American Heritage S Xavier Swinton commits to Miami (Ohio) 

By Matt Porter

The football players in American Heritage’s senior class were loving the upper Midwest this weekend.

On the same day four-star running back Greg Bryant committed to Notre Dame, two-star safety Xavier Swinton gave his pledge to the Miami (Ohio) Redhawks. He chose them over Bowling Green, Colgate, FAU and Tulane.

Swinton (6-1, 180) becomes the second Stallions senior to commit to Miami-Ohio, joining linebacker Jake Giordano.

Both were part of a Heritage defense that allowed 8.08 points and 115.4 yards per game, both second-best in the area.
