Hoover kicker Will Reichard commits to Alabama
HOOVER, Ala. —
Alabama football is not going to let one of the nation's top kicking recruits leave the area.
Hoover's Will Reichard committed to the Crimson Tide, announcing his decision on Twitter:
Reichard is the nation's second ranked kicker in the Class of 2019, according to 247Sports recruiting website.
Reichard's kicking coach is Chris Sailer, who is considered by many to be one of the top instructor's at the position. Sailer has told people, he believes Reichard could hold his own in an NFL camp, even right now before his senior year of high school.
In 2017, Reichard was primarily used as a punter and on kickoffs. He made his only field goal attempt, a 32-yard kick against Vestavia Hills.
