U of L QB prospect Earl Alexander shuffles list

Earl Alexander, a 6-foot-5, 210-pound quarterback, is considered one of the South's best athletes this season. While he lists Louisville on his short list of favorties, Alexander recently added another school to his list and appears in no hurry to make a college decision.

Earl Alexander is one of the top athletes in the Southeast. The 6-5, 210 pound star has started to trim his list of favorites, and one new school has joined the list.

"My favorites right now are Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Louisville, and Georgia Tech," said Earl Alexander. "I don't have an overall favorite. I am wide open."

Georgia Tech is a new school entering the race for Alexander's signature. Like the other schools on his list, the Yellow Jackets offer the same criteria that has Alexander's attention.

"Georgia Tech is the same as the other schools," he said. "It's a good school, and I could see myself playing there. I like their style of play, how they pass, and how they run the ball. They also have good coaches."

Two camps remain on the four-star athlete's itinerary for the summer, and he will try to visit a few schools unofficially before summer's end.

"I will head to Auburn this Saturday. I will go to LSU's camp July 25. I will probably try to take unofficial visits to Alabama and Auburn before the summer is over," said Alexander.

When asked about a time-frame for his decision, Alexander replied, "No doubt it will be after the season. I want to take all five of my official visits before I make a decision."

Alexander is more excited about his senior season than his recruitment. Switching to a new offense has the dual-threat quarterback thinking big things for his team in the fall.

"We have great participation this summer. Everyone is on the same page. We are all very excited about the season. We are going to be really good. I can't wait to run our new spread offense. I will have the chance to pass and run the ball more. It is going to be a lot of fun," said Alexander.
