According to Dripping Springs, Texas native Daniel Alexander, there are two things you can do in the small town outside of Austin during the summer months.
"I have a hoop outside and I try to shoot about 500 shots a day," he said. "Or you can go cow-tipping."
Alexander, a versatile 6-foot-8 forward from the class of 2010, says he has stayed away from the pastures and spent nearly every waking minute on his driveway perfecting his shot and overall basketball skill set.

His hard work is paying off. The future four-star forward recently received his first scholarship offers.
"I just got back from A&M's elite camp and Baylor's elite camp and Marquette's. I received offers from all three," Alexander reported. "The playing level was really high and at all three camps, I got to play with their players that go to those schools. That was a lot of fun."
Texas A&M, Baylor, Marquette, Texas, LSU, Oklahoma, Utah, California and others have shown various levels of interest to date, Alexander said.
"Right now we're staying open right now and just playing it all by ear and seeing how it all goes," Alexander said. "It was a huge jump for sure. It went from some recognition to quite a bit. It's an interesting feeling."
Alexander's next stop on the camp trail comes on June 26-27 when he'll participate at Texas' elite camp. To start July, Alexander will play at the John Lucas camp in Houston Alexander and his Texas D1 Ambassadors team will play in Denton, Texas, Tulsa, Oklahoma and in Las Vegas during the July evaluation period.
