2014 CB Terrence Alexander showed up a little late to LSU's Junior Day last weekend and was a bit surprised at what he found.
On campus were more than 200 prospects from across the nation. The number of players in attendance was far more than Alexander had expected, but despite those high numbers, he said he still enjoyed his visit.
"It worked out pretty well," Alexander said. "I just wasn't able to get the personal time I would have liked to get."
For a player still looking for an LSU offer, Alexander said he would have liked to spend more time talking with the coaches. He did get some brief one-on-one time with his lead recruiters — Frank Wilson and Corey Raymond — who had some encouraging words for him.
"Frank just checked in on me, wanted to see how track was going," Alexander said. "Coach Raymond said he's watched my film and said I should be good, that I don't have to worry about the offer too much."
If Alexander had to guess, he's hoping it could come by the summer, but it's not something he thinks about too much.
"I'm guessing spring or summer, but you never really know," Alexander said. "It'll be exciting to get an offer, but I'm not going to stress over it."
Aside from that conversation with the coaches, Alexander took Junior Day as an opportunity to explore the academic side of LSU. With plans to major in computer engineering at college, the academic support is a major factor in where he winds up.
"They showed us a lot besides just football," Alexander said. "When they showed us the academic center, that was pretty impressive. They showed the players' academic schedules and how much help they give. That was really nice to see that they give the players all the help they need to pass."
Alexander said he has no other visits planned for the spring and will wait until summer to hit the recruiting trail hard. Alexander said Georgia Tech, Nebraska and UCLA — who have all offered — have started picking up interest lately, with Stanford, Vanderbilt and Ole Miss still "showing the most love."
Offer could come soon for Alexander
