"It was great," said Alexander. "My favorite part was going around the campus and looking at their facilities. I also liked their game against Miami. I liked how their defense swarms to the football and their offense is very productive.
"Their quarterback, Russell Wilson, is the truth. He's just a freshman... I just liked how he played with the defense. He makes the defense do whatever he wants them to do and if he doesn't like what he sees he takes off and makes all kinds of plays."
NC State defeated Miami 38-28 in the season finale to become bowl eligible. Alexander stated the he believes the Wolfpack is a team that can make a lot of noise in the future.
"NC State looks like they are on the rise to something great," he said. "They beat Miami... come on now, how many teams can say they beat Miami like that? They beat every team in North Carolina this year too. They are going to be real good next year."
Wolfpack freshman guard Zach Allen served as Alexander's player host. Allen, who hails from Tifton, Georgia, is redshirting this fall, his freshman year.
"Zach was real cool," said Alexander. "He's from Georgia too.. he was telling me that all I have to do is come in, get my grades right and everything else will take care of itself."
NC State linebackers coach Andy McCollum is recruiting Alexander for the Wolfpack. A standout at wide receiver, tailback, and cornerback, Alexander is a versatile athlete capable of playing a variety of positions.
"I talked a lot with coach McCollum," he stated. "He was telling me that they need some receivers, and they were saying that at cornerback I could also maybe get a spot early.
"I think he was looking for me to commit right there, but I told coach 'Mac' that I was going to make my decision sometime this week on where I'm going to go. He said he understands, and he's ready to hear back from me."
Alexander and his family met with Wolfpack head coach Tom O'Brien before he left Raleigh. How did that meeting go?
"It went really good," said Alexander. "Coach O'Brien was telling us how he's been at four schools in 35 years. He showed us the graduation rates they had at Boston College and they were very impressive. We really talked about academics too. I'm probably going to major in sports medicine with a minor in music."
With offers on the table from NC State, Arkansas, Louisville, and Indiana among others, Alexander has options but he has narrowed his list NC State and Louisville. He visited the Cardinals last week and appears to be extremely close to reaching a decision.
"It's still the same," he said. "There's no leader, but I want to commit as soon as possible. I talked with my family about it a little bit on the drive home from NC State and they are leaving it up to me.
"I'm going to sit down with my family and we'll go over what we like or dislike about the schools. After we do that I'm going to call the coach and let them know that I want to commit."
"I'm looking for the school where I will be able to come in and make an impact for the team."
