UAB Receives Commitment From C.J. Washington
C.J. Washington, a 6-foot-8, 225-pound forward from Tallahassee (Fla.) Community College, gave his verbal commitment to sign with the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
"I liked everything about UAB," Washington said. "The coaches, the school, the players, the community, it's a family-oriented place. I like how the coach was with the players and I like the style of play."
Washington said he'll play either forward position for UAB.
"I can handle it and I can step out and shoot it," Washington said. "I can post up when I need to. My defense has improved a lot and I can guard smaller players. I work hard on everything."
