The UAB Football program held its NLI Signing Day Event on Wednesday, February 1, at Iron City. Head coach Bill Clark and his staff gave an exclusive in-depth look at the 2017 signing class, including those who signed on February 1 and the 12 mid-year enrollees who signed in December. “Recruiting is the lifeline to college football,” Clark said. “We are beyond excited with the base we’ve built and we have continued to add really good players during the signing periods. UAB Football wouldn’t be where it is today without the support of our community.” UAB Football season tickets are now on sale. The Blazers open the season at home on September 2 against Alabama A&M.
