Top Cornerback Mackensie Alexander Chooses Clemson
Alexander is a lockdown cornerback that is expected to make an immediate impact and this is a huge pick-up for the Tigers. He was originally committed to Tennessee months ago before decommitting and opening up his recruiting process once again.
He had no clear favorite until today when he donned that Clemson Tigers orange hat at his signing day conference.
Alexander took just four official visits to Texas A&M, Clemson, Mississippi State and Auburn. The choice was seemingly a surprise to everyone following the talented recruit because of his quietness of his favorite.
The Immokalee High standout was relatively unknown at the beginning of his junior season, but a strong couple of seasons catapulted the 5-foot-11, 175-pound defensive back into one of the top ranking spots in college football recruiting.
He was first-team all-state the past two seasons and had a combined seven interceptions and 11 passes defended throughout the junior and senior seasons of the cornerback.
Immokalee High seems to be a hotbed of talent as three other players signed Wednesday with top schools. Quaterback Tshumbi Johnson signed with Cincinnati, running back Jacky Marcellus signed with West Virginia and defensive lineman Deadrin Senat signed with South Florida.
The Clemson class is one of the top in the country and this addition of the No. 4 recruit in the country won’t hurt the class at all.
