Xavier Alexander, a 6-foot-4, 185-pound shooting guard from Midwest City High School in Oklahoma City, Okla., is about to hit the road.
Alexander will take his first official visit of the year this weekend to George Washington and has a couple of other programs in his sight for visits, too. GWU gets first crack at the under the radar and powerfully built wing guard.
"I like their style of play and the coach there is pretty cool. I like the way they use their big guards and can see myself playing like that," Alexander said.
The Atlantic 10 program has offered, he said, as have Wichita State, Nevada, Nebraska and Arkansas State. Tennessee is also involved, he said.
"I am definitely visiting Nevada and Tennessee, for sure," Alexander said.
The visits will play a big part in his decision, Alexander said, and hopes to see enough to commit sooner than later and eventually sign on Nov. 12.
"I want to play as a freshman and find a good program where I can get good coaching," Alexander said. "That's why I can't wait to take these visits."
George Washington is also the only program to set up an in-home visit. Alexander said Karl Hobbs is coming on Sept. 17.
Alexander averaged 17 points and eight rebounds a game as a junior last year at Midwest City.
