Cliff Alexander to Cut to 3 Before Decision (Updated)
Chicago Curie big man Cliff Alexander will cut his list from four to “three final schools” before his Nov. 15 announcement on ESPNU, according to Taylor Rooks of Fox Sports, who spoke with Alexander Monday.
Reports surfaced Monday that the 6-foot-9 Alexander would choose between local schools DePaul and Illinois — and had thus cut Kansas and Memphis — but Rooks quoted Alexander as saying those reports were “not true.”
“No, not at all. They don’t know what they’re talking about,” Latillia Alexander, Cliff’s mom, told SNY.tv Monday
