In a good year for linebackers in the Lone Star State, it’s easy to overlook players like Ft. Worth (Texas) North Crowley outside linebacker Todd Alexander.
The 6-foot-1, 193-pound all-district selection as a junior was timed at an impressive 4.56-seconds in the 40-yard dash at the College Station NIKE Training Camp, but he describes his nose for the football as his best attribute.
“I pretty much read and react,” he said. “I know where they’re going to be before they do. I like to read and be in the right place.”
Alexander has been a busy man this summer camping at Baylor, Kansas, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, SMU and TCU.
“Most of them were just one-day camps,” Alexander said. “They were really fun, and I learned a lot.”
Alexander does have one scholarship offer from Louisiana Monroe. He’s hoping to get more from the others on his list soon.
“I like TCU since it’s close to home,” he said. “And both my parents went to Tech, but I don’t really have a favorite specific school yet. I’m pretty focused on helping my team win district and keep going.”
