Alexander sets official visit to Notre Dame
Three-star Terrence Alexander of River Ridge (La.) John Curtis jumped onto Notre Dame's recruiting radar late in the game, but that hasn't stopped Alexander from reciprocating interest in the Irish. "I haven't been talking with Notre Dame for that long, but I want to give them a chance," Alexander said. "I just scheduled an official there last week. Obviously, when I visit I won't have the same chemistry with them as I do with Ole Miss and Stanford right now, but I want to put them on an even playing field when I take my officials." Notre Dame has a commit from four-star cornerback Nick Watkins, but is currently trailing USC for safety prospect Juju Smith. If the Irish want to add another defensive back prospect, Alexander has potential to be a steal. "I want to talk with Coach Cooks again to find out where I stand with Notre Dame before I visit," Alexander said. "When I visit there, I want to see how everything is up there since I've never visited that area before. I want to see how much the coaches are into me, too." The 5-foot-10, 185-pound cornerback will also take official visits to Stanford (Jan. 10) and Ole Miss (Jan. 24). "I plan on deciding on signing day, but if I feel like I need to commit somewhere before that, then I will," Alexander said. Alexander attends the same school as Scout.com's No. 1 wide receiver in the class of 2014, Malachi Dupre. "I'm aggressive and I have good instincts," Alexander said. "I'm aggressive on every down. I go up hard in coverage and have the speed to cover deep routes. I also return kicks and punts." Alexander said he'll consider a variety of factors in his final decision. "Academics, overall fit, and just if I can see myself living somewhere for the next four years will matter," Alexander said. "I'll also look at the depth chart and see if I fit into the defensive scheme. Anything can happen right now." Alexander is a three-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 38 cornerback in the class of 2014.
