A talented safety for Coach Jamey Dubose, the 6-1, 170 Alexander was a playmaker last season on a team that finished the year 7-5. Last Saturday he was part of a huge Junior Day on the Auburn campus as he traveled down to check out Coach Gus Malzahn's program. After seeing Auburn up close and personal, Alexander says there is plenty like about the Tigers.
"I thought it was great," Alexander says. "I loved every bit of it. I loved it."
A smaller safety, Alexander isn't quite what Auburn is looking for in its new 4-2-5 defense that Coach Ellis Johnson wants to fill with physical players at the position. Because of that he says that the Tigers want to see him play outside on defense and it's something he's willing to do.
"They want to see me at corner," Alexander says. "They said they want their safeties bigger. They want to see me play a little bit of man coverage during the spring or at a camp. I think I can play corner. I think I can just play football period."
Along with Doss, Alexander made the visit to Auburn with teammate Cole Hardin and several more players. They met as a group with Malzahn and he says the talk was something that makes them hungry to get back to work this spring.
"It was great just to be able to share the visit with my teammates," Alexander says. "It's really the first time for all of us to have an experience like that. There's nothing like it."
