UAB is looking to veterans Nick Adams, Patrick Hearn and Jackie Williams to work as mentors for fellow receivers Jamarcus Nelson, D.J. Vinson and Jay Davis.
While Adams is the team's deep threat, Hearn is the team's best overall receiver and Williams is still improving. Instead of making it a competition the coaching staff has set starters in place and let the team grow. With the wide open nature of the offense Adams and Hearn can shine with Frantrell Forrest and Mike Jones gone, so remember those names on draft day.
