Former UAB receiver Jackie Williams will transfer to UCF

It didn't Jackie Williams long to find a new college football home.

The former UAB receiver will transfer to Central Florida for his final season. The decision comes less than a week after UAB dismissed him from the program.

Williams will sit out this season due to NCAA transfer rules. He'll be eligible again in 2014.

Williams caught 52 passes for 799 yards last season. He's fourth in program history in catches (140) and yards receiving (1,733).

Central Florida is moving from Conference USA to American Athletic Conference, which is made up of the football playing members of the Big East Conference.
