Alexander down to three

Cartersville (GA) running back Morgan Alexander has narrowed his list down to three programs, one each from the ACC, SEC and Big East. Alexander also has scheduled his first official visit to a Big East power.

"My recruitment is going good. I just picked up an offer from NC State two weeks ago. Right now it's North Carolina State, Louisville, and Arkansas that I am really interested in," said Alexander.

Blessed with an abundance of speed and elusiveness, Alexander says that he is being recruited as an athlete that could see action on either side of the ball. He has one visit set in stone with two others in the works.

"Right now I have one visit set up and that is to Louisville on November 22nd. And as for NC State and Arkansas I need to really map out some visit dates around my football schedule," said Alexander.

So what attracted Alexander to each of his finalists?

Louisville: "They've got a good athletic program and I logged on to their website and checked out their academics and they are good also."

NC State: "Even though they are really just getting it going with their athletics up there I really think they are going to get things going. And that is somewhere I could go and help them out."

Arkansas: "With their academics they are hands down good. But what really got me were their athletics really stood out. And it is in the SEC so that good."

How will Morgan decide between his three finalists?

"It isn't all about football for me so when I get on campus I am going to check out the academic features and information. And then I want to go see how their facilities look and their sports complex looks," said Alexander. "And as far as all three go academic-wise they all have what I am looking for so it is basically coming down to the athletics for each school."

With visits upcoming, Alexander says no school has thrust into the lead for his services.

"The three schools are even right now, but I will hopefully have a leader here in a couple of weeks," said Alexander.

Alexander maintains that he will make all three of his visits before making his final decision.
