound Swoger played primarily at quarterback for Cienega but will likely play receiver or defensive back in college because of his athleticism. As a junior last season, Swoger passed for 484 yards and rushed for 514 yards.
