Top 5 kicker in the South and Scout three-star Mitchell Wasson is walking-on at Alabama

Alabama landed a Peach State prospect on the even of national signing day in three-star kicker Mitchell Wasson.

National champion kicker Adam Griffith returns to Tuscaloosa for one more year at Alabama but the Crimson Tide may have found his replacement on Tuesday night. 

Three-star Marietta (Ga.) Lassiter kicker Mitchell Wasson, who visited Tuscaloosa on Saturday, elected to accept a preferred walk-on offer from the program over similar offers from Georgia and Florida

Admittedly struggling with the stressful decision, the senior pushed his decision date back after the weekend until he came to a point Tuesday. 

"It's the best football program in the country," Wasson said. "There's great coaches, and it has always been my dream and goal school to play for."

Informing special teams coordinator Bobby Williams over the phone, UA's newest kicker had come full circle since participating in UA's kicking camp over the summer (above, far left). 

Wasson expects to compete for a scholarship early in his college career.
