Nick Saban has already started filling out transfer paperwork after reading this Mo Isom interview at And The Valley Shook:
Are you still planning on trying out for the football team this spring as a kicker?
Absolutely. I've been training since January of this year!
I had it in my mind, and I approached some of the players I know, and they were so enthusiastic. And then I talked to some of the coaching staff, because of course I wanted to be in their good graces. I was expecting to see some resistance but all the doors were open to me, and everybody has been so excited, which is so great.
I started working out with the team some this summer, which wound up helping as some cross-training for soccer, and I kept working on my kicking in my spare time. Then this fall I went through the walk-on tryouts, just to kind of see what it was like, and I kicked a 51-yarder.
Obviously I was going to finish up in soccer, but I will be back to try out again this spring.
