The Bearcats have been aggressive in the City of Memphis this football recruiting season. That hard work has already paid off when MUS' star defensive back, Alex Dale, committed to Cincinnati. To learn more about this Memphian, read and watch below.

Name: Alex Dale
MUS (Tenn)
Defensive Back
5' 9 1/2", 175-pounds
Committed to Cincinnati
Scout.com Ranking: 2-Star

Scout.com live evaluation: Alex Dale was one of the more impressive cornerbacks we watched at the camps in June. He checked in at 5' 9 1/2", 175 and ran a 4.54 laser forty time. But it is more than the numbers that jump out. He breaks on the ball nicely and plays an aggressive bump and run style. Dale's lack of size and speed might have scared off a few recruiters but his ballhawk skills and anticipation of where the ball is going more than makes up for it.
