Alabama adds Ole Miss K as grad transfer


Alabama has added former Ole Miss kicker Andy Pappanastos as a graduate transfer, according to what Pappanastos told local NBC affiliate WSFA.

Originally from Montgomery, Pappanastos’ time at Ole Miss was tumultuous, to say the least. After grayshirting AND redshirting, he saw limited action for the Rebels and attempted only nine point-after attempts, of which he made eight, and just one field goal that he missed against Presbyterian in 2014.

As a result, Pappanastos will have two years of eligibility remaining when he suits up for the Crimson Tide this year. The only wrinkle in the plan is that Alabama already has Adam Griffith at kicker, and he didn’t miss an extra point attempt last year while making 23 of 32 field goal attempts. Still, Pappanastos isn’t bothered by having to compete for playing time.

“My plan is to compete as hard as I can and make both of us better,” Pappanastos said. “I am going to work hard in order to be a good alternative, and will be ready if they call my number.”

With that positive attitude, plus another great Alabama recruiting class, it’s hard to imagine the Crimson Tide not winning yet another national championship under Nick Saban.
