Alabama Crimson Tide kicker Will Reichard has apparently had a change of heart.
Just a week after announcing his plans to enter the NFL Draft, Reichhardt informed the college football world on Tuesday that he will be returning to the Tide next season.
Reichard, a four-year member of the Alabama Football Program and a three-year starter, will use the last year of his college eligibility in 2023.
Reichard has provided consistent place kicks for Crimson Tide during his four years with the team.
After a freshman campaign with 4 of 7 (57.1%) field goal attempts, Reichard made 58 of his next 68 field goal attempts.
In addition, the tide kicker attempted extra points 240 of 242 (99.2%) during his time in Tuscaloosa.
Speaking to the media ahead of the Sugar Bowl game against Kansas State University in Alabama in late December, Reichhardt said of his initial decision to turn pro:
“I wasn’t sure for a really long time, but after talking it over with friends, family, and a few people I trusted, I decided to go ahead and give it a try,” Reichhardt said. bama online Charlie Potter last week.
Apparently, that uncertainty reappeared in the days after Alabama’s 45-20 Sugar Bowl win over Kansas State.
Reichhardt and the Crimson Tide will head home to Middle Tennessee State in the 2023 season.
