Alexander's Stock Rising

Earl Alexander, from Central-Phenix City High School, has seen his stock soar over the past few months.

The 6-5, 210 pound athletic quarterback, ran a 4.55 (40x) at the combine in Auburn. Alexander is closing in on his fourth offer. "I still have the same offers from Alabama, Clemson, and Louisville," said Earl Alexander. "I talked to Georgia today. I think they are close to offering me. They want me as athlete not just a quarterback."

Alexander said, "There were a whole heap of coaches here during the spring. Auburn, Clemson, Louisville, Georgia, Southern Miss, Alabama, and Alabama State all came to the school. I received phone calls from Georgia, Auburn, Clemson, and Louisville." When asked about favorites, Alexander replied, "It's wide open right now. Maybe by the end of the summer I will have my favorites. I am leaning towards heading out of state right now. I might go somewhere like Georgia or Mississippi. Probably Georgia because I really like their style of play. I like how they switch things up."

The Georgia coaching staff has made a strong impression on the Alabama athlete. "Coach Mark Richt is real nice," Alexander said. "He is a real cool coach. Coach Mark Bobo is also a real nice guy. He and Coach Calloway are the two who have been recruiting me."

Alexander is not in any rush to make a decision. "It will probably be around national signing day or after my season before I make any decision," he said. "I would love to make my decision on Countdown to Signing Day sometime. I am heading to several summer camps. I am going to Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Louisville, and Alabama."

Alexander is also excited about his senior season, and the offense at Central-Phenix City will showcase his skills. "Spring training went really good this year," he said. "We are going to be running the spread offense. I will be throwing the ball a lot more, and I will be able to run with the ball." Top Stories
