Devils Battling For Top DL Prospect

After the explosion of scholarship offers in early March, Ben Alexander of Anderson (S.C.) Hanna has seen a slight drought. This past week, however, the drought was answered when three new tenders poured in increasing his offers count to seven. <P>

"Over the course of the past week or two I have received offers from University of Kentucky, University of North Carolina, and Auburn University," said Ben Alexander.

Florida State, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, and Duke round out the remaining names on 6-foot-1, 288-pound defensive tackle's offers sheet.

Alexander admits coaching staffs that extend late summer offers will lessen their chances, but revealed each new offer has little effect on his favorites list – or lack there of.

"At first and still I've been wide open as far as colleges and not really have a favorite," said Alexander. "Right now, it's just more options to choose from; now I have more offers and more choices and more things to sort out. If a school offers in like September, I will be nice to have, but it won't give me enough time to make a decision."

Alexander's lack of a leader or favorites list has nothing to do with lack of research. The lineman has unofficially visited South Carolina, Duke, North Carolina, and Clemson, and plans to attend a Clemson spring practice Friday and Georgia Tech's junior day Saturday.

Alexander figures to plan an equally eventful summer camping schedule with Texas the lone definite trip. Alexander is also entertaining the idea of camping at each of his offering schools as well as Clemson.
