Many Alabama fans have wondered if senior placekicker Will Reichard would be returning in 2023 to use his fifth year of eligibility or starting his professional career.

The answer to this question seemingly came on Saturday as Reichard officially accepted an invite to the upcoming Reese's Senior Bowl.

Reichard is the seventh Alabama player to accept an invite to this post-season college football all-star game held in Mobile. Reichard joins Emil Ekiyor, Byron Young, DJ Dale, Cameron Latu, DeMarcco Hellams, and Tyler Steen.

The Hoover, Ala. native currently ranks as the all-time leader in career points in Alabama history with 417. Reichard also holds the Alabama record for career PATs (234).

This season, Reichard is 21-of-25 on field goals and a perfect 58-of-58 on PATs. The placekicker has totaled 5,439 yards and 45 touchbacks on 86 kickoffs.

The Lou Groza Award semifinalist has stepped up in several moments for the Crimson Tide, including nailing a 52-yard, game-winning field goal on Sept. 10, to lead Alabama over Texas in Austin.

The Crimson Tide looks to fill Reichard's shoes with Conor Talty, the No. 3 kicker in the class of 2023 according to 247Sports Composite. Talty finished his senior season 17-of-21 on field goals and a perfect 36-of-36 on PATs.

Catch Reichard and the rest of the Alabama players competing in the Senior Bowl on Saturday, Feb. 4 at 1:30 p.m. CST on the NFL Network.
