UAB might have just found themselves a steal in the spring signing period garnering the commitment of a very polished front court player in 6-foot-8 230 pound Willesley Butler. Butler averaged 13 points and 6.6 rebounds this last season at Pensacola State.
JucoRecruiting.com ranks Butler as the 30th overall JUCO prospect in the 2018 top 100 rankings.
Butler along with Tamell Pearson and Jude Akabueze will make up for a solid foundation for UAB to build off going forward in the front court. Butler will be a junior next season.
By my count UAB has two spots left to fill in the spring signing period which ends mid May.
