WASHINGTON STATE'S recruiting season kicks into overdrive this weekend with at least seven known…
Pullman trip for Texas twosome is terrific
"It went very good," said Alexander. "I liked all of the coaches and the players. The facilities were really nice, I didn't know they were going to be that good."
Florida State, long a favorite for Alexander, has asked Alexander to come up on a visit the last recruiting weekend of the year but have not yet offered him a scholarship. He trips to Arkansas this coming weekend.
The Cougars made a decided impression during his visit but Alexander said he's still in the information gathering stage.
"Washington State is real high up now but I haven't thought about the order," said Alexander.
Alexander, who prefers to go out of state to play his college ball, has received over 40 offers according to Ike coach Darryl Phipps.
A punishing hitter, he played only three games his senior season with shoulder and knee injuries that have since healed up 100 percent. In his abbreviated two seasons as a starter, Alexander racked up 137 tackles (65 solo).
At the LSU camp this summer, Alexander ran a 4.51 in the 40 yard dash, with a 38-inch vertical and a 10-foot-9 standing broad jump.
HE DIDN'T MAKE it up to Pullman until Saturday but Robert Williams (6.3, 200) said it was well worth the wait.
"It was really good," said Williams. "I liked the way they run their business program over there."
Davis was also the player host for Williams and the two linebackers clicked.
"He's a cool dude," said Williams. "I got along well with him and one of the safeties there, Eric Frampton."
Williams had been considering taking a trip to Baylor but said he's probably done with official visits. Besides Washington State, he's tripped to Iowa State and UTEP and those schools make up his top three.
"I don't know, probably going to make my decision sometime not too far off," said Williams.
Williams, who runs a 4.6 in the 40, has in home visits scheduled this week with at least two of the schools, Washington State and UTEP. Along with Washington State, Williams holds offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Iowa State, Houston, Minnesota, Iowa, UTEP, Baylor and Arkansas.
