The famous North American (NA) esports organization FaZe Clan have just added new strength to their pro team for Fortnite. FaZe Clan’s pro Fortnite team are already really strong, but they don’t say no with young new talents.

A few couples of hours ago on March 12, FaZe Clan gave out an official announcement that “Sway” – the famous 15-year-old Fortnite player and content creator – has been a member of FaZe Clan. This kid has already made a huge reputation for his name due to his talent.

The annoucement from FaZe Clan

Despite the fact that he is still extremely young, Sway has already got impressive statistics for himself in his content and social media channels. At this moment, Sway got pretty impressive fanbase in his social network: more than 488,000 subscribers on YouTube, 57,400 followers on Twitter, and 66,800 followers on Instagram.

Despite having a pretty strong fan base already, Sway will certainly gain more benefit from his move to FaZe Clan, especially when it comes to live-streaming on Twitch. A player from a pro team live streaming on Twitch will always receive more attention from the community.

You can check out some highlights of Sway’s gameplay below, and please keep in mind that this kid uses a controller on PC to play and create all of those highlights. Sway is not the first under-18-year-old pro player joining a pro team, and he certainly won't be the last.

While esports organizations might have been not very open to recruiting underage players in the past, things have changed dramatically now with Epic Games confirming that the minimum age for players to attend the Fortnite World Cup will be at least 13 years old.

This means we may see a lot more similar action of recruiting young member into their Fortnite roster in the near future, as the Fortnite World Cup qualifiers will take place April 13-June 16, with $1 million prize pool available each week.
