"[I] just felt LSU was the best fit for me," Alexander said. "Also a big part of it was my relationship with coach Jones and coach [Robert] Kirby & also them believing and trusting in the player I am and they player they can make me. I trust that they can turn me into that player."
Alexander, of Lafayette (La.) Christian Academy, picked LSU over a host Marquette, Arizona, Western Kentucky, NC State, Memphis and TCU.
Alexander is Scout's No. 62 overall prospect and No. 16 ranked small forward.
