Justin Wilcox and Co. picked up a big top-6 listing on Monday night when four-star receiver and the seventh-best player in the state of Washington listed the Cal Golden Bears in his top six schools.
Alexander listed Cal with Arizona State, Minnesota, Utah, Washington and Washington State.
I wanna thank you for all the colleges and coaches that have recruited me through this whole process. But these are my top schools I’m focusing on #Top6 ✍ pic.twitter.com/c1sep2UOUE— Lonyatta Alexander ‘2021 (@LonyattaA) April 7, 2020
Standing at 6’3, 170 pounds, 247Sports lists him as the 33rd-best receiver in the country, seventh-best prospect in Washington and the 207th-best prospect in the class of 2021. His 247Sports composite sees him land at 316th-best overall, ninth in Washington and 55th-best receiver (the 247Sports composite takes the rankings of all the major recruiting services and averages it out). He’s a four-star in their composite as well.
National Recruiting Editor for 247Sports, Brandon Huffman, compared Alexander to current Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay, expressing that he’s a fluid receiver without top-end speed but possesses great separation ability. He projects as a Day 3 draft pick but a strong Power-5 starter at this stage in his career.
Thanks to Hudl, we can take a look at his highlights from his junior season. I don’t know about you, but I’d be happy if Alexander were a Bear sooner than later.
Reminder, Cal has The Axe!
