Alex Byers is set to return to his southeast roots.

The junior college wide receiver and return man committed to UAB. He's the ninth member of the Blazers 2015 recruiting class.

Byers led the Antelope Valley football team with 9 touchdowns last season, catching six touchdowns and returning three kickoffs for scores. The 6-foot-2, 170 pound player had 23 catches for 398 yards in 10 games in 2013.

Byers also had offers from Illinois, Utah and possibly Georgia State.
