He was clocked at 22 miles per hour, displaying strong footwork and acceleration. As a Chicago (Ill.) native, Talty was the No. 2 kicker in the nation via Chris Sailer Kicking.

His speed could help if the Tide has another potential “Kick 6” situation, and Talty would have the legs to run down the opponent.
