LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Due to an ACL injury suffered during his senior season, Oxford (Ala.) four-star outside linebacker Kwon Alexander likely won't be playing in the Under Armour All-America Game. He is still enjoying his time in the Sunshine State nonetheless.
"I may do a couple of drills," Alexander said. "But I am not trying to go to hard. I am just trying to get healed up."
While he is sidelined, Alexander is able to enjoy the time away from the field with his fellow All-Americans.
"It has been fun," Alexander said. "Everybody is fun out here. As we get to know each other, everybody is trying to drive each other to their team. A lot of recruiting going on. Everybody is cool though."
The 6-foot-2, 212-pound linebacker is now down to three schools.
"It is Alabama, Auburn, and LSU right now," Alexander said. "I am going to decide on Signing Day."
During the season, Alexander took official visits to check out Auburn and LSU.
"At Auburn, everything stood out," Alexander said. "I have been down there so much that I know a lot about it already. It was like a regular visit to me.
"LSU was a good visit," Alexander added. "All of the coaches and players were cool. The strength coach was cool. It was a good atmosphere."
He plans to take an official visit to see his third finalist at some point this month.
"I am planning to take an official visit to Alabama in January," Alexander said. "I don't know a date yet."
At this stage of the process, Alexander isn't set to name a leader.
"They are all even," Alexander said. "It is going to come down to my family, a place with good coaches and players to be around, and a good atmosphere."
