|Daily Swain-2023 Columbus|
We have recently highlighted several 2023 standouts from Northwest and Northeast Ohio, but this time we would like to turn the focus on Central Ohio. One of Columbus’ emerging young talents is Dailyn Swain (5’6/PG/Columbus/2023), who started to make some noise on the statewide scene last season. He first caught our attention with his standout performance at the fall session of the Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase in September, where he played his way into the all-star game. In addition, Swain logged in an all-star performance at the NEO event last year.
Although we only selected Swain as Ninth Team All-Ohio, we did have the opportunity to extend Swain a late invitation to play in the prestigious Ohio North vs South All-Star game. With what we’ve seen and heard recently, Swian should finish higher in 2017 and has a chance to crack the top 10 in our player rankings going forward.
Although we’ve seen very little of Swain, we know he’s a shifty and deceptive PG who excels at getting to the rim. In addition, because of his tight handle and quickness, Swain is difficult to stay in front of defensively. According to Jason Dawson, Head coach of Swain’s Dose-Ohio Hoopsters travel team, Swain “is a scoring guard, who does a little bit of everything. [Swain] is long lanky and plays the passing lanes well,” said Dawson. In addition, last summer, Swain averaged 10-15 points per game, and was one of the leaders on Dawson’s squad. We look forward to getting get a closer look at Swain at our March 4th elite showcase.
