Player Evaluations:

Date: July 2020
Location: Brandon Clay Training Academy (Anderson, Indiana)
Evaluator: Brandon Clay

Swanson has fantastic size and skill in the frontcourt. She is a fantastic young post prospect with good hands and feet already. She played against two of the best post prospects in the country in Faith Carson and Kyra Oldacre not giving either ground. That’s pretty impressive for a kid who hasn’t entered high school yet. Swanson will add physical strength in due time but the foundation is solid.

Swanson is a post player with size, skill and still plenty of room to develop. Her ability to affect the game around the rim by blocking shots and grabbing rebounds immediately makes her an asset for any team. However, she demonstrated that she can step away from the basket and hit 3-point shots as well too. Her ball skill, while not polished, is impressive for a kid her size and age. She is still figuring the game out and learning how to affect consistently. Once she gets that physical confidence and the needed experience, we expect Swanson to be one of the Midwest’s top post players in her class. – Coach Hemi
