2017 Sierra CB Johnathan Fletcher grabbed an offer from UAB recently

2017 Sierra CB Johnathan Fletcher (6-0, 190) recently hauled in his first offer, from UAB, and he updated JCFootball.com on that as well as other early recruiting news...

"UAB is my first offer," a happy Fletcher told JCFootball.com. "The defensive backs coach (Blake Shrader) just had got ahold of my highlights and had showed the defensive coordinator (Duwan Walker) my film and he said he loved it then last night (Walker) said they showed it to the head coach (Bill Clark) and he loved it and thought I was a good player and they wanted to offer me."

The Blazers are the first offer for the talented corner, but they certainly aren't the only school interested in what Fletcher can do.

"Iowa State and Georgia State have been talking to me a lot, so things are picking up," Fletcher noted.

As a freshman last season, Fletcher locked down his side of the field, finishing with a team-leading five interceptions and eight pass breakups while also racking up 37 tackles.

"Physical, athletic," Fletcher responded when asked to describe his game. "I have pretty good length, good speed, I am good with down and distance and route recognition."

As a prep at Tanner (Al.) High School, Fletcher had several schools looking at him after a good junior season, however, he had to miss his senior season due to grade issues and that led to schools losing interest, so he decided to take the JUCO route and Sierra was the logical choice in his mind.

"The defensive backs coach here started calling me at the end of my senior year and I decided to come here," Fletcher said. "The program is good and there is talent out here, so it was a bit of a culture shock for me moving from Alabama out here to Sierra, but I've made it work and it's paying off."

Fletcher is on pace to finish up his two-year degree next May and he will have three years to play two following the 2016 football season.
