Clemson struggled to flip the field via the punt last season but had the talent on defense to carry an extra load with a short field. This season, a younger Tiger defense may need some help from the punters.
Junior Will Spiers averaged 39.7 yards per punt last season, which ranked 88 in the FBS for average yards per punt. In fall camp, Spiers faced challenges from senior Steven Sawicki and freshman Aidan Swanson to take his place at punter.
Throughout fall camp Spiers has been pushed by his competitors after finishing the spring on top of the depth chart.
