Before spring practice River Ridge (La.) John Curtis cornerback Terrence Alexander held close to 40 offers. Now, he has more.
The 5-10, 178-pound cover corner reports new offers from Western Kentucky, Kentucky, Minnesota, Utah, Tulsa, and Louisville. When he stops listing he pauses to make sure he has not forgotten anyone who has offered during spring drills. Then it is on to the next question
Offers have come from big time programs with crystal ball statues in their trophy cases, just as they have come from programs still trying to gain their footing in the division one world, and Alexander is keeping an open mind.
Tuesday, he received word of yet another offer - Ohio State. It was not a surprise to him to receive word from the Buckeyes, but it was welcome news.
"I've been talking to Ohio State for about a week and a half," Alexander said. "Ever since they saw me at practice they've been staying in touch with me."
Alexander's teammate, Mattrell McGraw, plans to visit Ohio State June 21, and if the trip to Columbus comes together Alexander plans to join on the visit.
In addition to the potential visit to Ohio State, Alexander also plans to visit Ole Miss.
"I'll be at Ole Miss on the 7th," Alexander said. "I'm not camping though it's just a visit. I think they have a camp that day but I don't have to go to the camp."
He continues to contemplate his summer plans and more and more schools are presenting him with summer options.
"Right now it's shocking with so many calls. It's so crazy," Alexander said. "Ole Miss, they've been staying in contact. Northwestern, Stanford, Arkansas, Georgia Tech, Kentucky…there's a lot of schools staying in contact with me."
He is not ready to name any favorites at this point, but he does have plans to narrow his list soon.
"I'm going to cut my list to five when the summer ends," Alexander said. "Then I'll cut it to three after that. I don't know when yet."
