Detroit King (Mich.) class of 2013 safety Leon Alexander talks about his first offer and the other interested parties.

A versatile 6'3, 190-lb prospect, Leon Alexander admits he had to wait longer than he wanted to for the first offer to come, but it's here now as Central Michigan offered this week.

"It felt great," he said. "I put in work this offseason and I was getting a little impatient, but I talked to my coach, he said be patient and they'll come and it came the next week."

Alexander can play wide receiver and safety, and even saw time as a Wildcat quarterback last year. The Chippewas see him in the defensive backfield and he says he'll play wherever he's needed.

"No sir, [no preference]. The main goal is just to get to college, get to next level, and it's a blessing to play big division football in the MAC."

Alexander has been to Mount Pleasant and liked what he saw.

"I've been up there for the junior day. It's very nice, very homey. The players were nice, so were the coaches. I had a chance to bond with them. It's real nice."

Alexander has received additional interest from Cornell, Illinois State, the entire MAC and Illinois. He will be heading to a few camps this summer.

"I know I'm going to Toledo, Northwestern, Bowling Green and Sound Mind Sound Body so far."
