With regards to his recruitment, he currently is focused on three teams.
"LSU, Oklahoma and Auburn (are the three in the mix, no order)," Alexander said. "I've already taken visits to Oklahoma and Auburn earlier and plan to take a visit to LSU when I get back from this game."
He talked about what he liked about the hometown Bayou Bengals, who could be considered the frontrunners for his services at the moment..
"I've always liked LSU," he said. "My cousin went to LSU and it's close to home. I don't want to get too far way from home or my family. You could say that I like LSU the most right now."
Oklahoma and Auburn are recruiting Alexander as a defensive end, but LSU has spoken to him about a different position.
"LSU wants me to play tight end," he said.
Should things fall through with the Bayou Bengals, Alexander spoke highly of his other suitors.
"I had a really good visit (to Oklahoma)," he said. "I really liked the coaches and the atmosphere. With Auburn, I really like the style of defense that they play and they have talked to me about coming in and coming off the edge. So I like that."
Alexander also is a standout basketball player and was considered a potential Division I prospect in that sport, but it now appears like his college future will be on the gridiron.
"I don't want to say for sure (that I won't play college basketball) because my season isn't over yet," Alexander said. "But it's looking more and more like I am going to be going to college to play football."
Alexander is a high (5.7) three-star rated prospect and the No. 18 weakside defensive end prospect in the nation.
