Grissom’s Butta Johnson signs with UAB

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – A Grissom senior signed a letter of intent on Friday to play basketball with the University of Birmingham (UAB).

Efrem “Butta” Johnson got his nickname because he was so sweet on the pitch. In the fall, Johnson will start playing for the UAB Blazers. This makes him the first Grissom basketball player to play Division 1 ball in years.

Johnson says he is grateful to everyone who has helped him along the way and is looking forward to taking it to the next level.

Johnson said: “It’s really good to come from where I come from. A lot of people don’t really make it to this job and those who do make it don’t do very well. So being here and doing it with my family is really exciting. UAB is a really big build program and they’re coming in and I think UAB is a really good place for me.
