"Today, I went back out there. I went against '13 (Alabama commit) Raheem Falkins and he only caught one pass out of three tries. The coaches had told me I had a scholarship, but I didn't know if it was an offer or whether I was supposed to say something."
"I like how C.J. is going out and getting the best athletes in the south, especially right here in nola (shorthand for the metro New Orleans area). Tulane is going to be good in a couple of years. I think my teammate Sherman Badie ('13 RB) might commit soon, too."
Alexander has a reputation as a sticky, stifling, shutdown corner. He'll get tested on September 7th when John Curtis Christian matches up with pass-happy juggernaut Tampa (FL) Plant HS, the defending Class 8A state champ, who travels to the New Orleans Superdome for a doubleheader that, in the other game, will pit St. Paul's (Covington, La.) against Tallahassee (FL) Lincoln. The event is billed as the Allstate Sugar Bowl Prep Classic.
Curtis went 14-0 last year. The Patriots are widely considered a top ten team entering the 2012 season. Plant concluded the 2011 season as the No. 14 team in the nation, according to the Scout Top 50.
