6-3, 215 pound linebacker prospect Kevin Alexander took an unofficial visit to Maryland this past weekend. "It went good. I liked the campus. It was another good place just like Clemson," Alexander told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.

How would he rate the visit on a scale of one to ten? "I would give it about an eight," he responded.

Over the past few weeks the Florida standout has stated that there is about a 70 percent chance that he would commit to Clemson, but things have changed slightly after this weekend's visit.

"It brought it down a little bit. I would say it's about 50% now. If it's not Clemson it would be Maryland or Louisville right now," Alexander said.

Of course, the Tigers will get one last chance to impress Alexander in January. "I will either make my decision after my Clemson visit or after I visit Tennessee. I'm visiting Clemson on January 13 and Tennessee on January 20," he said.

Several coaches visited the Union County standout last week, but bad weather kept coach Clemson's Dabo Swinney from making the trip. "I had coaches in from Louisville and Maryland come by last week," Alexander said. "Coach Swinney was going to come down for my basketball game on Thursday night but he couldn't make it because of the weather."

Speaking of basketball, Alexander continues to show his skills on the hardwood. "We won this week. It was a district game. I think I had 12 points," he added.
