UAB Blazers Player Transfer Tracker

New, 20 comments

Where have the players that wanted to continue to play college football transferred?

UPDATED 3/17/2015: Austin Chipoletti, is no longer with South Alabama, but two more Blazers will try to walk-on there. It also appears that Kenton Petties is transferring to an unnamed (that I can find) Community College to play basketball.

Since UAB will not field a football team, for at least the 2015 season, many of their players have transferred to other schools to continue playing. These players can play immediately for their 2015 team. Here are the 55 confirmed transfers and 1 expected transfer (***) for the coming season.

Albany State University 1
Arkansas State 1
Arkansas-Pine Bluff 4
Bethune Cookman 1
Buffalo 1

Here is the data at the individual player level- it is expected that more players will transfer in the next few weeks  to schools that will be fielding a football team for the 2015 season. Shaq Jones and several other UAB players are still determining where they will play in 2015, in these cases the 2015 teams is still listed as blank.
