Earl Alexander is the perfect example of how rankings of prospects is a fluid exercise. Prior to summer camps and combines in which athletes can demonstrate their skills, Alexander earned a ranking of number nine in the state's top ten prospects. New rankings will be out soon, and it will be a surprise if Alexander has not moved up.
Although the 6-4, 205-pound Alexander is quarterback at Phenix City Central, some college teams are recruiting him for other positions.
Alexander, who was clocked at 4.55 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the Scout.com summer combine in Auburn, passed for 12 touchdowns and over 1,200 yards as a junior.
The four star prospect is a lifelong Alabama fan and has always wanted to play college football for the Crimson Tide. Georgia, Louisville, and LSU will make a hard push. Alexander also has a verbal offer from Auburn.
"I grew up an Alabama fan," Alexander said. "I like their style of play, and Coach [Paul] Randolph will tell you straight up how everything is."
Georgia is one of the strongest contenders for Alexander‚' signature. Alexander wants a shot at the quarterback position, and Alabama and Georgia have offered him that opportunity.
It will come down to the wire, but the Crimson Tide leads for Earl Alexander's signature.
