Top punter picks Alabama

One of the nation's top punters has announced his commitment to Alabama. Alex Asparuhov of Fresno, CA, ranked by some as a five-star punter, averaged nearly 44 yards per punt as a junior last season. The 6-3, 190-pound Asparuhov chose Alabama over offers from Florida and Oklahoma. Asparuhov is the 15th prospect to commit to Alabama's 2025 class. He is on an official visit this weekend in Tuscaloosa.
