This news came on the heels of a commitment from Louisville Ballard (KY) point guard Quentin Snider just hours earlier. That was their third commitment in the class along with Memphis White Station (TN) power forward Leron Black and Champaign Centennial power forward Michael Finke.
Alexander has been the top target for the Illlini coaching staff since Head Coach John Groce took over. They will have one of the last opportunities to host the all-world power forward on a visit.
The senior has a visit set up to Arizona this upcoming weekend.
