Tulsa (OK) Booker T. Washington grid standout Dominique Alexander has eight offers, but he would love to land a special ninth one.
Alexander (6-2, 200, 4.4) was the Hornets' quarterback last season for most of 2010, but is trying to prove to the Razorback staff during this week's football camp hat he can play safety, cornerback or wideout in college.
"I have eight offers right now, but Arkansas (who has not offered yet) is my favorite and I am hoping they offer me after this camp," Alexander said. "Arkansas is real good school with a great program and great facilities. They are close to home, a dominant program, a powerhouse and the Booker T. Washington players that have come here before have been treated great."
Some of those former Booker T. Washington stars who made their way to Arkansas are current Dallas Cowboys tailback Felix Jones, current Razorback starting safety Eric Bennett and 2012 cornerback signee Jared Collins.
"The thing that impresses me is that if you are good enough to play right away, Arkansas will put you on the field," Alexander said. "They have treated Felix and Eric so well and I know they will be, too. If they offer, that is probably where I am going to go."
Alexander has offers from Texas Tech, Iowa State, Indiana, Louisiana-Monroe, New Mexico, Utah State, Tulsa and Arkansas State.
"Most schools are recruiting me as a safety although some little ones are talking to me about linebacker," Alexander said.
"I feel like I am a very raw player, but a very versatile one," Alexander said. "I think all the coaches know that if I sit down and actually concentrate on a position other than quarterback, I am going to be real good at it."
The Hornets won the 2010 state title in Class 5A, but fell back to 4-6 last season under new head coach Marvin Dantzler.
"That's not us at all," noted Alexander, one of eight starters still around from that 2010 state title squad.
Alexander will be playing full-time at wideout this season for Booker T. Washington as Bennett White, who started the last three games at quarterback last season, takes over there full time.
He had eight catches for 184 yards in those last three games.
"I am excited about getting to play wide receiver on offense," Alexander said. "That is my natural position and I think it is going to make us a more powerful offense."
