From the New England Soccer Journal



Phillips Exeter midfielder Tyler Swanbeck commits to Wesleyan

After winning back-to-back Class C titles at Hebron Academy, Tyler Swanbeck set out for a postgraduate year at Phillips Exeter.

His goal? Find a college soccer home, preferably one where the 2017-18 United Soccer Coaches Scholar All-America Player of the Year would continue to be challenged on and off the field.

Mission accomplished for the 19-year-old midfielder. Earlier this week, Swanbeck committed to Wesleyan, a Division 3 program that plays in the national-renowned NESCAC.

Im really excited for this, Swanbeck said. I had those (Division 1) aspirations, but going to this league and conference, the quality of play isnt going to drop off at all. If anything, Ill be challenged every week.



As Swanbeck said, he hoped to play D1 soccer and made no secret of it. He had possibilities, too.

Before heading to Exeter, Swanbeck planned to join Colgate in 2019. He even reclassified, but head coach Erik Ronning went in another direction. Earlier this fall, Vermont also had serious interest only for the financial package not to work out.

Here is a link to the Siena Men's Soccer post from January 2019 announcing that Tyler Swanbeck (and two others) had enrolled at Siena for the 2019 Spring semester:  https://sienasaints.com/news/2019/1/18/mens-soccer-adds-three-mid-year-enrollees-to-roster.aspx.

Interesting.  Looks like he got a good financial package and was looking to D1 all along.  Academically those schools aren't on par.  Good luck to him.

No doubt.  In terms of SAT scores, the 75th percentile at Siena is 50 points below the 25th percentile at Wesleyan.
