Former Mandeville High kicker Bulovas transfer from Alabama to Vanderbilt
Former Mandeville and Alabama kicker Joseph Bulovas has transferred to Vanderbilt.
As a grad student, he is immediately eligible for 2021.
The 6-foot, 206-pound Bulovas began his college football journey with the Crimson Tide as a 2017 signee and the third rated kicker in the country. He converted on a career best 52 yard field goal as a sophomore for the Skippers and showed a booming leg.
Offers from Army, Mississippi State, Georgia Tech and UTSA came his way early but Bulovas committed to the Yellow Jackets. It wasn’t until later, after receiving an offer from Alabama, that he switched his pledge.
Bulovas redshirted in ’17 and handled kick off responsibilities along with place kicking attempts as a redshirt freshman in 2018. He converted on 14 of 18 attempts with a long of 49 yards against Mississippi State that season.
With a chance to tie the game against Auburn in 2019 with the Crimson Tide trailing 48-45 and 2:04 remaining on the game clock, he missed on a 30-yard try. Bulovas did not kick in game action this past season. Will Reichard, a Lou Groza finalist, assumed those duties for Alabama.
Bulovas is 22-of-29 on field goal attempts and 134 of 142 in extra point tries in his college career.
