DE Alexander Discusses Auburn, Others

Louisiana defensive end prospect Frank Alexander talks recruiting.

Baton Rouge, La.--There have been conflicting reports on a final official visit destination for Southern Lab High's Frank Alexander, and a good reason for that could be that the big defensive end prospect does not know where, if anywhere, he is going to be visiting over the final weekend before the Feb. 7th national signing day.

"I don't have anything set up for this weekend yet," the 6-5, 248-pounder said. "I don't know what is going to come up."

Alexander said that if he decides to take one more official visit prior to national signing day he will check out Miami, LSU or Alabama.

Even though Alexander is not sure which college he may visit this weekend, he has previously visited Auburn and he said that he is sure he is interested in the Tigers. He noted that a pair of Auburn coaches stopped by his house on Monday night to check in.

"Coach (Greg) Knox and Coach (Terry) Price came by," he said. "It was a pretty good visit."

When asked what he and the coaches discussed, Alexander said, "Nothing exciting, just the same stuff we have been talking about. You know, they just reinforced the situation and the way things were going to be at Auburn."

Alexander also noted that he has really enjoyed being recruited by both Knox, a wide receiver coach who recruits the New Orleans area for the Tigers, and Price, who coaches defensive ends. "Both of them are real cool and they will look out for you," he said. "Both of them are very good coaches as well. "

With signing day a week away, Alexander said he is considering Oklahoma, Auburn, Tulane, Miami and LSU for his possible college destination.

When asked if there is anything that makes Auburn stand out from the other colleges, he responded, "Right now, I don't know. I mean both situations, both schools, there is not a bad choice. If I go to Oklahoma that is not a bad choice, Auburn is not a bad choice. Mainly I have got to sit down and think about where I want to spend my next four years."
