2013: Alexander A Two-Sport Recruit

Midwest Regional Manager
Posted Aug 16, 2011


Iowa City (Ia.) West rising junior receiver Dondre Alexander is a special athlete who is getting looks from BCS schools on the gridiron.

Iowa City West has produced good talent over the last few years with players like Charlie Rogers in this year's class as well.

In the 2013 class, the school appears to have another big time prospect in wide receiver Dondre Alexander, a 6'3, 205-lb athlete who only just started playing football, but has learned to love it.

"I didn't really pay attention to football that much," he explained. "I just started playing football when I got to high school. Basketball season was after football, and I wanted to get bigger and faster for basketball, but now I'm liking it."

Alexander is also getting college looks for basketball, and says, "I'm thinking about doing both in college. I don't think I'll be able to choose one or the other."

Right now, Alexander says the three schools he hears the most from are Iowa, Iowa State and Michigan State, and he hears from the same schools for basketball.

"I'm getting a lot of questionnaires," he added. "I didn't go to any of them, not this summer. Next summer I'm planning on going to a lot of them."

Alexander played defense last year as well. He has not thought about which position he'd rather play in college, but based on his sophomore production (37 receptions, 536 yards and four touchdowns), wide receiver appears most likely.

Now that football has become more of his focus, he worked even harder in the off-season and believes he will be even better for it when the season opens in a couple weeks.

"I think I got faster than I was last year and bigger and stronger."
