Cliff Alexander, a 6-foot-9, 230-pound, center from Chicago, IL., recently trimmed his list to ten. Rick Pitino and the Louisville Cardinals are one of the ten teams that the Windy City native says he is currently considering.
Kansas, Arizona, Baylor, DePaul, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Memphis and Michigan State are the other nine schools that Alexander is listing.
At this point, it appears that Kentucky, Michigan State and Kansas are the favorite to land the five-star prospect. However, Alexander still appears to be taking Louisville very seriously.
“Rick Pitino is a great guy and I want to take a visit down there, I just don’t know when though,” Alexander recently tells Scott Phillips of NY2LASports.com.
I realize Cliff Alexander to Louisville is an extreme long shot, but getting an official visit from him would be a huge step in the right direction. Louisville needs to add some post-presence in the 2014 class, in my opinion. There aren’t many guys better than Alexander....
