In a surprising turn of events, Alabama kicker Will Reichard has changed his mind about his future plans for the 2023 season.
After initially stating that he would enter the 2023 NFL Draft and accepting his invitation to the Senior Bowl, Reichard posted on social media that he had decided to return to Alabama.
“First I would like to thank everyone who has helped me along my journey and that includes my family, friends, teammates and coaches,” Reichard said in his statement.
“The past four years I’ve been part of the best program in college football, and I have loved every second of it. I can’t thank my coaches and teammates at the University of Alabama enough for their support and the brotherhood we have built along the way.
“After much prayer and guidance, I realized that I wasn’t ready to step away from Alabama football and the college experience. I have decided to take advantage of my final year of eligibility and tee it up with my Crimson Tide teammates one more time in 2023. I can’t wait to get back to work as we build toward the 2023 season.
“Thanks and Roll Tide!”
Reichard, who will be entering his fifth season with the Crimson Tide mas made 62-of-75 field goal attempts in his career and is 240-of-242 on extra points.
