Cliff Alexander Talks Michigan State Visit

Chicago Curie star Cliff Alexander, who currently ranks among the top 5 class of 2014 prospects nationally, took an unofficial visit to Michigan State on Tuesday.

We caught up with Alexander who discussed the visit as well as his junior season on the hardwood.

Talk about the trip to Michigan State on Tuesday evening?
“It was great. The fans showed a lot of love. The game was crazy and the crowd really got into it.  Like I said before, they showed love by chanting my name.  It was fun.”
What did the coaching staff and Coach Izzo have to say while you were on your visit?
“Not much really. They just said it was great having me there for the game and that Coach Izzo wants me to be a Spartan.”
Talk about the high school season and how it's going for you?

“I'm having a breakout junior season. I keep getting the ball more, lots of plays are being run through me, and I’m continuing to play as hard as I can on both ends of the floor.”
What are your expectations for the remainder of the season?
“To just keep winning, beat Simeon, and win state.”
