I dont know how the hell UAB coach Mike Davis pulled this one off. Cousins had offers from every major school in the country. Alabama fans are HEATED...saying they should shut down the athletics program at UAB. I think they are upset because UABs basketball team is the best college program in the state.

DeMarcus Cousins gives UAB head basketball coach Mike Davis a solid start on what Davis thinks will be one of the best recruiting classes in the nation in 2009.
Cousins, a 6-foot-9, 245-pound junior from LeFlore High of Mobile, said on Friday that he will play for Davis at UAB. He's expected to sign a national letter of intent in the early signing period this fall.
Cousins is the No. 4 ranked junior in the nation by Scout.com and No. 5 on the Hoops Top 100 ranking by Rivals.com. His junior year ended on Thursday when LeFlore dropped a 63-59 decision to Hillcrest-Tuscaloosa in the Class 6A state championship semifinals.
