Lou Groza Award winner Graham Nicholson plans to transfer to Alabama.

The former Miami of Ohio All-American, who won the award as the nation's top placekicker last season, announced his commitment Sunday on social media.

Crimson Tide coach Kalen DeBoer is looking for a replacement for Will Reichard, the NCAA's all-time leading scorer.

Nicholson made 27 of 28 field goals last season for the RedHawks and all but one of his 36 extra-point attempts. He's the first Lou Groza Award winner from the Mid-American Conference.

Nicholson made a career-long 52-yarder against Bowling Green and scored 113 points last season, fourth-most in program history. The three-year starter made a Miami career record 84.5% of his field goal attempts.
