Alex plays a combination of LB and Safety in high school, which leads to some diverse film. He rushes the passer, shows sideline-to-sideline quickness and drops into both man and zone coverage.
At 6’3″ 210 lbs, he will have to put on weight similar to Buddy Brown in order to play linebacker, but his diverse skill set should make the transition simpler.
The Reading, PA native has offers from Florida, Ohio State and Maryland, among others.
This would be another big in-state acquisition for Bill O’Brien and his staff in their quest to lock down the local talent.
