  Former Auburn cornerback A.D. Diamond will continue his college career with an in-state FBS program. Diamond, a reserve cornerback for the last two seasons on the Plains, announced his commitment to UAB on Friday evening. Diamond left Auburn in late October and entered the transfer portal after failing to see the field during his first two seasons with the Tigers. A native of Mobile and Blount graduate, Diamond is a former three-star prospect who signed with Auburn as part of its 2021 class.

He was a two-way standout at Blount, where he played defensive back and wide receiver. As a senior he caught 38 passes for 756 yards and added 25 tackles, 21 pass breakups and seven interceptions on the defensive side. Diamond, who was committed to Louisiana Tech throughout his senior season at Blount, flipped to Auburn under interim coach Kevin Steele in December 2020, joining the program during the transition from Gus Malzahn to Bryan Harsin. - Birmingham News

  The worst-kept secret on the Southside is now out and in the ether. UAB junior running back DeWayne McBride will forgo his senior season at UAB, declaring for the 2023 NFL Draft today on his social media accounts. McBride was a first-team All-C-USA selection, earning three player of the week awards this season, and named C-USA Offensive Player of the Year after finishing the regular season with a nation-leading 1,713 rushing yards, breaking UAB's single-season rushing record previously held by Jordan Howard, and scored 19 touchdowns to break Spencer Brown's previous record of 16 touchdowns in 2018.

He led the nation in yards per game (155.7) and rushes of more than 20 yards (23) and broke Howard's single-game rushing record with a 272-yard performance in the season finale at LA Tech. The NCAA active career leader in yards per carry (7.3), McBride was the focal point of a unit ranked fifth in the nation in rushing offense (243.8 ypg). He led the Blazers to a school-record 2,925 rushing yards during the regular season and set single-season program records in yards per carry (7.35), 100-yard games (10), 200-yard games (3), total points (118) and multi-touchdown games (5). - Birmingham Post Herald
