Ryan Boyce, the 6-foot-5 small forward from East (TN) High School, announced his commitment to UAB on Friday via Twitter.

“Blessed to commit and further my basketball career and education at the University of Alabama Birmingham,” said Boyce via Twitter. “#GoBlazers.” 

Boyce originally cut his list to a final three of Florida, SMU, and Memphis back in August, before reopening his recruitment last month.

According to 247Sports, Boyce is ranked as the No. 141 overall player in the Class of 2018 and the No. 4 player from the state of Tennessee. He joins Chukwuebuka Akabueze and Tamell Pearson as the third commit in the Blazers’ 2018 class.

Boyce chose UAB over schools such as Florida, SMU, Memphis, Auburn, Georgia, Iowa State, Maryland, UMass, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Tulsa, Villanova, Wake Forest, and Western Kentucky, among others.

Playing with Team Penny on the Nike EYBL Circuit this past summer, Boyce averaged 7.2 points, 2.1 rebounds, 0.6 assists, and 0.6 steals per game, in 14 regular season games. In two games played at Peach Jam, Boyce averaged 8.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 1.0 blocks per game.
