Kwon Alexander talks Alabama visit

Kwon Alexander, National 100 outside linebacker from Oxford, Ala., was in Tuscaloosa this past weekend for an official visit. Andrew Bone has the latest news...


"The trip was straight," said Kwon Alexander. "Everything was about the same. It was good. I didn't feel pressured to commit or anything.

"I thought the food was really good. That was probably the best part of my visit. They fed us pretty good down there."

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound athlete discussed potential positions with the Tide coaching staff if he decides to play college football in Tuscaloosa.

"The coaches were just telling me if I come up there I have to work hard to get on the field," he said. "They didn't really say where I would play. They said I could play multiple positions like safety and linebacker.

"Coach Saban was just talking to me about me graduating from high school. He told me nothing is guaranteed. He said If I came to Alabama I would have to work hard to get on the field.

"I hung out with Kirby Smart and coach Pruitt. They were basically saying the same thing. They were saying they could use me at different spots."

Alexander was hosted by Xzavier Dickson who signed with Alabama last year from the Peach State.

"I like everything about Alabama," Alexander said. "They are just like everyone else. I like coach Cochran and all the coaches. They are real cool. Everything is great about the school."

The National 100 recruit tore his ACL during the early part of the regular season. Three SEC schools are pushing the most.

"I haven't really decided yet if I am going to take any other visits," Alexander said. "Alabama, Auburn and LSU are coming at me the hardest right now. Nobody is separating themselves from anyone else. Everyone is still the same. I will make my decision on signing day."

Alexander has taken official visits to Alabama, Auburn, Florida State and LSU.
