The 6-1, 177-pound Alexander has speed, the ability to move well both front, back, and side-to-side. The best example of that we saw in a playoff game against Dallas South Oak Cliff as he does his best impression of a "Barry Sanders run."
Alexander probably covered close to 100 yards of ground while gaining around 50 yards. He had a burst into the open field but was caught in traffic twice and the Golden Bears defenders couldn't get a hand on him as he maneuvered his way out of two jams before kind of running out of juice in a third jam at the 30-yard line.
I can see with his athletic ability how he would make for a really outstanding cornerback, especially standing 6-1. He throws well enough to be dangerous when you combine his run ability.
He turns the corner beautifully as he has that really good gear in the forward and just a little sideways mode. He also has really good vision and that is what allows him to avoid a lot of traffic and then get out of it when he lands in the middle of it. I also like his balance and in traffic he does show some tough running.
Baylor, Texas Tech and West Virginia join Oklahoma State as Big 12 teams that have offered a scholarship and SMU and Tulsa are also already on his dance card. I can see him playing offense or defense.
