Alexander Transfers East

DeAngelo Alexander, a 6-foot-5 swingman, played his last season at Oklahoma as a sophomore in 2004. On Thursday, Alexander made the decision to transfer east.

The Charlotte 49ers are the proud owners of a commitment from former Oklahoma sophomore DeAngelo Alexander. The 6-foot-5, 215 pound Alexander averaged 9.4 points and 4 rebounds in 24 minutes of action last season for the Sooners.

As a high schooler, Alexander came out of Midwest City, Okla., where he averaged 19 points a game and was the No. 64 player in America.

He'll be expected to have an immediate impact on the program after sitting out next season. "I think it's a different style of basketball then I play now," Alexander said. "It's more wide open and I can do something down low in the post."

Georgia Tech and St. John's showed interest in Alexander but after visiting Charlotte it became a done deal. "They started recruiting me and I liked it and then I went down to take a visit and I liked it. The opportunity for me there is big."
