Alexander to Visit Georgia Tech

2015 three-star Jacksonville (Fla.) Trinity Christian middle linebacker Victor Alexander is committed to UCLA, but is taking a visit to Georgia Tech this weekend...

Jacksonville, Florida middle linebacker Victor Alexander gave an early verbal to UCLA. Alexander recently toured some schools with his teammates and he is now getting ready to visit another school of interest with his family.

His team’s coordinators took Alexander and his teammates on a tour of seven schools. The one school that stood out to Alexander was Notre Dame.

“The head coach met us as we were getting off the bus and shook each one of our hands and introduced himself to us," Alexander said. "He was really into the recruiting part of his job."

Georgia Tech was one of the schools that Alexander and his teammates were supposed to visit on the tour, but they weren't able to make it work. Instead, Alexander and his family will be visiting Georgia Tech this weekend.

“I really want to learn more about the program," Alexander said. "I know they have a great reputation and history with their engineering program.”

Alexander wants to major in Civil Engineering and knowing how valuable that degree would be is a big deal to him.

When he visits this weekend, Alexander will be catching up with former teammate and Georgia Tech corner Lynn Griffin as well as his friend Tech corner Step Durham.

“Lynn and I talk a lot and he has said that Georgia Tech is a great place and I would be a great fit for the school and the football program," Alexander said. “I love the curriculum. You look at how successful their graduates are. You have to be impressed with how Georgia Tech can prepare you for life.”

Alexander and his family will arrive in Atlanta Friday and return home either Saturday night or Sunday, as he wants to check out the entirety of the campus and the surrounding area.

Heading into the visit at Tech, Alexander has a top five that includes Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, UCLA, Utah, and Virginia Tech.

“It sounds strange putting Utah in there but they have really recruited me hard and you have to like that," Alexander said.

Alexander plans to announce his college choice the week before signing day.
