Clark Announces Inaugural Recruiting Class
Blazers welcome 22 signees

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- UAB head football coach Bill Clark announced the signing of 22 prospects to National Letters of Intent on Wednesday. It marked Clark's first recruiting class as the head coach of the UAB football program.

"Obviously, we came in at a very late date from a recruiting standpoint," said Clark. "One of the first things that we wanted to do was look at what our needs were. We wanted to address those needs. That's one of the best things to happen out of this class was to be able to address our needs."

More than half of UAB's recruiting class was comprised of junior college prospects. A total of 14 prospects played at the junior college level in 2013. In addition, seven of the 22 prospects that signed with the Blazers hail from the state of California. "We found some really good, quality junior college players that fit our needs," stated Clark. "I am really excited about what we've seen in the brief time that we've gotten to know them. We feel like they are going to address some needs for us." UAB inked 11 players on the offensive side of the ball, including seven offensive linemen. Two quarterbacks, two wide receivers and one running back also joined the Blazers' football program.

10 defensive players signed their National Letters of Intent with UAB on Wednesday, including five defensive backs. Three defensive linemen, one linebacker, and one safety rounded out the 2014 UAB football recruiting class. "We had to address some immediate needs," concluded Clark. "We had to get older. We are playing in a really tough league and I'm not going to tell our seniors we are going to win in four years. We are trying to win right now, so we addressed immediate needs."
