Archer senior running back Chad Alexander played his best football at the end of the season last year, and that momentum has moved into the offseason where the speedy back has seen a recent uptick in his recruitment. The speedy back broke down the latest around his recruitment.
Who all has offered you?
I’ve been offered by Army, Navy, and Air Force.
Where have you visited? Do you have more visits planned soon?
I’ve visited Air Force, Pitt, and Rice and I’m visiting Tennesee tech on April 9th, Wofford on April 10th, and West Point on April 16th.
Goals for spring practice?
This spring I’m working on my craft and bringing energy and encouragement as a leader on my football team.
Are you camping this summer?
I will be attending camps this summer; I’m just not sure about where yet.
When would you like to make a decision?
I’d like to make my decision by late September
As we mentioned at the top, Alexander played his best football towards the end of the season. In the first round of the playoffs, he showed his excellent open-field speed going for 173 yards on just 9 rushes and scoring 3 touchdowns. Alexander hits his top speed quickly, and that can be attributed to his background in track and field where his personal record is 10.89 100m time. Obviously, option teams like Air Force, Army, and Navy really like the 2023 recruit’s breakaway speed having offered already, but that should foreshadow upcoming interest from more spread option teams. Colleges will be sure to watch how Alexander adds weight this offseason, but we think he is on the cusp of a big season upcoming this fall after showing flashes in 2021, so it’s definitely a great time to go after the dynamic 2023 running back.
