Alexander camps with LSU, FSU

'14 CB Terrence Alexander from John Curtis Christian has early offers from Ole Miss and Tulane. Last week, he camped with LSU and Florida State, and we talked with the shutdown corner to get the details from both camps.

Junior cornerback Terrence Alexander went against a bevy of top-notch athletes at LSU's camp early last week.

"In the one-on-one's, I faced Chuck Baker (LSU commit), Trey Quinn (LSU offer), the Arkansas commit (Jervenski Johnson from Amite HS) and Jeryl Brazil (LSU commit)," he said.

"I talked to Les Miles. He told me to keep doing what I've been doing, and that I'll be a real good player. I talked to Frank (Wilson) after the camp. He told me to be ready because I'm next. I talked to Frank about an offer, and I thought it might happen at the camp."

After Baton Rouge, Alexander and his dad ventured east to Florida State.

"I ran a 4.4-something at Florida State camp," said Alexander, who reportedly had the fastest time of the camp. "They make you run the 40 after the first practice of the day. The Florida State coaches want you to run it when you're tired - so they can see your game speed.

"I ran faster than I thought (he ran a 4.52 at one of LSU's two summer camps). The camp was good at Florida State, but they didn't have an 'opportunity period' (one-on-one matchups pitting top prospects). I wasn't able to show them all I can do. I talked to their DBs coach. He said they'll evaluate me after the season."

Texas A&M and Cincinnati are showing interest in Alexander, who talked next about the Ole Miss Rebels.

"I like Ole Miss," he said. "It's the coaches. I have real good chemistry with the coaches there. I talk to (DBs) Coach (Wesley) McGriff a lot.

"I'm going to visit Ole Miss before the season starts."
