Following his official visit to the Forty Acres, rising Owasso (Okla.) weak-side defensive end Courtre Alexander has picked up an offer from the Texas Longhorns, he announced on Twitter.
A three-star prospect, Alexander is now up to 11 offers and along with Texas, his options include Tulsa, Memphis, Texas State and Tulane, among others.
Considering Texas is unquestionably the biggest offer among the bunch, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that two Crystal Ball picks have rolled in projecting Alexander to Austin.
As it currently stands, Texas’ 2018 class consists of 19 pledges and ranks No. 2 nationally, but features only one defensive line commit in the form of Houston Westfield defensive tackle Keondre Coburn.
Alexander helped lead his Owasso team to a 12-1 overall record in the 2017 season, which ended with the Rams beating Tulsa Union 21-14 in the Oklahoma 6A Division I state championship game. It was Owasso’s first state championship win in 43 years, and the first time since 1995 that a school other than Tulsa Union or Jenks won the championship of Oklahoma’s largest classification.
A 6’4, 235-pound prospect, Alexander is ranked as the nation’s No. 831 player, No. 49 weak-side defensive end and the No. 15 player in Oklahoma, per the 247Sports Composite rankings. He is the no. 21 prospect in The Oklahoman’s Super 30 rankings.
