Every year at this time, the trend seems to be once that first scholarship offer is extended it launches an avalanche of offers to follow.
Florida State tendered Ben Alexander from Anderson (S.C.) T.L. Hanna early last week, and not even a week later another school threw their hat in the ring with an offer.
"Georgia Tech called my coach and Coach Parker sent them some film last week and I have been hearing from them and getting letters from them," explained Alexander. "I guess they liked what they saw. They called Coach Parker last week and extended an offer."
Alexander received the written scholarship offer later in the week, as well as a hand written letter from Coach Brian Jean-Mary, who invited Alexander to call him.
"I called Coach [Brain] Jean-Mary from Georgia Tech earlier today [Sunday]," remarked Alexander. "He said that both him and Chan Gailey watched my film and were very impressed. They invited me to come down to their junior day on April the 9th."
Although any one of the ACC schools seems likely to continue the avalanche, Clemson's current interest level makes them the favorite to tender Alexander his third offer.
"I talked to coach Blackwell from Clemson," stated Alexander. "He wanted me to come to the spring practice on Friday. They said they watched film on me and they were really impressed. He said the defensive staff wrote me a letter and I show get that tomorrow."
The 6-foot-1, 288-pound defensive tackle claims to be wide open at this point.
