Clemson offered one of the top-rated 2019 punters after a weekend Junior Day visit.
IMG Academy punter Aidan Swanson, rated as the No. 1 2019 punter by Kornblue kicking and the No. 9 by Kohl's kicking, announced the offer on Monday.
"I am humbled and blessed to receive a full scholarship offer from Clemson University!" Swanson posted on Twitter.
Swanson had an offer as a preferred walk-on at Clemson and a full scholarship offer from Nebraska previously.
"Aidan is a left-footed class of 2019 punter/kicker out of IMG Academy in Florida," Swanson's profile reads on Kornblue kicking. "Aidan has been at or near the top of our Fab 50 Rankings in his class for several years as a punter and kicker. He is currently the Fab 50’s #1 nationally ranked punter in the class of 2019. At our Summer 2017 Kornblue Kicking Showcase, Aidan earned Punting Champion honors.
"His strengths are punting and kickoffs, but he is a strong FG kicker as well. FBS coaches have been and will continue to pursue this top level prospect."
Swanson also visited campus for the Georgia Tech and Citadel games last season.
Absolutely unreal and incredible visit at Clemson tonight! What a great experience! Looking forward to what the future holds... pic.twitter.com/2agrrjPEwW— Aidan Swanson (@a_swanson39) October 29, 2017
