"People think cornerbacks can't be physical," Alexander said. "But that's not true. I know that's just the way I play. I think I play the position with instincts. I react and can play the run. I can play in man coverage too."
College programs have noticed as well. He has a handful of scholarship offers right now.
Alexander won't make any official visits this fall. Those will come after the season is over. But he does hope to make some Saturday college games.
"I am hoping to. Here, it's kind of tough," Alexander said. "I would love to see some teams that are close for me like LSU and Ole Miss. But to be honest, I am focused on the season and winning. I don't even plan on committing until signing day."
John Curtis hosted New Jersey power Oradell Bergen Catholic last night. They won 24-13. Alexander had a nice night which included an interception and a handful of tackles. This is an aggressive defensive back that is not shy of contact. He was impressive.
"It's big to play a team like that. I mean it's better than playing someone you are going to beat up on," Alexander said. "It's early and we made a ton of mistakes. We have to evaluate ourselves and correct those mistakes and fight through it each week. Next week, we have another big game.
