Four-star Breaux Bridge (La.) defensive end Charles Alexander made his first official visit this weekend.
“I just got back from m visit to Oklahoma State,” he said. “It was a real fun trip. They lost the game (55-16 to Texas), but everything else was impressive. I liked the people there more than anything. Their players were cool and the coaches seemed real nice. I liked their academic support staff, too.”
Alexander (6-3, 266, 4.9) is rated the nation’s No. 11 strongside defensive end by Rivals.com. In addition to the Cowboys, he also has offers from LSU, Florida State, Michigan, Michigan State, Tennessee, Auburn and Tulane.
He’s in the process of setting up his other four official visits.
“My top five right now is LSU, Florida State, Oklahoma State, Michigan State and Tennessee,” Alexander said. “Oklahoma State is up there now that I visited them. The next time Michigan State and Florida State call, I’m going to set up my visits with them.”
LSU is still considered the team to beat. “They’re looking real strong,” he said.
Alexander has recorded approximately 80 tackles and seven sacks through nine games this season. As a junior, he had 80 tackles and 10 sacks.
Academically, he carries a 2.5 GPA and is awaiting his new test scores. He had a 15 on his last ACT.
