  For the first time since the program was reinstated six years, and making its re-debut four seasons ago, the UAB football program has a player selected in the NFL Draft. Former UAB outside linebacker Jordan Smith was taken in the fourth round by the Jacksonville Jaguars with the 121st overall pick. Smith is the 15th player from UAB to be drafted and becomes the first selected since wide receiver J.J. Nelson and tight end Kennard Backman were taken in the fifth and sixth rounds of the 2015 draft. - Birmingham Post Herald

  The UAB football program got halfway through spring practice last year before the world came to a screeching halt. No spring game. No closure. Despite the cancellation of UAB's final two games at the Old Gray Lady last season, the Blazers get an opportunity to close out their former home before moving into Protective Stadium. The Blazers are set to conclude spring practice with their annual spring game, Saturday, April 10, at Legion Field in Birmingham, the program announced today after opening spring practice yesterday. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. The Blazers are coming off a third straight division title and second Conference USA championship, as well as its fifth straight bowl-eligible season under head coach Bill Clark. - Birmingham Post Herald

  The player once seen as Kylin Hill's potential successor intends on leaving Mississippi State. A source confirmed to the Clarion Ledger sophomore running back Lee Witherspoon has entered the NCAA transfer portal. Witherspoon started this past season as MSU's fourth-string running back behind Hill and true freshmen Jo'quavious Marks and Dillon Johnson. Hill opted out in the first half of the year, but Witherspoon's playing time did not increase as a result. Witherspoon recorded six carries for 35 yards and nine catches for 49 yards in 2020. As a true freshman in 2019, Witherspoon had 22 carries for 101 yards and a touchdown. - The Clarion Ledger
