Lancaster, Texas, three-star athlete Tyrell Alexander (6-1, 170) is committed to Oklahoma State, but wanted to take a good look at Arkansas this weekend before finalizing his decision.
He did just that and Alexander - who also took an official visit to Tennessee - has something to think about as the Feb. 3 national signing day looms.
“Everything went pretty good for me,” Alexander said. “ I enjoyed myself. The recruiting coaches and the real coaches treated me real nice while I was down here.”
Oklahoma State has Alexander - who played quarterback in high school - slotted as a wide receiver prospect while Arkansas sees him as a defensive back that could possibly play other positions.
“They’re recruiting me as an athlete,” Alexander said of the Razorbacks. “ I found out that they’re kind of taking me at multiple positions, so if I didn’t really want to play corner, I could play receiver. It’s something to look at.”
Arkansas freshman safety Willie Sykes was Alexander’s host this weekend.
“He kind of went more in-depth with how everything goes, like a typical day at practice, how the season is, the process during games and pre-game,” Alexander said. “ He gave me a lot more information on it.”
Alexander said that Arkansas was the last visit that he will take and he will now go home to focus on his decision.
“The factors are going to be a relationship with the coaches, mainly,” Alexander said. “Me being able to go to them and be comfortable around them, just knowing that I’m going to spend the next four years with him and all day everyday with my position coach.”
