Coach Dabo Swinney has pulled several top prospects from Alabama during the last two years, and this year he is after another one in four-star receiver Earl Alexander.

The 6-4, 205 pound prospect talked about that relationship, as well as the recruiting process in general with CUTigers.com Wednesday night. "Coach Swinney is a real nice guy. He has been on me since last spring," Alexander said. "We get along really good."

In terms of a top five, Alexander has already solidified his favorite schools. "I like Georgia, Alabama, Clemson, Louisville and LSU right now. Those would be my top schools. "So far, I have camped at Auburn and Georgia this summer. I also went to the Scout.com combine and the Nike combine. Right now I plan to end the summer by camping at LSU," he said.

The talented athlete is hoping to visit Clemson later this fall. "I have never been to Clemson. I am going to try to go up this season for a game," said Alexander.

"I know a couple of the guys (at Clemson) from Opelika. I played against Jacquez (McKissic) and Adrian (Kindred). They both played basketball and football. We competed against each other."

What will Alexander consider most in the recruiting process? "Probably the depth chart," he said. "I will look at the offense to see if I will fit and also at the academic program to see if they have my major. I want to major in Business Management.

"I am looking for a wide open offense. I like to spread it out."

Don't expect an early decision from the Alabama standout. "I will wait until after the season. I want to take some official visits," Alexander added.
