Clemson draws even with Cards for Alexander

Kevin Alexander, the nation's No. 53 outside linebacker prospect, called Louisville his leader following an official visit to U of L last weekend. After visiting Clemson this weekend, Alexander now says it's a two team race between the Cardinals and Tigers.

When Kevin Alexander left his official visit last weekend from Louisville, the nation's No. 53 outside linebacker proclaimed the Cardinals the leader for his services.

Sunday night, the Lake Butler, Florida native was signing a much different tune.

Over the weekend, Alexander made an official visit to Clemson and came away impressed what he saw. He met with Tigers coach Tommy Bowden, and Clemson assistants will visit him tomorrow. Alexander told CUTigers.com that he rated the visit a 9.5 on a 10 scale.

"It went well," Alexander said. "It was a great visit."

The visit went so well for Alexander, that he's moved the Tigers into a tie with Louisville.

"I'd say it's pretty much tied up between Louisville and Clemson," said Alexander. "I felt comfortable at both places and both teams players hang out together."

Alexander declined to name a favorite between the two programs. Asked if he had to decide between Louisville and Clemson tonight, Alexander said, "I just don't know."

Alexander has an official visit scheduled to Tennessee next weekend, but that visit sounded uncertain at best. If he doesn't visit the Vols, Alexander said he might take a visit to Central Florida instead. It sounds like his next visit, if there is one, might be his final one.

"The next visit might be my last one," he said.
