Alabama Kicker/Punter Announces Mid-Season Decision To Transfer

Alabama Football.

The Alabama football team is losing one of its players prior to the stretch run of the 2022 season.

Redshirt junior punter and kicker Jack Martin announced on Twitter that he has entered the NCAA transfer portal and will seek to play elsewhere for his final two seasons of eligibility.

Martin, a walk-on, played sparingly during his two seasons at Alabama. He kicked off five times last season and five times this year and made his lone field goal attempt.

Martin started his college career at Troy before transferring to Alabama prior to the 2021 season.

He will not have to sit out a year before playing at his new school because he is set to graduate in December.

Martin made the decision to transfer during Alabama's bye last week. The Crimson Tide will face a marquee matchup with rival LSU on Saturday.
