Ohio State recently offered 2014 three-star Louisiana defensive back Terrence Alexander. The 5-10 175 pound shutdown corner accounted for over 30 tackles and 16 pass deflections last season playing alongside fellow Buckeye target Mattrell McGraw in the John Curtis High secondary. If the John Curtis name sounds familiar, it is because its the same New Orleans High School to produce ex-OSU and NFL running back Jonathan Wells.
I had the chance to catch up with Terrence to discuss his Ohio State offer, Urban Meyer and more. This is what the down south terror-in-the-secondary had to say:
"It's great getting an offer from a university like Ohio State. When it comes to college football, it can't really get bigger; it's a prestigious program. I really like Coach Meyer as a coach. Everywhere he goes becomes a winning program for the most part. I like the fact that he is trying to bring the southern players to Columbus. I have also talked to Coach Withers and Coach Coombs. When it comes to visits, I plan to visit soon, I just have to get everything official."
Coach Meyer and the Buckeyes aren't the only team trying to add the name Terrence Alexander to their roster; programs such as Arkansas, Ole Miss, Stanford, Georgia Tech and Kansas State have all sent scholarship offers his way. Even though he has yet to visit Columbus and there is still plenty of time left till February when he will sign a national letter of intent, two recruiting analysts, including our own Zach Clark, have already cast their 247Sports Crystal Ball Predictions that Terrence will end up a part of the 2014 Ohio State recruiting class.
Alexander has a few things he is looking for before he commits to a school "I'm looking for a strong degree, a home feeling and what system they run" Terrence said "I'm also looking at how early I can play".
To see what Alexander could potentially bring to the Buckeyes, check out his highlights from last season:
