D'Andre Swift discusses his future plans, availability for Georgia's bowl game
We will never know now Georgia would have fared against LSU in the 2019 SEC Championship Game with a healthy D’Andre Swift, as the junior Bulldog running back entered the game with a banged-up shoulder that clearly limited his availability in the game.
By the end of the game, Swift had only two carries for 13 yards in Georgia’s 37-10 loss to LSU.
Now the biggest question mark for Swift centers around two big questions — does he plan to turn pro early and forgo his senior season in Athens and will he play in Georgia’s bowl game, if that’s the way he’s leaning?
Swift will undoubtedly be among the top running back prospects in the 2020 NFL Draft, if not the No. 1 running back prospect, by the time the upcoming draft arrives this spring.
Considering all that he has at stake, Swift was asked about his future with his big decision on the draft pending.
“I’m not really worried about that right now. I’m worried about getting my shoulder right, enjoying the time with my teammates right now,” Swift said after the game in a YouTube video shared by DawgPost.
The junior running back was also asked if he had plans to play in Georgia’s bowl game, provided he is healthy enough to play.
“Yeah, hopefully,” Swift answered.
Once again, Swift was asked about if he plans to play this postseason and how much thought he has put into that decision.
“Not right now. I’m really just focused on keeping the team’s head high, making sure everyone’s okay,” Swift answered. “Really just focused on my treatment right now – on my shoulder.”
Based on his response, Swift’s focus will entirely shift on getting back to 100 percent. Once that happens, then he’ll make a decision on his future in Athens and the upcoming postseason.
