Wayne (N.J.) DePaul Catholic DE/OLB Quayshon Alexander remains committed to Nebraska but set a series of pre-Signing Day visits to make the most confident choice possible.
Alexander visited Indiana, Michigan and Pittsburgh and a stop to nearby Rutgers will be his final one before the 6-foot-2, 240-pounder shuts down his recruitment.
“This visit will be a lot of fun,” Alexander said. “I think I’ll have a great time over there seeing the new Rutgers plan and new vision for the future. I’m interested to see what they want to do with me and the team and academically.”
Alexander has family at Rutgers in brother Kiy Hester and the early feedback regarding coach Chris Ash and his staff re-sparked an interest in the program.
“My family thinks they’re only positive,” Alexander said on offseason changes at Rutgers. “Everything he wants to do for the players, even the little things of getting new dorms and feeding them differently, training them differently, it’s something that really intrigues me. I think it’s something I want to look at.
“… It’s going to be a matter of me going there and seeing how well I fit in. With my brother being there, it makes it a little bit easier. It makes me feel more comfortable with them. It’s something that I still have to look into and check thoroughly to see if it’s the right place for me.”
Ash visited Alexander’s home last week and the Nebraska staff will be back in to see him Thursday.
“It went well with coach Ash,” Alexander said. “He got to lay out his whole plan to me and my mother. It was something that sounded really nice and something I definitely want to look into and see for myself.”
