UAB Snares Swingman
Alabama-Birmingham landed its first recruit of the year. Derrick Broom, a swingman from Cartersville (GA) Woodland, picked Alabama-Birmingham.
A few months ago, UNC-Wilmington had led for his services, but the Blazers got it done.
Broom starred with the Georgia Stars on the spring and summer AAU circuit his year. However, he was slowed by a nagging injury and his effectiveness was limited this summer. What he does is score the basketball. He's a good shooter with range that extends to 3-point range but will also hit some shots on the move.
This is a nice pickup for the Blazers and seemingly a good fit at both ends.
