Five-star center Cliff Alexander is one of top the prospects in the country and he’s also one of Rick Pitino’s top targets in the 2014 class.
Alexander, a 6-foot-9, 225-pound, Chicago native listed Louisville as one of the schools he wants to take an official visit to.
At the Peach Jam AAU event yesterday Alexander told 247Sports.com that he has a great relationship with Rick Pitino.
