Alexander Continues to Impress

'14 CB Terrence Alexander from John Curtis Christian (River Ridge, La.) has early offers from Ole Miss and Tulane, and he put on a clinic today in Dallas.

Terrence Alexander did his thing today in Dallas at an elite, invitation-only event.

"He was one of six cornerbacks selected to the finals," said his father, Bandele Alexander. "Some of the others were (Texas prospects) Edward Paris, Tony Brown and Cedric Collins."

Local CB Paris (Mansfield Timberview), who is originally from New Orleans, has offers from LSU, Michigan, Nebraska, Ohio State, Texas A&M, UCLA and several more.

Brown, from Beaumont Ozen in southeast Texas, counts Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma, Mississippi State, TCU and Texas Tech among his offers.

Collins, out of Skyline HS in Dallas, holds offers from Baylor, Kansas State, SMU and West Virginia, among others.

"Terrence did pretty well," said dad. "Once or twice, he got anxious and looked back at the quarterback instead of continuing to focus on the receiver.

"There was a lot of talent there. A lot of the highest-ranked corners were there; some really good ballplayers. (Defensive end) Gerald Willis (from Edna Karr in the New Orleans metro area) got defensive most valuable player, and Quentin Gibson (from Archbishop Shaw, another metro program) was QB MVP.

'Speedy' (the nickname of Devante Noil, also from Edna Karr) was there with the wide receivers."

Alexander, who didn't get the chance to go one-on-one versus Noil, mentioned KD Cannon (another Lone Star State product) as a wide receiver who impressed.

"It went real good today," said Alexander. "We started off with a whole lot of agilities, then position drills and 'pass skelly.'

"The first time I went against a receiver in one-on-one drills, I jammed him good and the DBs coach jumped up and down and was yelling (encouragement)."

Alexander has upcoming camps at LSU and Florida State.

"Coach Frank (Wilson) said I have to do good at LSU's camp," he said. "He told me to come back (Alexander camped with the Tigers last month, too).

"I don't know if LSU will offer after their camp, but I know they like me."

Alexander earned offers from Ole Miss and Tulane after camping with each of those programs.

He was in the starting rotation last year for John Curtis Christian, which has arguably the nation's best secondary with '13 S Brandon Porter (San Diego State offer), '13 CB/S Richard Allen (Tulane, McNeese St. offers), '13 CB Jacolby Cooper (state champ in 400 meters), '14 CB/S Mattrell McGraw, '14 CB Prine Lewis and '15 S Hunter Dale (Arizona State, Tulane offers).

John Curtis went 14-0 last year and won the school's 24th state championship. The Patriots have a highly-anticipated interstate matchup on tap for September 7th vs. Tampa Plant in the Superdome in New Orleans.

Plant, the defending 8A state champ in Florida, completed the 2011 season ranked No. 14 in the nation.
