UAB’s most recent Junior Day is in the books, and it appears to have been an absolute success. Reports have come out saying UAB had anywhere from 300 to 500-plus high school prospects in attendance. The vast majority of them were high school juniors, however, there were a few sophomores and freshmen on campus as well.

This past weekend’s event allowed some of the state’s best talent to see in person what they have been hearing about on social media the last several months. They were able to see the campuses’ best facilities, including the new Hill University Center and the Campus Rec. They were also shown renderings of future projects that are set to begin as early as this summer, such as the new football practice facility. Lastly, they were provided the opportunity to watch the team practice.

Coach Clark has emphasized the importance of building back up relationships with in-state prospects. Since it was first announced that UAB would be returning to the football field, the Blazers have primarily focused on recruiting JUCO talent to come in and serve as the team’s new foundation. UAB will continue to recruit top JUCO prospects, but they are now concentrating on keeping the best high school players in Alabama in-state.

This weekend was a huge step in the right direction.

Below you’ll see a running list of high school players who are known to have visited UAB’s Junior Day this past weekend. Names may be added to this list as they become available. Please note there are a lot of players who visited UAB who are not on this list.
