Newest commit to Swinney: I refuse to touch Howard's Rock until I earn the right

It’s a tradition for priority prospects to visit the top of Clemson’s famous Hill and take a picture with Howard’s Rock, and when head coach Dabo Swinney is standing there with an invitation, most recruits don’t hesitate on the photo op. Robert Gunn is different. He wants to earn the right to touch the stone that Frank Howard helped make famous.

Gunn is the 2022 specialist who committed to the Tigers Monday evening, giving Swinney a dynamic weapon to use on field goals and kickoffs. Gunn visited for Clemson’s high school camp last week and then was asked to hang around for the Elite Retreat by Swinney.
