A little more than a month ago Jacksonville (Fla.) Trinity Christian linebacker Victor Alexander received his two most high-profile scholarship offers from Virginia Tech and UCLA. The junior committed to UCLA shortly after receiving the Bruins offer. Today the 5-foot-10 and 220-pound prospect received a huge in-state offer that most would consider his biggest offer to-date.
"Victor has been offered by Florida," said Trinity Christian defensive coordinator Gerard Ross.
Alexander joins several of his underclassmen teammates that have offers from Florida. Junior linebacker Jeffrey Holland, junior free safety Deontai Williams and junior offensive guard Kendrick Norton also have scholarship offers from Florida. Trinity Christian senior offensive tackle Kavaris Harkless also recently picked up an offer from the Gators.
"Victor is hands down one of the best linebackers in the country; he might get overlooked, not because of his performance, but because of his height. He is the best player on our team," continued Coach Ross.
It is not known how the offer from Florida will play a factor in Alexander remaining committed to UCLA.
"Not much, yet," was the answer given by Coach Ross when ask if the linebacker's latest offer would has had any impact on his UCLA pledge.
Alexander on film and in-person is a hard-nosed, tough, downhill linebacker who is constantly around the ball. He sees plays develop well and does an outstanding job of reading his keys and finding his way to the ball and is an aggressive sure-tackler.
Florida Atlantic, Memphis, Navy, Old Dominion and UAB have also offered Alexander. Georgia Tech, Indiana, UCF and Wake Forest are all actively recruiting the linebacker but have yet to offer.
