Alexander choosing among three
Notre Dame will host three-star cornerback Terrence Alexander of River Ridge (La.) John Curtis on an official visit the weekend of Jan. 17. Notre Dame has yet to officially extend an offer, but Alexander is hopeful that will happen when he steps foot on campus. Alexander does hold offers from both Stanford and Ole Miss, however. "Those (Notre Dame, Ole Miss, Stanford) are going to be the three schools that he decides from," Scott Gomez, wide receivers coach at John Curtis, said. "Ohio State was in it, but not anymore. And, Alexander has the grades to go anywhere in the country. That is not a hold-up." Alexander will also visit Stanford on Jan. 10 and Ole Miss on Jan. 24 and will make a final decision on signing day. "Family wants to keep him here," Gomez said. "But when he started talking to Notre Dame right after the state championship game, he and his dad were really excited about it. It's (Notre Dame) brand new to him. Once he gets on camps, anything can happen." "Stanford is beautiful, and it has a top-notch education," Gomez added. "Ole Miss is close to home, and his family can watch him play a lot. That's their selling point. Notre Dame speaks for itself. Notre Dame, Alabama, Oklahoma are the three schools that have been big-time for a long time." Alexander faced Scout.com's No. 1 wide receiver Malachi Dupre daily in practice. "He's locked up Dupre before," Gomez said. "He's a very, very smart player. Technically, he's very good. He has great hips and flexibility. He's a strong kid and put together well. He's just undersized. If he was 6-foot, he'd be going anywhere in this country. He'd be playing in this (Under Armour) game right now."
