Kennard Swason redshirted in his first season but should be a key figure in the backfield, helping to open up running lanes throughout the year.

#47 Kennard Swanson – 6′ 248 lbs. – Redshirt freshman – Fullback – Lakeland, FL (Lake Gibson HS)

2013: Swanson, rated 3-stars in the 2013 recruiting class, took a redshirt in his first season as a Bull.

2014 Bull Rush Prediction: The fullback position is a key one in the Bulls offense, both in helping protect the quarterback and helping opening up running lanes for the backs. Swanson, a highly touted prep fullback, had a full year to learn and hit the weights, allowing him to mature into the positions. Fans are hoping he can become a Richard Kelly type of player, a bruising blocker that is also capable of making plays both running and even catching a pass thrown their way. Look for Swanson to get a lot of playing time in the backfield, especially in power formations. While he probably won’t light up the stat book, he could have a big impact throughout the year.
