"I love basketball," Alexander said. "I've been playing all of my life. I moved (to Iowa City) in seventh grade and football was something new to me so it was fun. But I think in college I want to play basketball."
Even if he receives more prestigious opportunities in football, which some onlookers believe that he will, than he does in basketball, Alexander his firm in his thinking.
"I'm getting looked at way more for football," He said. "Still, I just want to play basketball."
For football, Alexander said he's been hearing from Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Iowa State and Notre Dame. He is still waiting on his first scholarship offer. He's being looked at as a wide receiver.
"I've been talking to the coaches and they just want to keep in touch," Alexander said.
