    Grad Transfer Recruiting

    Well, I hope it's a recruiting topic.

    Do we track whether BAMA is interested in or targeting any specific grad transfers? Most specifically interested in punters/kickers but maybe could be help at TE or ILB.

    we are looking at a potential punter grad transfer whose name escapes me at the moment. it does appear to be dependent if we miss on multiple players on NSD.

    Alabama to add Punter Corliss Waitman?

    Somewhat surprised Saban would take a punter since Bernier says he wants to come back for his senior year.

    I think it is very contingent on missing some key guys...doesn't really look like that will happen.

    Bernier is going to get one or more punts blocked if he looks next year the way he did this past season. He holds the ball a long time. Of course, coaching may help. I think this guy from South is pretty good.

    Don't think it really matters because Reichard from Hoover is poised to take over one or both kicker positions - https://www.tidefans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=298023

    If we take this kid, then where that leave for Delong? It would mean he is not progressing as one would hope. Delong can get his job back if he shows consistency this spring.

    I was really hopeful with Reichard coming in until I read a synopsis on him that went something like 'good kicker that specializes in kickoffs but could be pressed into service as a place kicker if needed'. I'd feel better if we had someone else to compete with him and our current kicker.

    Not sure about that. He has been money through the uprights for the Bucs.
