Aidan Swanson - 3-star punter - Bradenton, Fla.

Committed since: 03/05/18.

Recruiter: Danny Pearman.

Listed size: 6-3 165

Early enrollee

Brings to Clemson: IMG Academy coach Kevin Wright called Swanson “a game changer.” “Aidan really is an incredible weapon,” Wright told the Herald Tribune this season. “He can flip the field with one swat of his leg and he has the ability to make sure the opponent is not able to return the kick. He’s really impressive with his directional punts and his ability to kick the ball inside the 10.”

Depth chart fit: Anyone who has paid attention to Clemson’s punting game this season knows just how wide-open that role could be come 2019. While showing flashes of talent, incumbent Will Spiers has struggled with consistency and Swanson can certainly challenge for a starting role if he brings that “flip the field” talent to the collegiate level.

Number to know: 42.3 - Swanson’s yards per punt average, landing seven of his 23 punts inside the 20 with a 4.26 hangtime average.
