Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney met with the media Tuesday and shared some excellent news about a current Tiger.
According to Swinney, starting punter Aidan Swanson, who is a redshirt senior, will return to Clemson for another season. It will be a sixth year as a Tiger for Swanson, who will be using his COVID year of eligibility.
“He’s coming back… He’s fallen in love with it,” said Swinney.
Outstanding news for the program and Tigers fans: Swanson has been awesome for the program as a punter. So far this season, Swanson is averaging 44 yards per punt, landing 19 of his 49 punts inside the 20-yard line. In Clemson’s win over Notre Dame, he earned ACC Specialist of the Week and Ray Guy Award “Ray’s 8” honors.
Swanson will be welcomed back with open arms.
