On the eve of signing day, Alabama added a preferred walk-on who could be directly responsible for winning (or losing) games in the near future.

Wasson will be a preferred walk-on in Tuscaloosa, according to Chris Sailer Kicking.
Rising senior Adam Griffith is expected to hold down the starting kicking duties for another season, but Wasson will bring depth to a position that lacked competition in 2015.
