He excelled as a kicker and punt at St. Rita High School, but Talty will handle the Crimson Tide’s kicking duties after Reichard departs. The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder was one of the highest-rated prospects from Chris Sailer’s Kicking and Punting Camp.

He placed as the No. 2 kicker in the nation from the camp and made 17 of 21 field goals in his senior season at Rita, including a 51-yard attempt. He made 36 PAT tries, earning him recognition as a finalist for the 2022 Chris Sailer Award. 

The winner of the award will be announced on Jan. 14.
