Uncommitted Spotlight: Jump In Interest Follows Jump In Velo For Swensen

Dylan Swensen RHP / 3B / Gahanna Lincoln, OH / 2019

GAHANNA - The saying a dime a dozen seemed to fit.

Last summer Dylan Swensen was a right-hander throwing 80 miles an hour. His aspirations to play college baseball were modest at best.

“Five months ago nobody was texting or following me,” the Gahanna Lincoln junior said. “I always wanted to play in college but when you’re throwing 80 and a righty you’re not going to go to any dream college.”

Now Wright State and Miami have reached out to the 6-3 195-pounder. Columbia, Dartmouth and Charleston are others that have been in contact.

The reason?

Swensen hit 88 at a combine in Indianapolis.

“Credit goes to the Marlins coaches and just working harder,” Swensen said in reference to his summer team, pitching coach Justin Miller in particular. “Before this year I never thought I’d be able to do this and now with lifting and Driveline I’m showing I can do it.”
