"I was able to see everything on campus for the first time," said Alexander, whose first scholarship offer came from the Rebels. "The fact that they were first to offer, along with how they've been recruiting me hard since then, shows me Ole Miss is excited about me.
"They put me on the map with my first offer, and that's a big plus. All the coaches love me and it's not far from home. They showed me the family atmosphere on campus again."
"An opportunity is there for early playing time at Ole Miss," Alexander added. "I gotta work to come in and get it, because it's not something they just give to you. "Ole Miss is a premier school in the SEC. I like all the coaches and have a great relationship with Coach (Grant) Heard and Coach (Jason) Jones."
Ohio State is the next campus that Alexander is expected to visit.
"I'll be there for two or three days," he said, "starting on the 21st of this month."
The Buckeyes offered Alexander earlier this month.
Looking to later events on the summer calendar, Alexander will compete in The Opening, where he'll be accompanied by secondary mate Mattrell McGraw.
"I'm getting ready for it," he said. "I think most poeple have me underrated so this is the opportunity I need to show what I can do."
As a junior Alexander helped John Curtis to its first-ever national title. He packed on a substantial amount of muscle during the off-season without losing any speed.
