Jerod Haase has made a nice pickup as former Virginia Tech Hokie Robert Brown has decided to transfer into the UAB program.

Brown, a 6-foot-5 two-guard from Florida, averaged 8.3 points as a sophomore in Blacksburg, but he saw his three-point shooting percentage drop to 23.5%. His connection to UAB is that two former assistant coaches, Rob Ehsan and Jeff Wulbrun, were on the Tech staff when he was a freshman.

“I’m real [close] to Coach Ehsan and Coach Wulbrun,” Brown told “It’s significantly closer to home from where I was. They brought me in and showed me the campus and I really liked it.”
