Career Summary

Option declined following 2017 season.

One of Columbus' Homegrown Players, this midfielder hasn't had a chance to show his stuff on a MLS field quite yet. But with his pedigree, it would be no shock to see him get his chance in 2017.

INTERNATIONAL: As a consensus top-five recruit in the high school class of 2016, the 17-year-old has represented United States' youth teams on several occasions, including wearing the captain's armband for the U-18 team in a friendly against Canada in April. Swanson received his first-ever call-up by the U.S. U-20s on August 28, 2015 ahead of a training camp in Serbia.
