Scout's take: UAB lands William Lee

ESPN 100 power forward William Lee (Plantersville, Ala./Dallas County), the No. 65 player in the Class of 2014, has committed to UAB over finalists Alabama, Mississippi State, SMU, Georgia and Wichita State.

This is a huge get for UAB coach Jerod Haase, who landed the best player from the state of Alabama to anchor the Blazers' 2014 class.

Why he committed: UAB recruited Lee more consistently, and he will have the opportunity to be the Blazers' go-to guy from Day 1.
